4.0 out of 5 stars casting back, June 12, 2002
This review is from: The King in Yellow (Paperback)
The King In Yellow is not what I expected; the horror more subtle, the portraits of old Paris more sensitive, and neither set of stories particularly worn for their age.

It is clear to see the connection between the first and the contributions of Lovecraft and King, but I wonder particularly about the inspiration behind one of the latter, "The Prophets' Paradise", and who may have picked up _that_ thread of literature in the intervening years.
