The King In Yellow cover

The King In Yellow anthology is, as the name suggests, a collection of stories and poetry inspired by the late-Victorian horror/mystery classic The King In Yellow by Robert W. Chambers, plus other aspects of the extended Hastur Mythos. Tackling the King in all his forms, it is A4 in format and spans 51 pages, and includes stories by Call of Cthulhu contributors John Goodrich and David Conyers. Published in 2007, it was edited by DJ Tyrer.

It is no longer available to order as it has been superceded by A Terrible Thing, which reproduces most of the prose content.
