"The Crawling Chaos" is a short story by American writers H. P. Lovecraft and Winifred V. Jackson (first published April 1921 in the United Cooperative. As in their other collaboration, "The Green Meadow", the tale was credited to "Elizabeth Berkeley" (Jackson) and "Lewis Theobald, Jun" (Lovecraft). Lovecraft wrote the entire text, but Jackson is also credited since the story was based on a dream she experienced.
Despite the title's similarity to the character's epithet, Lovecraft's monster Nyarlathotep (who is, indeed, harbinger of the apocalypse) does not appear in this story. The name was used because Lovecraft liked "the ring of it".
