"Very genuine is the strain of horror in the early work of Robert W. Chambers. THE KING IN YELLOW, a series of vaguely connected short stories having as a background a monstrous and suppressed book whose perusal brings fright, madness, and spectral tragedy, really achieves notable heights of cosmic fear.”
Robert W. Chambers’ powerful story, The King in Yellow, has influenced numerous writers in the supernatural fiction world.
First published in 1895, The King in Yellow is a mystery to this day. Within its pages is a play, only whispered about, that tempts and infuriates; it is said readers go mad trying to finish it. The short stories in the book connect, interweave and include elements of this curious play, leaving the reader with just a glimpse of the madness that exists within the King in Yellow.
