5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Must-Have for Lovecraft fans 25 décembre 2004
Par J. W. Kennedy - Publié sur Amazon.com
HP Lovecraft was heavily inspired by Chambers' wierd tales from _The King in Yellow_. (He stole the name and vague concept of Hastur from it.) The frustrating thing about RW Chambers is that he COULD write very well, but for some reason he usually didn't. At his best he could weave an atmosphere of terrifying hallucinatory brilliance. At his worst he was hokey, sentimental, sappy, and tiresome. Half of his original _The King in Yellow_ consists of dopey romance stories that will infuriate the wierd fiction fan. Not so here. This Dover collection has only the best tales from _The King in Yellow_, as well as a number of other chilling morsels picked from Chambers' large body of later (mostly forgettable) work.

You should get hold of this collection just for "The Repairer of Reputations," which ranks as a superior masterpiece of surreal paranoid delirium. It's one of the top 5 wierd stories of all time, and actually BETTER than anything by Lovecraft.

Par Larry Dugan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Any collection of Robert W Chambers's "King in Yellow" stories is a rare and welcome gift, and the best of those stories--"The Yellow Sign," "The Repairer of Reputations," and "In the Court of the Dragon"--are included in this volume. Curiously, however, others are omitted in favor of tales that, though quite good, simply don't seem to be part of the KIY cycle. The missing stories, in this reviewer's opinion, are as follows: "The Prophet's Paradise," "The Street of the Four Winds," "The Street of the First Shell," "The Street of Our Lady of the Fields," and "Rue Barree." Had the current volume included these tales, I would have given it the highest possible marks. Still, it is an excellent collection that I highly recommend to anyone interested in the work of the inestimable and terribly underrated Robert W. Chambers.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Chambers Chills 23 novembre 2008
Par Ken Greenwald - Publié sur Amazon.com

Robert W. Chambers is an almost forgotten writer of fantasy and horror who should be honored for his originality and insights into human nature. To read the King In Yellow is to give Robert W. Chambers a chance to show how a well written psychological story can unfold. His stories build slowly and soon pull the reader into a world only Chambers could envision. To reveal any of his story plots here would do him an injustice.
The sad part of today's readership is that many no longer have the patience to move slowly and deeply through a story to it's climax. Everything must be swift and obvious these days. If you read Robert W. Chambers prepare for a time in another world that slowly sucks you into the unknown and often the terrifying. Grab an armchair, turn off the tv and the radio and quietly allow yourself to be absorbed by Chambers masterful writing. You will be delighted.

Par Patricia - Publié sur Amazon.com
I owned this book a long time ago -- and may buy myself another copy. The other reviews here give good opinions and recommend various stories and chapters in this book -- but do not seem to say what this book is ALL ABOUT. For those who have never heard of this classic, here is a summary of the book's plot. "The King In Yellow" is about a book, (called "The King In Yellow"), that drives people insane, or nearly insane, when they read it. The various chapters detail what happens to various people when they read this book.

It is a masterpiece, but must be read carefully and slowly. Do read it. Your patience will be rewarded!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The King in Yellow and Other Horror Stories 30 juin 2013
Par Blair Cordero - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Most people don't know, that H.P. Lovecraft & The Cthulhu Mythos were developed off a tradition earlier than the advent of Lovecraft's circle. Writers like Arthur Machen, Lord Dunsany, Algernon Blackwood, & Robert W. Chambers invented themes & atmospheres that would be replicated & embellished upon. The King In Yellow isn't actually one of the stories in this book; almost every story revolves around a book of this title. An accursed book of a play, that if one read all the way through, they would be driven mad & most likely die. The idea of a cursed book is prominent in most Cthulhu Mythos stories; especially the notorious NECRONOMICON.
