This chilling tale from pulp master Clark Ashton Smith comes to life with the storytelling of narrator Will Hahn. An innocent youth serving the king of a corrupt nation gains the attention of the sorcerous and attractive princess, whom it is sin to serve but doom to deny. Can his saintly uncle truly protect him from his hermitage two days' ride away?
The text of this tale is drawn from The Collected Fantasies of Clark Ashton Smith, edited by Scott Connors and Ron Hilger published by Night Shade Books and used with the kind permission of CASiana Literary Enterprises, the Literary Estate of Clark Ashton Smith.
