The Door to Saturn
I learned of Clark Ashton Smith relatively recently—around the time I discovered the OSR. I just read The Door to Saturn. What a fun story!
And this is just awesome:
[…] Malygris, who lay dead for years while men believed him living; who, lying thus, still uttered potent spells and dire oracles with decaying lips.*

The Eldritch Dark is one of the best websites out there - a straightforward online collection of great fantasy tales that fits in great with the weird fantasy feel of a lot of OSR stuff. I look to Wikisource for public domain HP Lovecraft and RE Howard stories, and to the Eldritch Dark for Clark Ashton Smith.

I’ve developed a fondness for CAS as well.
