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.
