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.
A very unnerving 10 minute short, but very little plot actually happens or is explained.
Great story. Well written and gripping. Great piece of the Cthulu myth is. Well narrated. I love all of HP's work as well as the majority of the modern additions to the Mythos.

Horrible sound quality and lifeless reading. Stay away from this one at all costs. Plenty of other good lovecraft pieces out there on audible. Grab some of the mike vendeti ones.
While I'm an avid fan of HP Lovecraft, I feel that the narrator did not realize this was a horror story.
Almost typical Lovecraft, yet a bit more horrible. The protagonist battles against the blackness and chaos which is Nyarlathotep. Once the protagonist challenges Nyarlathotep at a lecture all sanity eludes the gathered crowd. Only I am alive to tell the tale......but the gargoyles are staring and . . . . .
