    One thought on “The King in Yellow”

    1. 5 Stars for the wonderful opening story The Repairer of Reputations although i wonder if wonderful is the correct word after all, this is a story that opens with a bizarre, sometimes dire alterna history leading up to a 1920s America where on lookers gather to contemplate terminally dispirited disportment within suicide abetting Lethal Chambers and after this bit of surprising strangeness, the reader is plunged right into the mind of a classic Unreliable Narrator the poor lad struck his head aft [...]

    3. Can art drive a person insane Could there be a book, or a film, or a piece of music that vibrates against the cortext in a certain way, or opens great gulfs of revelation so profound and so shattering that you could never be exposed to it without being changed forever If the truth of such a piece got out, wouldn t anyone and everyone want to be exposed to it, scoffing and thinking that they, above all else, would be well equipped to handle any dangers, and yet feeling inescapably drawn to find o [...]

    6. This is a hard book to give a rating.There are things that made me wanna stop the book than to continue But I stand firm and continue my path unfortunally the last two stories were too much for me I read and skipped several paragraphs at time because it was too damn boring without any purpose or interest But there are some cool stories.First of all, if you would like to try reading Robert W Chambers start with the first four short stories novellas These are the beginning of Weird Fiction as lat [...]

    9. Camilla You, sir, should unmask.Stranger Indeed Cassilda Indeed it s time We have all laid aside disguise but you.Stranger I wear no mask.Camilla Terrified, aside to Cassilda No mask No mask The King In YellowI came to this by way of the HBO show True Detective, which is pretty cool although not anywhere near as clever as it thinks it is, and which features references to the Yellow King and to a ruined city called Carcosa Robert Chambers was the first guy to write about the Yellow King, in the f [...]

    10. In 1986 Robert Chambers killed a young woman in Central Park in New York The media called Chambers the Preppie Killer.This Robert W Chambers is not the same guy Robert W Chambers died in 1933 and, as far as I know, didn t kill anyone Just so we re clear on that.The first four stories or so in this collection are loosely related, in that there s this connecting theme of a fictional drama called The King in Yellow Those who get their paws on it and read it wind up going crazy These stories are gre [...]

    11. This was an odd collection My version contained 10 stories of which only 5 had some correlation to The King in Yellow I could find no relevance to this theme in the remaining five stories I went into the book figuring all the stories would have some tie to the main concept but I suppose that was my own fault for presuming The interesting part about this idea of The King in Yellow is that those who read the book become madmen but you, the reader, never find out exactly what this book play contain [...]

    12. Tutto qui Ma iniziamo dal principio Leggo il primo racconto di questa antologia, Il riparatore di reputazioni , e lo trovo eccezionale Tanto simile ai migliori scritti di Lovecraft, di cui ne precursore e ispiratore, e a quel punto credo di aver capito anche il perch Il magnificamente grottesco signor Wilde, il tratteggio cupo che definisce ogni singolo componente di questa storia, non ultimo il Re Giallo un volume che basta solo nominare per sentir sprigionare follia e malignit dalle pagine Tan [...]

    14. I read this book because I saw an article that mentioned it as a source material for the HBO series True Detective And yes there are parts that might have been pulled from this book, but they aren t the only source for the show I found this book pretty interesting from a historical perspective because it was very influential to many horror authors who came afterwards, very specifically HP Lovecraft Now I ve always loved HP Lovecraft and i could see where he might have found inspiration in The Ki [...]

    15. A classic of proto weird, bearing all the marks of decadent era during which it was conceived ie 1895 Chambers was likely exposed to the currents of fin de siecle writing when studying in Paris a couple years before , at turns uncanny and voluptuous Borrows some names from Ambrose Bierce, lends some themes, much later, to H.P Lovecraft Opening story The Repairer of Reputations is justifiably the most noted here for its projected dystopian 1920s, creeping unease, and rather spectacularly unreliab [...]

FTC DISCLOSURE I am the publisher of this book.Are you a fan of the hit HBO show True Detective I sure am And after finally checking out the real 1895 horror collection that this show s Satanic mythos is based around, Robert W Chambers 1895 The King in Yellow, and especially after being disappointed at all the crappy, sloppily done editions currently for sale at , I decided that my arts center could do better and thus volume one of our new CCLaP Victoriana series, in which we present gorgeously [...]

    17. When I re read Ambrose Bierce sAn Inhabitant of Carcosa in February, I decided to finally revisit The King in Yellow after trying to get into it several months back and never managing to gain enough enthusiasm for it Now the situation was completely different.The first story, The Repairer of Reputations, is a great introduction to Chambers s universe It starts as a sci fi story of sorts, but then it slowly makes you question everything you ve read previously In The Mask, an unusual scientific di [...]

    18. The term weird fiction could have been coined to describe The King in Yellow First published in 1895, and soon to be reissued in a deluxe gift edition by Pushkin Press, it features elements of horror and the supernatural and even a touch of science fiction and yet fits uncomfortably under any of these categories It is frankly, just plain weird The book consists of four short stories which are linked some common characters and, importantly, by a recurring leitmotiv, a mysterious play called The [...]

    20. I read this short volume of interrelated stories some time ago, but wanted to go over it again before I rated or reviewed it The book is built around the existence of a fictional play, The King in Yellow In the opening story, The Repairer of Reputations which can be seen not only as horror but also as a sort of alternate history, though in it s own time of writing it was placed 25 years in the future , we are told that the book is universally reviled, condemned, and censored It apparently attack [...]
