Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

This Wordsworth Edition includes an exclusive Introduction by David Stuart Davies.

‘… I read it and reread it, and wept and laughed and trembled with horror which at all times assails me yet.’

With its strange, imaginative blend of horror, science fiction, romance and lyrical prose, Robert W. Chambers' The King in Yellow is a classic masterpiece of weird fiction. This series of vaguely connected stories is linked by the presence of a monstrous and suppressed book which brings fright, madness and spectral tragedy to all those who read it. An air of futility and doom pervade these pages like a sweet insidious poison. Dare you read it?

This collection has been called the most important book in American supernatural fiction between Poe and the moderns. H. P. Lovecraft, creator of the famed Cthulu mythos, whose own fiction was greatly influenced by this book stated that The King in Yellow ‘achieves notable heights of cosmic fear’.

Biographie de l'auteur

Robert William Chambers was born on May 26, 1865. He was an American artist and fiction writer. He was one of the more prolific and popular American authors of late nineteenth and twentieth century. After graduating from Yale, Robert Chambers studied art for seven years at The Academie Julian in Paris. By the time he was in his mid-twenties, Chambers was exhibiting his art at salons in Paris. Returning to America in 1893, Chambers soon began drawing illustrations for magazines like Vogue, Life and True. It was during this period that Chambers and his friend, Charles Dana Gibson submitted sketches they had drawn of each other to Life magazine. Chamber’s sketch of Gibson was published, Gibson’s sketch was rejected. In 1912 Gibson provided the illustrations in Chamber’s book ‘Blue-Bird Weather’. Chambers originally began submitting articles, accompanied with his illustrations to magazines and newspapers before concentrating on writing full time. Over the next forty years or so, he would publish 72 novels, numerous short stories and several plays. Chamber’s early writings would cover such diverse subject matters as the supernatural and historical romances. Robert William Chambers died in New York City on December 16, 1933. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Je croyais que c'était une création de H.P.Lovecraft. Au moins, je comprends maintenant mieux les délires de "Trues détectives".Nouvelles délirantes.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Bizarre and Mysterious Reprinting of Chambers' Original Mystery Series. 19 janvier 2017
Par Dennis A. Turner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is a very frustrating reprint of "The King in Yellow", Robert W Chambers' horror short stories. It appears that this book was quickly assembled by scanning a printing of the original 1895 book. The original was 4 3/8 inches x 8 1/8 inches but it is reprinted on 8 x 10 inch paper.. The original text of nearly 300 pages is redone an approximately half that number of pages. The cover and table of contents of the current volume are given as photocopies of the original, However, the inner pages are apparently scanned from the original using a program that converts the scanned images into word processor text, and the text was spread out over the entire 8 x 10 inch new paper. Not a bad idea, in concept as a way to capture the original, but it was not done properly. The problem is that such programs often do not convert the scanned image into correct words and letters. The new text needs to be proofed, and corrected. This was clearly NOT done. The result is a host very badly spelled (even incomprehensible) words and grammatical atrocities. For example, a double quotation mark may come out as a pair of exclamation points. Letters are converted incorrectly (an "a" becomes an "o"; a "d" becomes "cl") The scanning also picked up the original book's page headings (the book's title, "The King in Yellow" and the titles of the various short stories, such as: "The Mask") and inserts them seemingly randomly in the reprinted text. So one finds paragraphs and conversations with seemingly random inserts of "THE KIN GIN YELLOW" , or "THEM ASK" The original apparently also had super illuminated first letters at the beginnings of chapters and these are inserted randomly in the reprinted text. There are occasional large blank spaces where the original probably had blank pages between chapters, but these fill only portions of the new pages with chapters starting midway along the pages. There are no page number in the new text and the table of contents (copied form the original) is useless to find anything.. It CAN actually be entertaining to try and figure out what is going on. And it CAN be a bit of a game to figure out what the text is actually supposed to be saying and why random numbers and punctuation marks appear where they do. But, if one is actually trying to simply READ this book, it's a frustration. There is no traditional initial page with publication information, no Library of Congress info (It's apparently bar scanned on the last page) and the only information about the current book is on the last page saying "Made in the USA/ San Bernardino CA/21 December 2016". I got my copy only a couple weeks later. It's a bizarre book, but right in keeping with the bizarre content of Robert W. Chanbers original stories. It's as if there is a contemporary mystery to be solved, harking back to the mysteries laid out in the original stories.. And one had better beware! Or it's simply a rapidly and cheaply printed (I can't say "published") rip-off.

This edition has an introduction with a biography of "Robert Chambers" (1802-1871), a completely different guy from "Robert W Chambers" (1865-1933) who actually wrote this book. What kind of high school copy/paste plagiarism B.S. is this?

Who knows whether the rest of this book has anything to do with the actual "King in Yellow"?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Charming 28 mars 2014
Par A. McCrea - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is a book far ahead of its time. Written and published in the 19th century, it combines fantasy, science fiction and narrative devices such as misdirection, unreliable narrators and the like, even what we would now call "metafiction." In addition to being fascinating as an historical document it's a great book on it's own. It is not a novel, exactly, but a series of interrelated stories, though the tone is such that it reads somewhat like a unitary work. To repeat myself, it's fascinating, on many levels. Highly recommended.

this copy (The blue covered one) is incomplete! it left out "The Prophets' Paradise" which ties in details for one of the other stories. It's a shame, the book overall is good but disappointed they left out one of the stories.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Worth having just for the "Repairer" story 11 juillet 2014
Par jwoodard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The first works in the anthology have a very unique creepy quality about them, but are not as well developed as the stories of Edgar Allen Poe which they resemble. They remind me of really good psychological thrillers of modern cinema. One wonders if the characters might actually be insane, but, even when the story is over, they still leave you thinking. The biggest problem with the work is the juxtaposition of the various stories. The "Repairer of Reputations" is the pinnacle, but "The Mask" ends in such a way that it takes away from the macabre nature of the stories around it. "The Court of the Dragon" brings the creepy back in but "The Yellow Sign" left me unaffected in comparison to "Repairer." The set of poems that Chambers places in the middle of the prose do not have anywhere near the quality or timelessness of the first few stories. The last stories are incredibly slow, uneventful, and boring compared to the taut thrillers that open the book. The low price of the book makes it worth owning just for the first few entries, but the others leave me feeling disappointed, especially because I read the whole thing all at once. The "Repairer" left me hooked and wanting more, but the book never delivered.
