More > Yellow; An eerie symbol called The Yellow Sign. These stories are macabre in tone, centering, in keeping with the other tales, on characters that are often artists or decadents. The first and fourth stories, "The Repairer of Reputations" and "The Yellow Sign", are set in an imagined future 1920s America, whereas the second and third stories, "The Mask" and "In the Court of the Dragon", are set in Paris.

They are all linked to the preceding stories by their Parisian setting and artistic protagonists.< Less
