The King in Yellow, Paperback / softback Book

The King in Yellow Paperback / softback

Part of the Tales of Mystery & the Supernatural series

Paperback / softback

Description

With an Introduction by David Stuart Davies. 'I read it and reread it, and wept and laughed and trembled with horror which at all times assails me yet'. With its strange, imaginative blend of horror, science fiction, romance and lyrical prose, Robert W.

Chambers' The King in Yellow is a classic masterpiece of weird fiction.

This series of vaguely connected stories is linked by the presence of a monstrous and suppressed book which brings fright, madness and spectral tragedy to all those who read it.

An air of futility and doom pervade these pages like a sweet insidious poison.

Dare you read it? This collection has been called the most important book in American supernatural fiction between Poe and the moderns.

H. P. Lovecraft, creator of the famed Cthulu mythos, whose own fiction was greatly influenced by this book stated that The King in Yellow 'achieves notable heights of cosmic fear'.
