5 Chambers, Robert W. The Talkers
New York A. L Burt Co 1923 Reprint Hardcover Good with no dust jacket 
291 pages, cloth, covers little dust-soiled and faded, text very good. From the Internet Book Database of Fiction: "Occult fantasy novel, in some respects an adaptation of the Trilby theme, in which a murdered woman is reanimated with two souls by a medical experimenter. ". A tedious novel about a love triangle between a young man named Sutton, a woman named Gilda Greenway, and an unpleasant hypnotist named Sadoul." " From Wikipedia: "Chambers studied at the École des Beaux-Arts, and at Académie Julian, in Paris from 1886 to 1893, and his work was displayed at the Salon as early as 1889. On his return to New York, he succeeded in selling his illustrations to Life, Truth, and Vogue magazines. Then, for reasons unclear, he devoted his time to writing, producing his first novel, In the Quarter (written in 1887 in Munich). His most famous, and perhaps most meritorious, effort is The King in Yellow, a collection of Art Nouveau short stories published in 1895. This included several famous weird short stories which are connected by the theme of a fictitious drama, The King in Yellow, which drives those who read it insane. E. F. Bleiler described The King in Yellow as one of the most important works of American supernatural fiction. It was also strongly admired by H. P. Lovecraft and his circle."
