The King in Yellow: a play that brings madness to all who read it. Irresistible and insidious, it lures 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. Culbard's deft and unsettling adaptation (newly reissued in a smaller format, with a foreword by Dan Abnett and a new cover) breathes life into Chambers' influential masterpiece, expertly revealing the malice and mayhem that await those unlucky enough to turn the wrong page.
Â "Clean lines, bold colours, and characters that wriggle right into the readers' brain are Culbard's trademark."
