During a time of political and social unrest in Egypt, a god-like force, Nyarlathotep, emerges. He travels the land dazzling people with electricity and psychology. While witnesses of this god-like creature encourage others to see him, afterwards people seem terrified. As the narrator recounts his experiences, he becomes disoriented. By the end of the story, the narrator and the other viewers of Nyarlathotep begin to lose touch with reality. H.P. Lovecraft (1890-1937) was a Rhode Island -born writer best known for his contributions to the genre of horror. His eerie stories and poetry were influenced by the writing of Edgar Allan Poe and Lovecraft’s own family life. Being sick often as a child and dealing with the death of his father, who battled with mental illness, Lovecraft seems to have infused these experiences and emotions into his writing. A theme in many of his works is that too much knowledge can be harmful and lead to destruction. attention while he was alive, he is now considered one of the most influential horror writers of the 20th century. He is famed for creating the shared fictional universe of the Cthulhu Mythos and the fictional magical textbook "Necronomican." Download and start listening now!

About the Author

H. P. Lovecraft (1890–1937) was an American author who achieved posthumous fame through his influential works of horror fiction. Virtually unknown and only published in pulp magazines before he died in poverty, he is now regarded as one of the most significant twentieth-century authors in his genre. He was born in Providence, Rhode Island, where he lived most of his life. His relatively small corpus of work consists of three short novels and about sixty short stories.
