Robert W. Chambers
An American writer most known for his horror fiction, especially the collection of short stories, The King In Yellow.
According to wikipedia, he received the rare honor of being insulted by The Dark Prince of Rhode Island:
H. P. Lovecraft said of him in a letter to Clark Ashton Smith,
"Chambers is like Rupert Hughes and a few other fallen Titans - equipped with the right brains and education but wholly out of the habit of using them."
At least he didn't call him squamous.
