The King in Yellow – Origins, Influences and Lineages

by | Feb 12, 2020 | Convention Panel

A special discussion on the work of Robert Chanbers, drawing from Ken Hites’s research for his new annotation of The King in Yellow. Where did black stars rise before they hung over Carcosa? What inspired the King in Yellow, whom emperors have served? Whither syphillis? Robert W. Chambers’ “The King in Yellow” has inspired horror authors from Lovecraft to the present darkening day. Kenneth Hite, annotator of Arc Dream Publishing’s new “The King in Yellow: Annotated Edition,” dives deep into the cloud-waves of Hali for the origins, evolution, and influence of Chambers’ haunting tales.
