Why So Little Zothique?

Why has Clark Ashton Smith had so little influence on gaming?  Grognardia, to which I have recently become addicted, has some good thoughts on this.

(Interestingly enough, I took this photograph, along with some others of Smith’s sculptures that may be found on some CAS sites, while visiting the house of Smith’s old friend Bob Elder, in Auburn, California.  I shared my shots with Ron Hilger and some of the other keepers of Smith’s legacy.)
