Robert W Chambers.
A milestone of American supernatural fiction, The King in Yellow created
a sensation upon its 1895 publication. Since then, it has markedly
influenced writers in the genre, most famously, H. P. Lovecraft. Author
Robert W. Chambers has been hailed as a writer of remarkable imaginative
powers and the historic link between Edgar Allan Poe and Stephen King.
This edition features the original 10 gripping stories. The book is
named after a fictional play with the same title which recurs as a motif
through some of the stories. The first half of the book features highly
esteemed weird stories, and the book is described by S.T. Joshi as a
classic in the field of the supernatural. There are ten stories, the
first four of which, "The Repairer of Reputations", "The Mask", "In the
Court of the Dragon" and "The Yellow Sign", mention The King in Yellow, a
forbidden play which induces despair or madness in those who read it.
