Born in Brooklyn in 1865, Robert W. Chambers was a Paris-educated writer with dozens of novels and short story collections to his credit. Although he dabbled in many genres of fiction during his life—finding his greatest contemporary success in romantic fiction—Chambers is best remembered for his supernatural stories, particularly The King in Yellow. For his weird tales, Chambers took some names from Ambrose Bierce, and his own stories were later mined by H. P. Lovecraft and the pulp magazine writers of his circle. Such usage has kept "The King in Yellow", if not alive, then at least in the awareness of readers of the fantasy and horror genre.
