Forgotten Stories: MOTHER OF TOADS by Clark Ashton Smith (1938)

This charming little tale from the July 1938 issue of Weird Tales is an oddity. It's one of those rare Clark Ashton Smith works that won't send you repeatedly to the dictionary to figure out what the heck he's saying. Thanks to, from whence it came.

And not just any dictionary! Nothing less than the Oxford Unabridged will do when reading CAS!

I could have learned a lot of cool words from Smith, but I neglected to use them in conversation, and now don't remember a ding dang one.
