Description

A beautiful gift edition of this cult classic of supernatural fiction, out in time for Halloween and ChristmasThe four uncanny and terrifying tales contained between these covers are all linked by their reference to a certain notorious play, a cursed, forbidden play that has spread like a contagion across the world, a play in which the second act reveals truths so terrible, and ??so beautiful, that it drives all who read it to lunatic despair: ??The King in Yellow.These stories are some of the most thrilling ever written in the field of weird fiction. Since their first publication in 1895 they have become cult classics, influencing many writers from the renowned master of cosmic horror H. P. Lovecraft to the creators of HBO's True Detective.Robert W. Chambers (1865-1933) was an American author and artist. He was a prolific writer and enjoyed great success during his lifetime, with an output ranging from romance to science fiction. However, it is principally for the weird stories contained in The King in Yellow, which are regarded as some of the most important works of American supernatural fiction, that he is remembered today.
