    DescriptionThis massive collection brings together the entire body of Robert W. Chamber's Weird fiction works including material unprinted since the 1890's. Chamber's is considered a landmark author in the field of horror literature for his King in Yellow collection, which itself represents but a small portion of his weird fiction work. These stories are intimately connected with the Cthulhu Mythos introducing such manifestations as Hali, Carcosa, and Hastur. Short stories from The King in Yellow, The Maker of Moons, The Mystery of Choice, The Tracer of Lost Persons, The Tree of Heaven, and two complete books, In Search of the Unknown and Police!!! This book contains all the immortal tales of Robert W. Chambers, including "The Repairer of Reputations, " "The Yellow Sign, " and "The Mask." These titles are often found in survey anthologies. In addition to the six stories reprinted from The Yellow Sign (1895) this book also offers more than two dozen other stories and episodes, about 650 pages in all. These narratives rarely have appeared in pirnt. Some have not been published in nearly a century. This is a complete collection of Robert W. Chambers' short weird fiction--his published horror, science fiction, and fantasy / supernatural, as well as some self-conscious whimsy. The writing can be facile and out of fashion, of interest to collectors and those desiring to comprehend the writer. But other stories are as delicate and durable as those wrought by Lord Dunsany, and worthy of every reader's time. Stories are collected and edited by Lovecraftian Scholar S.T. Joshi.
