Yellow symbolizes decadence in literature, and has since long before both Giallo and The Yellow Book. Robert W. Chambers explored this decadence in his collection The King in Yellow, as did Charlotte Perkins Gilman in her weird tale "The Yellow Wallpaper." And now, DJ Tyrer fuses the supernatural and psychological hauntings of Chambers and Gilman in THE YELLOW HOUSE, a Gothic manor chiller with nods to Sheridan Le Fanu, Shirley Jackson, and V. C. Andrews. THE YELLOW HOUSE begins with awakening ...more

Those stories inspired subsequent writers. One of those, Karl Edward

This is how it should be done! Only 43 pages but leaves you wanting more. DJ Tyrer does a fantastic job with this story. I rank this up there with Karl Edward Wagner's "The Rivers of Nights Dreaming" and James Blish's "More Light". I see a shadow of Shirley Jackson's "The Haunting of Hill House" in bits throughout. Robert W. Chambers would be proud to see his legacy handed down to such a gifted writer. The obvious tone of sexuality that flows in some chapters, gives it just the right effect that ...more
