The Metamorphosis of Earth
by Clark Ashton Smithhttp://www.eldritchdark.com/writings/sh ... s-of-earth
This is a superbly well written horror / sci fi story.
I have found that Clark Ashton Smith's stories have a style that resembles Lovecraft's style. Since they were contemporaries, this is understandable. This particular short story doesn't resemble Lovecraft, and that's good. Compared to Smith's other stuff that I've read, this story shows a bit of stylistic maturity. I haven't read a lot of Smith's work, so I could be in for more pleasant surprises in the future.
Recommendation: If you like HP Lovecraft, WH Hodgson, or HG Wells, you'd probably like this.
