The Abominations of Yondo is a collection of fantasy, horror and sf short stories by author Clark Ashton Smith. It was the author's fourth collection of stories published by Arkham House, released in an edition of 2,005 copies. The stories were mostly written between 1930 and 1935.
The collection contains stories from Smith's major story cycles of Hyperborea, Poseidonis, Averoigne and Zothique.
The title story is told by a man who has been released from being tortured by the priests of the lion-headed god Ong, and who tries to make his way to safety through the desert of Yondo, but is so perturbed by the horrors he encounters that he flees back to the realm of the torturers.
Although there is a scuffed area on the front right upper corner of the cover where an adhesive label has been removed, there is a bookseller's label on the lower, left corner of the rear cover, very slight bumps to edges and corners, also text block edges are moderately toned and a little foxed, all text is clear on clean pages and the rest of the illustrated cover remains striking and colourful.
