The King in Yellow is a premier collection of horror fiction consisting of 10 short stories with similar styles or concepts shaped by early mythology. Half the tales highlight an infamous play that's rumored to invoke fear, paranoia and madness within its readers. The first four stories feature a "yellow" theme tied to the play, a specific symbol or supernatural force. "The Repairer of Reputations," "The Mask," "In the Court of the Dragon" and "The Yellow Sign" have a strong connection due to a shared motif and macabre tone. The book's other entries subvert expectations by shifting focus to less mythical topics like war and romance. Each setting varies with action occurring in either America or Europe. More than 100 years after its release, The King in Yellow is considered an essential work of horror fiction. Chambers' chilling prose and intricate world-building has made it a favorite among scholars and genre fans alike. Its reach spans multiple mediums including television and film, making it one of the most influential books of all-time. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of The King in Yellow is both modern and readable.

“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

“The King in Yellow”

A thin little book, but some rather weighty prose makes it feel longer than its page count. This is a collection of short stories, several of which orbit the theme that there is a book (called The King in Yellow)... More
