Been reading The Collected Stories of Arthur C. Clarke. For the most part its been great, the exceptions being anything from his Tales of the White Hart series, which for me is just a little too mundane.
Aw. I love the Harry Purvis stuff. It's a great volume, also, pretty sure I have it around here somewhere.

Also making my way through The Collected Fantasies of Clark Ashton Smith Vol.1.
While on the other hand I find Clark Ashton Smith a dreadful bore. I read his Commoriom cycle and... that was enough for me.
l agree that Klarkash-Ton can be a little heavy on the eyes, but l find myself inexorably drawn to that good old 1920s-30s pulp madness. l haven't come across any of the Commoriom stories yet, though.
