"The legend of Mmatmuor and Sodosma shall arise only in the latter cycles of Earth, when the glad legends of the prime have been forgotten. Before the time of its telling, many epochs shall have passed away, and the seas shall have fallen in their beds, and new continents shall have come to birth. Perhaps, in that day, it will serve to beguile for a little the black weariness of a dying race, grown hopeless of all but oblivion. I tell the tale as men shall tell it in Zothique, the last continent, beneath a dim sun and sad heavens where the stars come out in terrible brightness before eventide..."
For all things Clark Ashton Smith visit The Eldritch Dark, the Sanctum of Clark Ashton Smith. For the most comprehensive repository of all things Zothique, stick around. Soon I will be adding encyclopedic entries for the world of Zothique in the Lore section.
