To Nyrhalahotep must all things be told,
For he is the messenger between the spheres
and the traveler between the realms of the living and the dead.
He shall summon forth the ancient ones
and wake them from their deathly slumber,
then shall the elder signs be shattered
and the lords of darkness be released.
(Lyrics from Nox Arcana, from the album Necronomicon)
Geek, nerd, call us what you will, geeks are now mainstream.
It’s considered “cool” to be a geek now. Perhaps many have grown tired of the ever depressing & mundane, & opted for the exciting world the geeks of the world have loved for years.
The name, “Nyrhalahotep”, (Neer ala ho tep) was derived of Nyarlathotep, also known as the Crawling Chaos, he was one of the cosmic Outer Gods in the fictional Cthulhu Mythos based on the writings of H. P. Lovecraft. I adopted the variation of spelling for a character I created in World of Warcraft. (as the correct spelling was already in use on my server). To save any future confusion, & in a sense, “brand” the name to be unique to ME, I kept it.
As a creative designer for over 27 years, Bryan has always been a Science Fiction fanboy. Bryan started with re-runs of the original Star Trek, Buck Rogers in the 24th Century, Doctor Who (The Tom Baker Years) Space 1999, the original Battlestar Gallactica, and so many others. Bryan turned to writing about his favorite genre in his own blog as a pastime. Using Twitter as a vehicle for his obsession with Science Fiction, he created a name for himself on Twitter as Nyrhalahotep, the name of a deity from the H.P. Lovecraft mythos. Using his creative design business to fund his love for Sci-Fi, Bryan continues to build a faithful following of fellow geeks. Bryan considers himself incredibly fortunate to have found the Geek love of his life, and then married her! These days, Bryan spends his time in his home based office with his lovely Wife and two fantastic children.
