    In addition to the other works of Kennith Hite I would recommend “Trail of Cthulhu” Role Playing game that was wrote by Mr. Hite published by Pelgrane Press. If you enjoy the Call of Cthulhu RPG you will love Trail of Cthulhu.

    The Nyarlathotep story reminds me of “the Repairer of Reputations” in Chamber’s The King in Yellow anthology. Both of these stories are told from the point of view of someone who is crazy. The reader can’t be sure of what is real and what is the narrator’s delusions.

    So the only real, second hand reference to racism was from a jilted lover. Sigh.

    I assumed the people that attended Nyarlathotep’s shows were essentially brainwashed or possessed by the show itself, as if the show was a spell cast on the masses. HPL says, “Then the sparks played amazingly around the heads of the spectators, and hair stood up on end whilst shadows more grotesque than I can tell came out and squatted on the heads.” Like the Brain Slugs from Futurama, something(s) has been conjured onto the heads of the spectators, robbing them of their will.

    Nyarlathotep humorously pops up as Uncle Neil in the young adult pulp novel “Awoken”, a tongue in cheek depressed-girl-falls-in-love-with-a-monster romance written by committee.
