Last summer I was asked about the poems and short stories I’ve written that were inspired by Robert W. Chamber’s 1895 book of weird horror fiction, The King In Yellow, and came up with this list:
“Audience at Sunset” (poem, collaboration with Wilum Pugmire) in Spectral Realms
“Chamber of Shards” (poem) in Cyaegha
“In Her Hibernal Aspect” (story) in Cyaegha
“The Dying King” (story) in Cyaegha
“Caressa’s Song” (poem) in Spectral Realms
“The Cyprian’s Tale” (story) in Cyaegha
I expect to write more KIY pieces in the future. One of the things that fascinates me about Chamber’s King In Yellow Mythos is that it’s quite vague and undefined, which makes it wide open for endless variations and interpretations. It’s kind of a Rorschach test. You can make of it what you will.
