The King in Yellow is a book of short stories by American writer Robert Chambers. The first half of the book features highly esteemed weird stories, and the book is described by S.T. Joshi as a classic in the field of the supernatural. There are ten 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. These stories are macabre in tone, centering, in keeping with the other tales, on characters that are often artists or decadents. The first and fourth stories, "The Repairer of Reputations" and "The Yellow Sign", are set in an imagined future 1920s America, whereas the second and third stories, "The Mask" and "In the Court of the Dragon", are set in Paris. These stories are haunted by the theme: "Have you found the Yellow Sign?" The weird and macabre character gradually fades away during the remaining stories, and the last three are written in the romantic fiction style common to Chambers' later work. They are all linked to the preceding stories by their Parisian setting and artistic protagonists.

Chambers exquisitely colors each scene, each action, each thought with the measured care of a master painter driven mad with ecstatic love. In this installment he makes no mention of the dreaded document, The King in Yellow, but he really doesn’t need to. By now the reader has been drawn into the unspoken nightmare of its spell – trapped like some helpless prehistoric beast sinking slowly to ia suffocating death in a tar-pit of elegantly phrased insanity. Will love prevail for our hero?

Klein as a classic in the field of the supernatural.There are ten 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. "The Yellow Sign" inspired a film of the same name released in 2001. The first four stories are loosely connected by three main devices: A play in book form entitled The King in Yellow A mysterious and malevolent supernatural entity known as the King in Yellow An eerie symbol called the Yellow Sign These stories are macabre in tone, centering, in keeping with the other tales, on characters that are often artists or decadents, inhabitants of the demi-monde. The first and fourth stories, "The Repairer of Reputations" and "The Yellow Sign," are set in an imagined future 1920s America, whereas the second and third stories, "The Mask" and "In the Court of the Dragon," are set in Paris.

They are all linked to the preceding stories by their Parisian setting and their artistic protagonists...... Robert William Chambers (May 26, 1865 - December 16, 1933) was an American artist and fiction writer, best known for his book of short stories entitled The King in Yellow, published in 1895.He was born in Brooklyn, New York, to William P. Chambers (1827-1911), a corporate and bankruptcy lawyer, and Caroline Smith Boughton (1842-1913). His parents met when Caroline was twelve years old and William P. was interning with her father, Joseph Boughton, a prominent corporate lawyer. Eventually the two formed the law firm of Chambers and Boughton which continued to prosper even after Joseph's death in 1861. Robert's great-grandfather, William Chambers (birth unknown), a lieutenant in the British Royal Navy, was married to Amelia Saunders, (1765-1822), the great grand daughter of Tobias Saunders, of Westerly, Rhode Island. The couple moved from Westerly, to Greenfield, Massachusetts and then to Galway, New York, where their son, also William Chambers, (1798-1874) was born. The second William graduated from Union College at the age of 18, and then went to a college in Boston, where he studied to be a doctor. Upon graduating, he and his wife, Eliza P. Allen (1793-1880), a direct descendant of Roger Williams, the founder of Providence, Rhode Island were among the first settlers of Broadalbin, New York. His brother was architect Walter Boughton Chambers. Robert was first educated at the Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute, and then entered the Art Students' League at around the age of twenty, where the artist Charles Dana Gibson was his fellow student. Chambers studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, and at Academie Julian, in Paris from 1886 to 1893, and his work was displayed at the Salon as early as 1889. On his return to New York, he succeeded in selling his illustrations to Life, Truth, and Vogue magazines. Then, for reasons unclear, he devoted his time to writing, producing his first novel, In the Quarter (written in 1887 in Munich). His most famous, and perhaps most meritorious, effort is The King in Yellow, a collection of Art Nouveau short stories published in 1895..............

Novelle - Library of Experimentalism presents: "Robert W. Chambers' King in Yellow stories are among the few and most laudable eruptions by an American of the Decadent movement that flourished in England during the 1890s. One laments there were not more of such works." Thomas Ligotti - author of "Teatro Grottesco" THE KING IN YELLOW is a work of supernatural fiction that has influenced much and many, from Lovecraft to Nic Pizzolatto's True Detective. First published in 1895, the book is a collection of short stories: but of the ten stories included, only four actually revolve around THE KING IN YELLOW, that unearthly play which is "the very supreme essence of art," and whose second act undoes the minds of its readers. The present collection features only these essential four stories, the original source for all subsequent tales about THE KING IN YELLOW: the core of this fascinating and undying myth that Robert W. Chambers has brought into being more than a hundred years ago. "This is the thing that troubles me, for I cannot forget Carcosa where black stars hang in the heavens; where the shadows of men's thoughts lengthen in the afternoon, when the twin suns sink into the lake of Hali; and my mind will bear for ever the memory of the Pallid Mask."
