The Hastur Cycle

The stories in this book evoke a tracery of evil rarely rivaled in horror writing. They represent the whole evolving trajectory of such notions as Hastur, the King in Yellow, Carcosa, the Yellow Sign, the Black Stone, Yuggoth, and the Lake of Hali. A succession of writers from Ambrose Bierce to Ramsey Campbell and Karl Edward Wagner have explored and embellished these conc

    nb: I have outlined the contents of each story in this book (without spoilers) at my reading journal blog, so if you are interested, feel free to click here.

    Some time ago, long before HBO’s True Detective was even in the works, I read S.T. Joshi’s Chaosium collection of Robert W. Chambers’ The Yellow Sign and Other Stories. It was my introduction to King in Yellow, and I was hooked. I had to have more. After doing a little research, I realized that this book (which I already owned) would be a

    Some time ago, long before HBO’s True Detective was even in the works, I read S.T. Joshi’s Chaosium collection of Robert W. Chambers’ The Yellow Sign and Other Stories. It was my introduction to King in Yellow, and I was hooked. I had to have more. After doing a little research, I realized that this book (which I already owned) would be a very good thing to read.

    Robert M. Price notes about this collection that

    “The Hastur Cycle … may be seen as a literary genealogy, a family tree in which Lovecraft’s ‘The Whisperer in Darkness’ is a single branch, with other branches stemming from it and going in their own directions”

    and that “the family tree begins with Ambrose Bierce.” With “The Whisperer in Darkness” at the center of this collection, the book focuses on the antecedents of this story (Bierce, Chambers, Wagner, Blish, Machen); then, after Lovecraft’s piece, moves on to the works of writers inspired by HPL. But as I’ve discovered, Lovecraft only mentions Hastur as one among many terrible names, and moves his story into the realm of outer space and crustacean-like fungal creatures (Mi-Go), a theme which runs for a while before another author makes Hastur a participant in a battle of bad monsters and a whole new mythology, so I don’t think I quite got the connection. If someone wants explain it to me, I would be grateful. I thought about this long and hard, believe me.

    All in all, I liked the majority of these stories, but re this connection I mentioned earlier, I’m still a little puzzled. I tried to keep notes but honestly, I must have missed it along the way. In the long run, though, considering the authors represented here and the stories they have to tell, it’s a pretty good book for readers of weird fiction. I would have enjoyed it better, I think, if I hadn’t been looking for how things all fit together. Otherwise, definitely recommended.

    Just a note –I have the original version of The Hastur Cycle rather than the revised edition of 2006 so I’m missing “The Feaster from Afar,” by Joseph Payne Brennan. Otherwise, it seems to be the same, although I don’t know if Price’s commentary has changed in the newer version. Another note and a warning: ignore the introductions to each story until the end — I discovered after reading the intro to “An Inhabitant of Carcosa” that the editor needed to provide spoiler alerts, so I waited to read the introductions until after I’d read each story.
