Anyone familiar with H. P. Lovecraft's work knows of the Necronomicon, the black magic grimoire he invented as a literary prop in his classic horror stories. There have been several attempts at creating this text, yet none stand up to Lovecraft's own descriptions of the Necronomicon...until now. Fans of Lovecraftian magic and occult fiction will delight in Donald Tyson's Necronomicon, based purely within Lovecraft's own fictional universe, the Cthulhu Mythos. This grimoire traces the wanderings of Abdul Alhazred, a necromancer of Yemen, on his search for arcane wisdom and magic. Alhazred's magical adventures lead him to the Arabian desert, the lost city of Irem, ruins of Babylon, lands of the Old Ones, and Damascus, where he encounters a variety of strange creatures and accrues necromantic secrets.

Elder things. Ghasts. Night-gaunts. Meet the creatures of the Cthulhu Mythos, denizens of the dark but brilliant imagination of H. P. Lovecraft. The collection of occult horror and fantasy he penned during his short lifetime is a legacy that has terrified and inspired generations of fans. Lovecraft's tales reveal the horror of seeing what has been hidden from humanity for good reason. Written for those curious about Lovecraft and his work, this illustrated guide presents detailed descriptions of twenty-nine of the monsters, creatures, and gods that inhabit Lovecraft's macabre fictional universe, without any spoilers that could ruin a future read of his stories. It also includes an introduction to the man regarded as the father of American horror.
On the heels of his widely successful trilogy of works honoring H. P. Lovecraft, Donald Tyson now unveils a true grimoire of ritual magic inspired by the Cthulhu Mythos. The Grimoire of the Necronomicon is a practical system of ritual magic based on Lovecraft's mythology of the alien gods known as the Old Ones. Fans of Lovecraft now have the opportunity to reliably and safely get in touch with the Old Ones and draw upon their power for spiritual and material advancement. Tyson expands upon the Old Ones' mythology and reintroduces these "monsters" in a new, magical context—explaining their true purpose for our planet. As a disciple, you choose one of the seven lords as a spiritual mentor, who will guide you toward personal transformation. Grimoire of the Necronomicon features ritual forms and invocations for the daily and yearly rites of the Old Ones, individual rituals devoted to each of the seven major figures of the mythos, and most importantly, a grand ritual for personal attainment. The daily rituals provide an excellent system of esoteric training for individual practitioners. This grimoire also provides structure for an esoteric society—Order of the Old Ones—devoted to the group practice of this unique system of magic.

This is the most complete collection of American author of horror, fantasy, and science fiction. Stephen King has called Lovecraft "the twentieth Century's greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale." His works were deeply pessimistic and cynical, challenging the values of the Enlightenment, Romanticism, and Christian humanism. Lovecraft's major inspiration and invention was cosmic horror. Lovecraft has developed a cult following for his Cthulhu Mythos as well as the Necronomicon, a fictional grimoire of magical rites and forbidden lore.

