Night Shade Weird is an ebook bundle featuring the dark fantasy fiction of Clark Ashton Smith, William Hope Hodgson, and other classic authors from Night Shade Books. Fans of the Cthulhu Mythos know Clark Ashton Smith (1893-1961) as the creator of Tsathoggua, Ubbo-Sathla, the Plutonian Drug, and other Mythos staples; gamers may know Smith's land of Averoigne from the 1981 D&D module X2 Castle Amber. William Hope Hodgson (1877-1918) wrote The House on the Borderland and The Night Land, among other pioneering works of cosmic terror. This all-new collection of Kindle and ePub ebooks brings you authoritative complete editions of both Smith and Hodgson, as well as two volumes of recent Cthulhu Mythos stories by others, for an unbeatable bargain price.

For just US$4.95 you get all three ebooks in our bargain-priced Weird Fiction Sampler (retail value $49), including Volume 1 of The Collected Fantasies of Clark Ashton Smith; The Ghost Pirates and Others: The Best of William Hope Hodgson; and The Book of Cthulhu I, with recent Mythos fiction by Charles Stross, Bruce Sterling, Thomas Ligotti, and many more. Each title is presented in two DRM-free formats: Kindle (.mobi) and ePub (for Kobo Reader, the Nook, and most other ereaders).

Like what you read in the Sampler? Then upgrade your purchase to also get our Complete Collection with twelve more titles worth an additional $146, including the remaining four volumes of The Collected Fantasies of Clark Ashton Smith (plus his Miscellaneous Writings); all five volumes of The Complete Fiction of William Hope Hodgson; and The Book of Cthulhu II, the companion anthology with stories by Neil Gaiman, Adam Scott Glancy (Delta Green), Fritz Leiber, Karl Edward Wagner, and many more. And we also include the fourth installment of Marcus Rowland's free Victorian-era RPG of scientific romances, Forgotten Futures, with a full roleplaying treatment of Hodgson's "Carnacki the Ghost-Finder" stories.
