De Casseres was a journalist and film and theatre critic who was friends with Don Marquis (who wrote the preface for the 1923 illustrated edition of this, his first book). He was also a correspondent with Clarke Ashton Smith, his style and subject matter is very much akin to the works of Smith and Lovecraft who came later.
