Whilst Joe Pulver approached S. T. Joshi approximately doing an anthology like his now-famous tome Black Wings, just for Robert Chambers' King in Yellow, Joshi had just one factor to say:
"You do it, Joe."
So he did.
And right here it's: A Season In Carcosa.
H.P. Lovecraft. Karl Edgar Wagner. Peter Straub. these are many of the names that stand tall in our style and in terms of Robert W. Chambers and his King in Yellow they agree, Chambers' beguiling stories of the King In Yellow and Carcosa are probably the greatest in "weird" fiction. Miskatonic River Press and Joseph S. Pulver, Sr. are proud and thrilled to offer an anthology of all new stories encouraged by means of Chambers.

Uther was old and sick, yet the kingdom's safety depended on his bloated body and on his slow, sad mind. He had been vigorous only six months before, but then had come the news of his heir's death. Mordred, the most beloved of his sons and the only one of those born to his bride still living, had been cut down by a Saxon broad-axe and had then bled to death beneath the hill of the White Horse. That death had left the kingdom without an heir, and a kingdom without an heir is a cursed kingdom, but this night, if the Gods willed, Uther's heir would be born to Mordred's widow.
We all slept four or five to a hut, though none but Nimue and Morgan were allowed into the hall's inner chambers. They were Merlin's own and Nimue alone was permitted to sleep there. Norwenna and her court lived in the hall itself, which was filled with smoke from the two fires that burned day and night. The hall was supported by twenty oak posts and had walls of plastered wattle and a thatched roof. The floor was of earth covered by rushes that sometimes caught fire and caused a panic until the flames had been stamped out.
An heir,” Uther said in a tone of wonder as though he had not really dared to hope that the Gods would favour him. He dabbed at the tears with a fur-gloved hand. “The kingdom is safe, Bedwin,” he said. “Praise God, High Lord, it is safe,” Bedwin agreed. “A boy,” Uther said, then his huge body was suddenly racked with a terrible cough. It left him panting. “A boy,” he said again when his breathing was steady. Morgan came after a while. She climbed the ladder and prostrated her stocky body in front of the High King.
