13 Tales of Horror Defining Hastur, the King in Yellow, Yuggoth, and the Dread City of Carcosa

SECOND EDITION The stories in this book evoke a tracery of evil rarely rivaled in horror writing. They represent the entire evolving trajectory of such concepts as Hastur, the King in Yellow, Carcosa, the Yellow Sign, the Black Stone, Yuggoth, and the Lake of Hali. A succession of writers from Ambrose Bierce to Ramsey Campbell, to Karl Edward Wagner have explored and embellished these concepts so that the sum of the tales has become an evocative tapestry of hypnotic dread and terror, a mythology distinct from yet overlapping the Cthulhu Mythos.

This trade paperback collects all of the important tales concerning He-Who-Should-Not-Be-Named. Drawn from H.P. Lovecraft and other authors, these are the original stories upon which Call of Cthulhu is based. The second edition of this book, includes updated intros by Robert Price, as well as Joseph Payne Brennen's "The Feaster from Afar", a story originally printed in the First Edition of Disciples of Cthulhu, but not included in the Chaosium edition.

Robert M. Price ed.; Illustrated by Earl Geier; Cover by H. E. Fassl. 320 pages, illustrated.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
