Global Publishers

Indisponible
The King in Yellow is a book of short stories by the American writer Robert W.
Chambers, first published by F. Tennyson Neely in 1895. The book is named for
the 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 horror
stories, and the book has been described by critics such as E. F. Bleiler and
T. E. D. Klein as a classic in the field of the supernatural. Lin Carter
called it "an absolute masterpiece, probably the single greatest book of weird
fantasy written in this country between the death of Poe and the rise of
Lovecraft". There are 10 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.
