In Collected Stories, these volumes are combined with a wealth of unpublished and uncollected work, ranging from his first his story published in `Weird Tales when William was seventeen, to his later frank homosexual fantasies.Williams was famous for insisting he write every morning. Even during his darkest days, while mourning a lover, or abusing some substance - he would write.
