‘The Queen in the Yellow Wallpaper’ by Lynda E. Rucker

I bought this story from Lynda when I was putting together The Burning Circus anthology for the British Fantasy Society.  This story is about a writer who is creating a play much in the same vein as the ‘The King in Yellow’ written by Robert W. Chambers. Rucker writes pure ‘Southern Gothic’ and is one of our great genre treasures; I was beyond honoured to publish her first collection, The Moon Will Look Strange in 2013.

First published in The Burning Circus, 2013
