The Demoiselle D'ys, An Excerpt From the King in Yellow
The Magical Antiquarian Curiosity ShoppeeBook - 2012
Master of modern occultism, Lon Milo DuQuette, (author of Enochian Vision Magick and The Magick of Aleister Crowley) introduces the newest Weiser Books Collection-The Magical Antiquarian Curiosity Shoppe. Culled from material long unavailable to the general public, DuQuette curates this essential new digital library with the eye of a scholar and the insight of an initiate. Robert W. Chamber's most hauntingly romantic tale from his collection of horror. From the intro:The most achingly beautiful and romantic of all the vignettes of The King in Yellow. Chambers exquisitely colors each scene, each action, each thought with the measured care of a master painter driven mad with ecstatic love. In this installment he makes no mention of the dreaded document, The King in Yellow, but he really doesn't need to. By now the reader has been drawn into the unspoken nightmare of its spell - trapped like some helpless prehistoric beast sinking slowly to a suffocating death in a tar-pit of elegantly phrased insanity. Will love prevail for our hero?
