All of the Averoigne Stories in One Volume

“The Averoigne Archives” is a collection by Clark Aston Smith that includes all of his stories set in a fictional province of medieval France. This place is known as Averoigne, and it includes the cathedral city of Vyônes and the Abbey of Périgon. It has dark deep forests where werewolves and satyrs can be encountered, and in hidden places there remain ancient monuments to pagan gods. Sometimes, the unlucky find themselves passing through portals to parallel worlds, different times, or places of illusion.

Clark Ashton Smith was one of the Weird Tales authors, and a contemporary and correspondent of H. P. Lovecraft. I personally consider his work more dark fantasy than horror. He was also a poet, and his prose is lyrical and unique. His works can be found online, but e-book collections can be hit or miss. I think this particular publication is worthwhile as it collects all of the Averoigne stories in one volume.
