In 2018’s 21st-Century Horror: Weird Fiction at the Turn of the Millenium, literary scholar and critic, S.T. Joshi, includes an essay segment titled, “Clint Smith: Decaying Cities, Decaying Lives.” “Smith is gifted with a mellifluous, eloquent prose that avoids the contrasting pitfalls of self-conscious literariness and excessively austere starkness,” writes Joshi, “portraying his grim scenarios with intensity and cumulative power.”
Clint lives in Indiana, along with his wife and children, just outside Deacon’s Creek.
