Back in print after too many years, this edition of THE KING IN YELLOW is a faithful reprinting of the original, unedited edition. Here are all the stories as they originally appeared. This collection is an important milestone in the history of weird literature providing not only the theme of the mysterious, lethal book but also being an important influence on H. P. Lovecraft. Robert W. Chambers would go on to become a successful romance novelist but it is for THE KING IN YELLOW that he is primarily remembered. The first stories in the collection revolve around the infamous play, "The King in Yellow", and the horror fate that befalls any foolish enough to read it. For sheer imaginative power, the first story, "The Repairer of Reputations", is hard to beat. Upon it's first publication, THE KING IN YELLOW created a sensation as nothing like it had been seen before. $4.95
This novel remains one of the most important in Machen's writings. A semi-autobiographical novel, it follows a young writer from his beginnings as the poor son of a minister in rural Wales to poverty and despair in an uncaring London. Throughout the book, the main character serves as Machen's stand in and has strange mystical experiences as he tries to escape into the Roman past. Several of the incidents mirror Machen's own life and provide valuable insight to his thoughts and influences. Far too long out of print, this edition of THE HILL OF DREAMS reprints the original text and is unedited. $5.95
