    The King in Yellow is a collection of short stories - mysterious, macabre, and endearing by turns. The work has been linked to H. P. Lovecraft, with the titular entity forming a part of the extended Cthulhu mythos. The first three stories are darkly suspenseful and linked by the mysterious Yellow Sign and the malevolent King in Yellow. These will please Lovecraft fans most of all, and the ghost stories will not disappoint. Also included in this collection are a war story and a strange romance, both of which intrigue and entertain.

    This collection by Robert W. Chambers was first published in 1895 and features stories loosely tied together with one theme, the supernatural. Many of the stories in The King in Yellow were not received well by the critics of the time due to their supernatural undertones. Some of the stories mention a play by the same name that had been outlawed in some regions of the world. It was thought that the play could induce madness in those who viewed it. Two of the stories in this book take place in a fictional world of the future 1920s and are macabre in tone.

The stories also suggest that the original creator of the sign was not human and possibly came from a strange alternate dimension that contains an ominous and ancient city known as Carcosa. The finder of the sign gives it as a gift to her future lover with disasterous results!
