Description
There was once a play with the power to drive the reader mad… or to transport him into a bizarre world of Carcosa, and the King in Yellow. Banned, burned, yet never totally destroyed, the play lives on, eating away the fabric of society and rotting the veneer of civilization… A new anthology of stories set in the King in Yellow Mythos of Robert W. Chambers. His tales are linked together by three main plot devices: - A mysterious and cursed play in book form, banned since its release, called ‘The King in Yellow.’ - A supernatural entity mentioned in the play also called ‘The King in Yellow.’ - A mysterious symbol called ‘The Yellow Sign’ which is connected with the play and the King in Yellow. Those that read the play often end up insane or possessed by evil. Many suffer their minds being blasted by the horrible tale the play reveals, or haunted and hunted to death by the play’s monstrous avatars. Those that find the Yellow Sign suffer just as terribly as those that read the play. The Court of the Yellow King brings together some of the best authors in the genre with their own special madness to new interpretations of the King in Yellow.
