Sinopsis: "The King in Yellow, a series of vaguely connected short stories having as a background a monstrous and suppressed book whose perusal brings fright, madness, and spectral tragedy, really achieves notable heights of cosmic fear in spite of uneven interest and a somewhat trivial and affected cultivation of the Gallic studio atmosphere made popular by Du Maurier's Trilby. The most powerful of its tales, perhaps, is The Yellow Sign, in which is introduced a silent and terrible churchyard watchman with a face like a puffy grave-worm's." - from the Introduction by H.P. Lovecraft.

Biografía del autor: Robert W. Chambers (May 26, 1865 ? December 16, 1933) was a Brooklyn-born artist and direct descendant of Roger Williams, the founder of Providence, Rhode Island. First educated at the Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute in the visual arts, then at the Art Students? League, Chambers was at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris in the 1880s, before moving back to New York and embarking on a new literary career in 1887. Although one of his first books, The King in Yellow remained one of his most popular throughout his prolific career, which spanned not only Weird Lit but romances, war stories, and historical fiction, eventually becoming one of the more commercially successful writers of his generation.
