    First off, I appreciate that this book sticks to its main theme throughout all of the stories. Even if many stories seemed to focus on the Egyptian ties to Nyarlathotep (which I personally really enjoyed), at least I feel that has a strong connection to Nyarlathotep. I really really like the setting of Egypt, so there is some bias there towards the high rating. There was no story that I disliked, and in fact I thought most were quite good. Excluding HPL, the highlights for me were Robert Bloch, [...]

    Like the other Chaosium Cycle-Books this one focuses on one entity from H.P. Lovecrafts Cthulhu mythos - in this case Nyarlathotep - and collects stories and poems in which it features prominently. As some of the other Cycle-Books this one does very well in the first half or so and then seems to run out of suitable texts, thus starting off on a tangent and collecting stories whose connection with the featured entity is rather fragile and thin.In this case the second half concentrates not so much [...]

    This collection starts well with several of my favorites from HPL himself, as well as the best Derleth Mythos story, and one of the best by Robert Bloch. The Lin Carter story is too long (and only tangentially related to the Mythos anyway), and the other tales are of minor interest. What is most striking to me, however, is editor Price's erudition. Not only does he make strong theological arguments about HPL's mythos stories, but he is also quite well-read on literary theory and criticism. Price [...]

    Better than the average collection, with works by major names like Robert Bloch and Lord Dunsany as well as HPL, natch, The Nyarlathotep Cycle offers a bevvy of stories about our favorite faceless pharaoh without a dud in the bunch, though some are obviously better than others. A few stories are a bit slight (toward the end there are a couple that barely break two pages) but it makes me want to read more of Chaosium's Cycle series.

    A flawed anthology in my opinion. I always considerd Nyarlathotep -as a member of the cosmic triumvirate Nyarlathothep/Yog-Sothoth/Azathoth a.k.a The Cosmic Atom- to be the most fascinating entity of the pantheon. When featuring 'The Mad man's Hermes' the possible themes,narrative variations, etc should be neigh endless. Which is not at all the case in this hit & miss affair.

    Less "Nyarlathotep" and more "Creepy Mummy/Pharaoh" without direct reference to the big guy himself, but a quality collection of weird fiction and a decent addition to the Cycle series.

    A collection of stories based on the writings of H.P. Lovecraft. These are, to me, only slightly better than the original Lovecraft stories. Just not a fan of his writings. Not recommended

    Could have done with more Nyarlathotep, but I'm sure that's not from lack of trying on the collecting editor's part. The ones that were about Nyarlathotep or at least creepy mummies were awesome.
