Robert William Chambers (May 26, 1865 – December 16, 1933) was an American artist and writer. He wrote horror, romance and historical fiction and, unlike most of his contemporaries and those who followed in his footsteps (such as Robert E. Howard and H.P. Lovecraft), was quite successful and lived comfortably thanks to his romance stories. His best-remembered work is The King in Yellow.
