 The King in Yellow/Lovecraft - Quarter To Three Forums
Chambers uses a mysterious play called The King in Yellow to link five stories, each of which generally deals with the play causing someone to go mad, have spooky visions of vistas on faraway planets, reel at this unimaginable horror from across the stars, and so on.
Chambers' King in Yellow is the earliest mention of it I'm aware of, but who knows, maybe Machen or someone like that had an earlier use of it, or it may have been an allusion to some "yellow" period writer or some other obscure reference.
The most surprising King in Yellow reference I've seen was a short story of that name by Raymond Chandler of all people, who I suspect in general disdained fantasy and horror stories if he even deigned to let them come to his attention.

It was followed by a few science-fiction comedies which are still reprinted from time to time, and then by dozens of popular historical romances and "society" novels, now long out of print and apparently unlamented.

Alas, I had found "The King in Yellow." After a few moments which seemed ages, I was putting it away with a nervous shudder, when Boris and Jack came in bringing their marble rabbit.
The last thing I recollect with any distinctness was hearing Jack say, "For Heaven's sake, doctor, what ails him, to wear a face like that?" and I thought of "The King in Yellow" and the Pallid Mask.
I turned my eyes to the spinet; every yellow key seemed eloquent of her caressing hand, and I rose, drawn by the strength of my life's passion to the sealed door of the marble room.
