HAVE YOU FOUND THE YELLOW SIGN? First published in 1895 by F. Tennyson Neely, The King in Yellow by Robert W. Chambers stands as one of the earliest examples of weird fiction in American literature, influencing future generations of writers including H.P. Lovecraft, Clark Ashton Smith, and Karl Edward Wagner. This new edition preserves the original text of all ten stories as they were originally published in 1895. Contained in this volume are stories of madness, obsession, despair, and the macabre, fueled by an outlawed play known as "The King in Yellow." Complimenting the text is a new introduction by Joseph S. Pulver, Sr., with interior illustrations by Luke Spooner. Fans of The King in Yellow will enjoy this new presentation of familiar material, while newcomers to the world of weird fiction will be entranced by the eerie legacy of Chambers' achievement. Prepare yourself, reader. Carcosa awaits.
