THIS EDITION CAREFULLY SELECTS ITS PAGES FROM the volumes The Maker of Moons (1896) and The Mystery of Choice (1897), expanding the set of four tales that spin together the tragedy in The King in Yellow (1895). […] Carcosa, homeland of the King in Yellow, is inspired by Ambrose Bierce’s dream story, but there is another rhyme between An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge and “The Key to Grief ”,in my opinion, the best of the stories gathered here, in which the last words of the wild annihilated by the North American white-man resound loudly.
And even more are Chambers’ creations that draw on the tradition of Bierce, whenever the fortune of the man out in the green turns into a disturbed experience, and the bourgeois spirit becomes entangled in the thorns of the curse spitted by the defeated people from History, over the dream of the daredevils.
