How thin, how fragile the veil between madness and sanity. How poorly marked, how laxly guarded the border between the visionary and the dreamer. And let us never forget that the man who calls himself an emperor is no lunatic as long as the people bow to him.

My diary remains in the Kingwood. There it shall remain; I don't need any reminders just at present. Last night I dreamed of Aldergate. Today I am so very, very tired.

But! Never mind my troubles - great and terrible deeds are a-doing. "The Repairer of Reputations" is a story well before its time. It comes from a collection called "The King in Yellow," published by Robert W. Chambers in 1895, and has been immensely influential; the spreading tendrils of this story may be seen squirming their way through almost all of the weird fiction and cosmic horror of the past century. Old H.P. Lovecraft certainly enjoyed it, and for all he may have written slightingly of Chambers he wasn't shy about lifting some of his most beloved tropes from this and other of his stories.

Have you read "The King in Yellow?" I should hope not, for your sake. However, in the immortal words of Mark Twain: Now you've asked for it, and I'll give it to you, because there ain't anything mean about me - but if you find you don't like having your sanity ripped from you by an exquisite tide of horrifying truth, you won't have anyone to blame for it but your own self. The Repairer of Reputations, by Robert W. Chambers.


Hi Adrian! I want to compliment your way of writing. It is very unique and elegant. It reminds me of Lang Leav. Do you happen to know her? She is one of the most popular Romantic Poet today. Your writing style is similar to her style. Do check her out in your free time. Anyway, keep posting!


Thank you for sharing these wonderful books with us. I've already read this book and they are all worth reading. In the book The Repairer of the Reputations, you will learn a lot of lessons from this book. I really comment Sir Robert Chamber in writing such work of literature. After I read this book, I've learned too much from it, in which I applied it here in my work.
