The Last Hieroglyph is the final volume of a five book project to collect all of Clark Ashton Smith's stories together for the first time. The stories are arranged chronologically, so this fifth volume collects the last stories in Smith's career. The book contains many unforgettable stories, and Smith's unique gift for language and imagery is on full display here. However, the strain that Smith was under in the last years of his life shows up in some of the later stories, resulting in some works that are not Smith's best.

From official release/information:

Product Description: The Last Hieroglyph is the fifth of the five volume Collected Fantasies series. Editors Scott Connors and Ron Hilger have compared original manuscripts, various typescripts, published editions, and Smith's notes and letters, in order to prepare a definitive set of texts. The Last Hieroglyph includes, in chronological order, all of Clark Ashton Smith's stories from "The Dark Age" to "The Dart of Rasasfa."
