    About "H.P. Lovecraft Chuck BB"

    1. H.P. Lovecraft Chuck BB

      Howard Phillips Lovecraft, of Providence, Rhode Island, was an American author of horror, fantasy and science fiction.Lovecraft s major inspiration and invention was cosmic horror life is incomprehensible to human minds and the universe is fundamentally alien Those who genuinely reason, like his protagonists, gamble with sanity Lovecraft has developed a cult following for his Cthulhu Mythos, a series of loosely interconnected fictions featuring a pantheon of human nullifying entities, as well as the Necronomicon, a fictional grimoire of magical rites and forbidden lore His works were deeply pessimistic and cynical, challenging the values of the Enlightenment, Romanticism and Christianity Lovecraft s protagonists usually achieve the mirror opposite of traditional gnosis and mysticism by momentarily glimpsing the horror of ultimate reality.Although Lovecraft s readership was limited during his life, his reputation has grown over the decades He is now commonly regarded as one of the most influential horror writers of the 20th Century, exerting widespread and indirect influence, and frequently compared to Edgar Allan Poe.

    1. I know, I know… this is just the paranoid Democrat in me obsessing, but when I read the beginning of “Nyarlathotep,” I instantly thought of how I’ve felt in these months since Trump became president:I do not recall distinctly when it began, but it was months ago. The general tension was horrible. To a season of political and social upheaval was added a strange and brooding apprehension of hideous physical danger; a danger widespread and all-embracing, such a danger as may be imagined onl [...]


    2. 3.5 Nyarlathotep, or the Crawling Chaos, is a gate keeper of sorts and he opens the way for other gods. He has many forms, but in this story he appears as a "tall, swarthy man" who seems to have more knowledge than anyone our narrator or people around him know. Supposedly he arrived from Egypt and he travels around demonstrating strange things and making people have nightmares. The narrator himself becomes one of his followers.


    3. Nyarlathotep, Lovecraft’s 1920 “crawling chaos” addition to his fictional universe is a must read for Lovecraft fans.This very short work also demonstrates Lovecraft’s influence by Edgar Allen Poe as HP uses a more antiquated language, almost poetic in style. Another difference of Nyarlathotep with other creations in Lovecraft’s world building is that this pre-Egyptian may be an earthling who answered a call rather than an Old One himself. Also, unlike Cthulhu or Yog-Sothoth, Nyarlatho [...]


    4. A five to seven minute read.Lovecraft writes this with poetic grace, sweeps the reader into a world being overtaken by otherworldly beings and an ancient Egyptian god.Highly recommended! Pure delight and horror.


    5. Nyarlathotep is a very short story by H P. Lovecraft. Basically this short story reads like it's a scene from a dream: Nyarlathotep shows up, something supernatural is clearly going on around the guy as the city is driven half mad by him, the nameless narrator and a group of people go to visit Mr. N, the narrator even goes so bold as to mock Mr. N and claims he isn't scared of Mr. N's 'tricks', but thenI guess you know nothing good can come up with mocking a powerful Older Onea.k.a GOD.I really [...]


    6. I had no idea Nikola Tesla was so evil. First, he creates a time machine (a la, Odd Apocalpyse), now he's an eldritch being from another dimension that likes entertaining people with electricity (view spoiler)[ before he ends the world of course (hide spoiler)]OkayTo be fair, this story was apparently inspired by a dream, which explains the strangeness and seeming lack of a point. A dream starring Nikola Tesla of course! Who else? Only Lovecraft would turn him into the infamous harbinger of doom [...]


    7. "Nyarlathotepe crawling chaosI am the lastI will tell the audient void"This is the first line in Lovecraft's very short story Nyarlathotep, and right when I read that sentence I knew this was going to be a good story.This story introduces one of Lovecraft's most sinister characterse great crawling chaotic bastard himself, Nyarlathotep; except in this story he's a SWARTHY chaotic bastard. He's got to allure and congregate cultists somehow.If you've read my review of another masterpiece of Lovecra [...]


    8. While the story itself is only so-so and ends in confused horror, this Lovecraft classic created one of his most personable, lasting, and sinister characters. It also contains the line, "the hellish moon-glitter of evil snows," which demands respect. Not a bad 5 minute read at all!


    9. Nyarlathotep is a lucid descent into a horrifying reality of bottomless insanity. It describes the ascent of an old powerful Race of Gods who ruled the Earth millions of years ago, who are again brought to life by Nyarlathotep, who has a human form but is in fact one of them, a sort of sleeper cell -gatekeeper. The destruction of the world and mental annihilation of mankind are the dire consequences of this catastrophic comeback.A political and social upheaval already ravages the civilized world [...]


    10. This short story introduces one of Lovecraft's recurring "characters": Nyarlathotep. He is here described as a tall, swarthy man who resembles an ancient Egyptian pharaoh. In this story he wanders the earth, seemingly gathering legions of followers, the narrator of the story among them, through his demonstrations of strange and seemingly magical instruments. These followers lose awareness of the world around them, and through the narrator's increasingly unreliable accounts the reader gets an imp [...]


