THE NINTH SKELETON BY CLARK ASHTON SMITH


THE NINTH SKELETON BY CLARK ASHTON SMITH - A young man sets out on a hike, along a treacherous California trail. He has plans to meet up with his fiancé. Reality slips away, as his surroundings transform into something more evil. He inexplicably finds himself in a decaying graveyard, with an indecipherable language written on the stones. A skeleton parade saunters past him in the climax, skeletons with oddly feminine characteristics. The Ninth Skeleton by Clark Ashton Smith was first published in Weird Tales in 1928. Want to read more? Clark Ashton Smith is available widely online in variety of formats, some of which now are available in the public domain.
