I cannot forget Carcosa where black stars hang in the heavens; where the shadows of men's thoughts lengthen in the afternoon... I pray God will curse the writer, as the writer has cursed the world with this beautiful, stupendous creation, terrible in its simplicity, irresistible in its truth - a world which now trembles before the King in Yellow. The weird tales in this slim volume are all linked by a play, the second act of which reveals truths so terrible and beautiful that it drives all who read it to despair: The King in Yellow. These four macabre, uncanny and unsettling stories are some of the most thrilling ever written in the field of weird fiction, and since their first publication in 1895 have become a cult classic, influencing many writers from the renowned master of cosmic horror H.P Lovecraft to the creators of HBO's True Detective. Contains: 'The Repairer of Reputations', 'The Mask', 'In the Court of the Dragon', 'The Yellow Sign'

“One of my favourite books of all time.”

Written in 1895 the King in Yellow stands the test of time with themes topical even today. I've often described the King in Yellow as 'Beautifully Bleak' as it lulls the reader along with its romantic... More
