    Hi,
    does anyone know if any of the works by the "gang" (CAS, Belknap, Wandrei, etc.) other than HPL and REH is available online?

    Addendum: google wasn't really my friend when I looked for Wandrei.

    Aside from CAS, not much, as most are still in copyright. (Long died in the late 1990s, Wandrei in 1987 -- in addition to which Wandrei became quite difficult to deal with in his later years, so would have been likely to not let things slide on this.) As for CAS:


    Clark Ashton Smith - The Eldritch Dark


    Now... when you use the term "the gang", I take it you're referring to those HPL used that term for, yes? In which case, there are a number of other writers whose works might be found here and there (I'm not sure about this, but many of them are in public domain, having been published in amateur publications originally): Rheinhart Kleiner, Samuel Loveman, George Willard Kirk, etc.


    I did find this by Wandrei:


    http://www.gutenberg.org/files/29389/29389-h/29389-h.htm


    However, much of his sf (not all, but a fair amount) would be among his weaker works.

    Thank you j.d.
    Yes, by "the gang" I meant exactly what HPL's considered "The gang", thus excluding for example Seabury Quinn.
    I had my hands on Wandrei's "Don't Dream" collection through my public library and enjoyed a couple of stories in it.
    I will then research the others and see what I come up to.

    Note: I noticed today that Rosebud magazine (available at my B&N) has a poetry piece by CAS. (Welcome to Rosebud Online)

    addendum: I also have Derleth's "Cthulhu Mythos" (B&N ed. ISBN 0760702535 ) and "Harrigan's File" collection for about $5.
