Description

Have you seen The Yellow Sign?

Recently referenced at length in the hit HBO series True Detective, The King In Yellow by Robert William Chambers has long been a cult favorite. The Carcosa Myth is an underground mythos which writers have been contributing to for more than 120 years: an interlocking set of stories, poems, and even a play about a fictional city called Carcosa, that can never quite be seen directly. Carcosa shows up first in a story by the American writer Ambrose Bierce, An Inhabitant of Carcosa, and is the central theme of the ten tales in The King in Yellow.

The first four stories -- The Repairer of Reputations, The Mask, In the Court of the Dragon and The Yellow Sign -- mention The King in Yellow, a forbidden play which induces despair or madness in those who read it.

The King in Yellow is a fin de si├Ęcle classic and has been described by critics such as E. F. Bleiler as a highly influential work in the field of the supernatural.
