"I was turning to go into the dining-room when my eye fell upon a book bound in serpent skin, standing in a corner of the top shelf of the last bookcase." —Robert W. Chambers, "The Yellow Sign"
The King in Yellow. Robert W. Chambers’ unearthly book has inspired millions of shivering readers since the death of the Gilded Age. This beautiful edition brings new potency to its stories of madness and romance.

Author Kenneth Hite annotates every tale with his uniquely macabre erudition. His insights bring ever-deeper understanding of truths that only the mad or the hopeless would seek.

"Night fell and the hours dragged on, but still we murmured to each other of the King and the Pallid Mask, and midnight sounded from the misty spires in the fog-wrapped city. We spoke of Hastur and of Cassilda, while outside the fog rolled against the blank window-panes as the cloud waves roll and break on the shores of Hali." —Robert W. Chambers, "The Yellow Sign"
