Publisher Description

This eBook contains four books by American writer Rober W. Chambers: The King in Yellow, The Maker of Moons, The Mystery of Choice and The Tree of Heaven. 


‘The King in Yellow’ is a book of short stories first published in 1895. E. F. Bleiler described it as one of the most important works of American supernatural fiction. There are ten stories, the first four of which, "The Repairer of Reputations", "The Mask", "In the Court of the Dragon" and "The Yellow Sign", mention The King in Yellow, a forbidden play that induces despair or madness in those who read it.


‘The Maker of Moons’ is a short story collection published in 1896, which followed the publication of Chambers most famous work, The King in Yellow. It contained eight new stories, including the title story "The Maker of Moons", one of his finest weird tales, and several romantic Art Nouveau stories, concluding with two less distinguished weird tales. The latter were subsequently incorporated into the episodic novel ‘In Search of the Unknown.’ 



‘The Mystery of Choice’ is a short story collection published in 1897. Distinguished by an atmospheric use of natural scenery, the stories are mostly set in Breton in France.


The Tree of Heaven’ is a short story collection published in 1907. Mostly set in New York with a snowy nocturnal backdrop, the stories are light and humorous romantic tales, several of which feature the weird.
