The Double Shadow: A Clark Ashton Smith Podcast

Episode #15: “The Last Incantation”

A transcription of this episode is available.

Welcome to Poseidonis! The About page has been updated with our new list of stories. Today we start off with “The Last Incantation.”

Unicorn head by Robert A Neri Jr. or Ranger Games

We’ve jumped back in time to June of 1930, when this story was published in Weird Tales and to an era after the glory of Atlantis, but before Averoigne. The series is bookended with stories about Malygris, possibly the greatest sorcerer/necromancer we’ve run across so far.

Next time, join us on “A Voyage to Sfanomoët;.”

    What a cruel teaching!!! The gloomy decadence of the the girl was the mirror of Malygris own decrepitude of body and soul… But, why he didn’t enjoy it… After all, it’s a good example of a necromantic rality.

    I want Malygris’ stuff. Just, like, all of his stuff.
