The King in Yellow



L argely forgotten, this collection of short stories by Robert Chambers (1895) began with four tales bound together by their relation to a mysterious book (called 'The King in Yellow') with a sinister reputation

The rest of the stories are more of Chamber's stock romances.

  • The Repairer of Reputations
  • The Mask
  • In the Court of the Dragon
  • The Yellow Sign
