Between Edgar Allan Poe and modern writers the most important writer of horror stories was Robert W. Chambers. "The King in Yellow", as the books cover write-up says, is almost legendary. Chambers attempts to evoke the "horror of the nameless and the unimaginable" were a great influence on the likes of H. P. Lovecraft, A. Merritt, and R. E. Howard. "The King in Yellow" is considered by many experts in the field of horror to be one of the "most chillingly imaginative books in the genre".

Included in this fine anthology are:
- The Yellow Sign
- The Repairer of Reputations
- The Demoiselle d'Ys
- The Mask
- In the Court of the Dragon
- The Maker of Moons
- A Pleasant Evening
- The Messenger
- The Key to Grief
- The Harbor-Master
- In quest of the Dingue
- Is the Ux Extinct?

Leave the night light on after reading these!.
