The Inn of the Fates


Sarah Read, "The Inn of the Fates" in Under Twin Suns: Alternate Histories of the Yellow Sign, ed. James Chambers (Hippocampus Press: 2021). 

Sarah Read's story captures the imagination in a similar way that Robert W. Chambers' The King in Yellow does. In the same way that Chambers doesn't give us all the answers and leaves things mysterious, this one is weird in all the right places! It is a King in Yellow story in the tradition of Bierce, Chambers, and Wagner with no Lovecraftian detours—an absolute delight.   

This one has a lot of "oh, that was cool" moments. Which one grabbed you?
