Robert W. Chambers: ‘The Third Eye’ Audiobook

Chambers-King in Yellow Drawing

Robert W. Chambers was considered one of the best supernatural story tellers of his time. He is best known for his book of short stories entitled The King in Yellow, published in 1895, the book that influenced H.P. Lovecraft and the Cthulhu Mythos. H. P. Lovecraft included passing references to various things and places from the book—such as the Lake of Hali and the Yellow Sign — in “The Whisperer in Darkness” (1931).

In the short story “The Third Eye” (1915) a pair of scientists vie for the affections of an attractive waitress as the three of them seek a secret race of beings that possess a third eye on the back of their heads.
