Clark Ashton Smith
Birth: Jan. 13, 1893
Placer County
California, USA
Death: Aug. 14, 1961
Pacific Grove
Monterey County
California, USA

Poet, author, painter, artist, sculptor. A master of vividly weird imagery, Smith was the third of the "Three Musketeers" published regularly in "Weird Tales" magazine along with H.P. Lovecraft and Robert E. Howard, whom he never met, but with whom he corresponded extensively. He considered himself primarily a poet, but turned out many short stories; he also produced impressively disturbing sketches, paintings, and sculptures.

Plot: The poet's ashes lie beside, or beneath, a boulder to the immediate west of where his childhood home (destroyed by fire in 1957) stood; some were also scattered in a stand of blue oaks near the boulder. There is no marker.
