Clark Ashton Smith's birthday

Today is Clark Ashton Smith’s birthday! Had the grand old man of weird fantasy stories been alive, he would have reached the Malygris-like age of 115 today. Doubtless, on some other planet, he turned 4 million years old today—surviving as an animate, verdigris-encrusted mummy with necromantic powers. He would have loved it.
