Summary
The King in Yellow: a play that brings madness to all who read it. Irresistible and insidious, it lurs the reader with its innocence and dooms them with its corruption. In a series of interlinked stories, Robert W. Chambers' classic work of weird fiction shows the creeping spread of the play's macabre touch. I.N.J. Cubard's deft and unsettling adaptation breathes new life into Chambers' influential materpieces, expertly revealing the malice and mayhem that await those unlicky enough to turn the wrong page
Summary
A collection of strange, macabre short stories, originally published in 1895, are linked together by mention of a fictional, forbidden play which reveals truths so terrible it makes all those who read it go mad