    11. Even the shortest of Lovecraft's works are amazing. He just has a way of making you understand the most unspeakable fear. Very short and worth the read.


    12. Not so much a story, as an introduction of a character, one of my favorites from the Cthulhu mythos. Seems very fragmentary and incomplete.



    13. Men advised one another to see Nyarlathotep, and shuddered. And where Nyarlathotep went, rest vanished; for the small hours were rent with the screams of nightmare. Never before had the screams of nightmare been such a public problem; now the wise men almost wished they could forbid sleep in the small hours, that the shrieks of cities might less horribly disturb the pale, pitying moon as it glimmered on green waters gliding under bridges, and old steeples crumbling against a sickly sky.Lovecraft [...]


    14. Ніхто не знає, звідки з'явився Ньярлатхотеп. Сам він стверджує, що його домом був Єгипет 27 сотень років тому. Відомо тільки одне - куди приходить Ньярлатхотеп, там зникає спокій; глибокої ночі чутні крики тих, кому сняться кошмарні сни. На своїх виступах Ньярлатхотеп творить [...]


    15. I didn't get it. At. All. Something about the return of a Pharaoh, possibly causing apocalypse?(Moving 2015 review to separate work to make room under collection for review, September 2017. And I should note that at the urging of friends I will give this one another chance. After I finish the rest of Lovecraft.)


    16. I’m pretty sure this short story is at least 80% just description of things which to me leaves little to no actual substance.That being said, this is a clear influence to one of my favorite band’s (Dream Theater) song “The Dark Eternal Night”, with some phrasing lifted right from this story. That alone made me excited, and quite so.






    17. This is probably one of my favorite Lovecraft stories aside from The Shadow Out of Time and Pickman's model, and The Call of Cthulhu, but I always find something new every time I reread or listen to one of his stories.And when I hear "That is not dead which can eternal lie and in strange eons even death may die." I always shudder a little. Cthulhu could awake anytime now and I think I'd prefer him to Trump. They both haunt my dreams, but at least Cthulhu has charisma and a plan.



    18. Nyarlathotep was the first Lovecraft story to give me nightmares; the mentions of him being soul of the Other Gods brought me back to this story in fascination like a good one ought to. I've found myself genuinely scared of any mention of Nyarlathotep in a book.(The nightmare, to those wanting to know, was that my face was bitten off by a group of small monsters possibly taken in my mind from another scary tale, Pickman's Model, and I was shown my body, which was yellow with a flat, featureless [...]


    19. "[]we beheld around us the hellish moon-glitter of evil snows.[]whirled blindly past ghastly midnights of rotting creation, corpses of dead worlds with sores that were cities, charnel winds that brush the pallid stars and make them flicker low."Riveting, and horrifying. Such an epic and dense poem that packs so much punch in less than 6 pages - two in my anthology. There is immediate confusion at what is being introduced-- how it is being introduced. This is all Lovecraft's expert flowing style; [...]


    20. I simply gotta rate this on its own. It's that brilliant. Has to be the greatest Lovecraft work. Sure, stories like The Shadow over Innsmouth or The Whisperer in the Darkness have come close, but this one takes the cake. The imagery is so vivid, the apocalyptic visions so richly depicted and yet, Lovecraft has refrained from what he couldn't manage in many of his other tales - to become overly explicatory and to destroy the mystery with a flood of words. Here, he tells whole tales on just two pa [...]


    21. Phantasms — what a beautiful word.I was utterly confused at first. Is Nyarlathotep an entity or what? Sort of like the Dementors (from the Harry Potter. series) but not likely. A different thing entirely of its own.I have to read more of H.P. Lovecraft! I love the atmosphere of his stories.


    22. I love this story. Written in 1920, probably published in 1921. This prose poem, just two pages long, is another from Lovecraft's dreams. Apparently, he wrote the first paragraph before even being entirely awake. While there are no explicit descriptions of Nyarlathotep, this story creeps me right out. The brevity actually makes the whole story much scarier. The story is so sudden. There is no exposition at all, no explanation. And, to me at least, horrifying things that have no cause always seem [...]


    23. Definitely recommend reading this before reading Lovecraft's most popular work "Call of Cthulu" It's about a being, an ancient Egyptian Pharaoh by his account, going around the world showing off his otherworldly powers.Why I love this book is for Lovecraft's use of imagery and dark imagination to bring to life a monster that he never really describes. He can have his reader existing in a real world (albeit the past) and then suddenly plunge them into a world of chaos and subconscious nightmares [...]


    24. Would be better without, "I shall tell the audient void." It's a POV violation writ large and easily eschewed. One of my favorites, this story succeeds in the horror, setting, and mood columns.(view spoiler)[ That demons walk among us should be frightening, but then the thing perches shadows on the watchers heads. Yikes! Blasphemous flutes orbit the mindless Crawling Chaos thing. Would be better if we had a character at jeopardy. Still amazing after many reads. (hide spoiler)]
