Chambers, Robert W.: Strange Visions ~ Omnibus of Weird Tales. v1. 01 Sep 2018

STRANGE VISIONS: An Omnibus of Weird Tales by Robert W. Chambers (1865–1933)
With comments by H. P. Lovecraft (1890–1937) (see appendix)

The contents of this book were first published 1895 ~ 1920. Text is in the public domain in countries where the copyright term is “Life+80”or less, and in the USA.

The shadows lengthen …… In Carcosa.

Ranging from horror and the macabre to eerie eldritch fantasy to satiric expeditions into the unbelievable, expertly woven with threads of poetically beautiful description, the supernatural writings of Robert W. Chambers will pique your imagination.

This omnibus presents all eight books of Chambers’ weird fiction. Included are:
the collections The King in Yellow (his masterpiece and one of the defining works of American horror), The Maker of Moons, The Mystery of Choice, The Tree of Heaven, and Police!!!; the humorous episodic “novels” In Search of the Unknown and The Tracer of Lost Persons; and his final venture into the supernatural, the novel The Slayer of Souls.

Robert William Chambers (May 26, 1865 – December 16, 1933) was an American artist and fiction writer, best known for his book of short stories entitled The King in Yellow, published in 1895. Primarily due to that book, Chambers is credited as a major influence on many fantasy and horror writers, such as H.P. Lovecraft, Karl Edward Wagner, Lin Carter, James Blish, and others. More recently, the HBO television series “True Detective” drew upon the mythology of The King in Yellow.

Although he wrote a number of fantastic stories early in his career, he turned entirely to writing historical, adventure, and romance novels. Author of nearly 100 books, Chambers was one of the most successful and popular writers of his period, his later novels selling well and a handful achieving best-seller status. Some of his novels were adapted for film.

This is my own compilation. Texts were obtained from Project Gutenberg and the Internet Archive.

OCR and typesetting errors were silently corrected; punctuation, diacritics, and italics formatted. For consistency, hyphenation and punctuation were normalized; and some spelling Americanized or normalized. (Version with original typography and “mixed” spelling is also available.)

I was inspired to make this book after listening to the Librivox recording of The King in Yellow by the wonderful Peter Yearsley (give him a listen sometime).
Enjoy the thrills and chills!
