Images out of the Sky is an anthology of poetry prepared by Tevis Clyde Smith, Robert E. Howard, and Lenore Preece. The Christopher Publishing House was interested in publishing the anthology, but wanted the authors to help pay the costs of production. The offer was declined. This issue contains the typescripts of the REH portion of the anthology.

The poems that follow the title page are facsimile copies of Howard’s contributed typescripts.
The letter to Clyde Smith accompanied the return of the Images Out of the Sky poetry from the publisher.
Images on the covers are facsimiles of the front and back of the envelope that the letter to Clyde Smith and the pages from Images Out of the Sky were shipped in.
