I seem to recall it's been out of copyright and available on line for a while.

I have looked into it for my own purpose and roughly half of Lovecraft's works are public domain. His earliest stuff, basically. But because of the fact that his works are right on the cusp of when copyright laws took a major change and because of possible later claims to the rights by August Derleth and Arkham House Publishing, the copyright situation on his stuff is a huge mess

I hear that basically they changed copyright law for the Disney company, to keep Mickey Mouse out of the public domain.

Actually, no.

It has the character of Nyarlathotep as kind of a Nikolai Tesla type of figure who mesmerizes crowds. It's really quite short

Seriously, I read it a very long time ago which made some of his later works "curious."