The Necronomicon of Mesopotamia... Sumerians... Star-Gates of Babylon... The Anunnaki... Ancient Alien Gods... The Mardukite Babylonian Religion... The world has waited long enough! Here it is! An authentic Necronomicon for the masses! Released in commemoration of the 5th Anniversary of the "Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible," the Mardukite Truth Seeker Press proudly presents the new abridged compact travel edition of Joshua Free's "Necronomicon" excerpting the primary source book of the Mardukite Chamberlains Research Organization uncovered during their first active year of development in 2009! Ever since the visions of H.P. Lovecraft began to haunt the world, people from all walks of life have celebrated various interpretations of these musings. We are shown a world shroud in darkness that has been materialized by primordial malignant gods who fought one another for control of the Universe and for the worship of the humans who brought to them sacrifices and abominable litanies. But as many have already assumed, this Necronomicon tradition was indeed the product of Lovecraft's imagination, and it only much later became known as the Cthulhu-mythos, a haven for horror-fantasy genre authors. For nearly a century thereafer, the Necronomicon remained a fictional product of dark fantasy until the famous "Simon" folio was presented to the world in 1977. While many readers superimposed the Lovecraftian lore into their interpretation verbatim, this new document did not present rituals by which the malignant Ancient Ones would be unleashed into this world - in fact, it suggested the exact opposite: beneath the foundation of the esoteric mysteries exists a secret and sacred tradition to fight against this very act! As an unfortunate move by its contemporary readership, the "Simonomicon" came under attack as being no more authentic than Lovecraft's own stories. More serious practitioners came to a more educated conclusion: the magickal notebook (or grimoire) was incomplete at best, alluding not to the Enlilite traditions common to the "Sumerians," but rather to a Mardukite tradition that was raised by the "Babylonians" in honor of Marduk, firstborn son of Enki, who ruled men and gods from the Tower of Babel. Since 2008, the range of the Mardukite work included lengthy discourses with other related published researchers, unceasing hours in abandoned corners of old libraries and museums, participation in sessions with other practicing occultists and even a visit to the "tablet collections" at the University of Pennsylvania and Chicago among others. The culminating results were nothing like anyone would have expected: an authentic and verifiable version of the Necronomicon salvaged from the shifting desert sands of time in the Middle East and Egypt, unparalleled by anything already available to True Seekers. It appeared to be the most complete collection of ancient writings on the planet that formed the very foundation of all the human traditions and beliefs that would emerge thereafter. This present edition of the Necronomicon edited by Joshua Free, is not Lovecraftian or Simonian (while it could serve to offer validity to materials from both sources for those who seek it), neither is it "dangerous" or a "hoax" (though those who fear the revelation of these truths for the world will think it the former and label it the later). This edition of the Necronomicon is the single most ancient and pure unaltered lore concerning the hottest topics of our time and all times, including divinity, creation, human origins, aliens, religion, pantheistic magickal traditions, alternate dimensions, portals and the afterlife. In this new millennium of uncertainties, it is most likely that the uncovering of the past will reveal our future.
The church where it began no longer exists. Just like so much else in this bizarre case, which has quietly made history over the last four years, has receded inaudibly into the fogs of memory. Simon was a monk, a priest, and later an abbot. Finally, he was a consecrated bishop of the Eastern Church, ordained before he graduated from high school. He came from a Slavic background and acquired a wide knowledge of numerous foreign languages, such as French, Italian, Spanish, Slavonic, Greek, Latin, and Mandarin Chinese. This ability allowed him to communicate with individuals from many races and nationalities and to probe the ambiguities of religion and magic in worn leather books and ancient manuscripts from long-forgotten lands.
These astonishing tales blend elements of horror, science fiction and cosmic terror that are as powerful today as they were when they were first published.
Author: H.P. Lovecraft
Publisher: Hachette UK
WIKIPEDIA says: 'H.P. Lovecraft's reputation has grown tremendously over the decades, and he is now commonly regarded as one of the most important horror writers of the 20th century, exerting an influence that is widespread, though often indirect.' H.P. Lovecraft's tales of the tentacled Elder God Cthulhu and his pantheon of alien deities were initially written for the pulp magazines of the 1920s and '30s. These astonishing tales blend elements of horror, science fiction and cosmic terror that are as powerful today as they were when they were first published. This electronic tome collects together Lovecraft's tales of terror, including the complete Cthulhu Mythos cycle, just the way they were originally published. It will introduce a whole new generation of readers to Lovecraft's fiction, as well as being a must-buy for those fans who want all his work in a single, definitive volume.
Thirteen points of entry. Locked gateways to magical realms of immense power—and danger, for the uninitiated. Within these pages are thirteen keys. Enter the Necronomicon and be forever changed. In this authentic sourcebook for magicians, occult scholar Donald Tyson uses H. P. Lovecraft’s story elements and characters—alien races, ancient sorceries, the Dreamlands, deities, witches, and ghouls—as the foundation for a workable and coherent system of modern ritual magic based on the thirteen true zodical constellations. This authoritative guide presents the essential elements of the Necronomicon mythos for use in esoteric practices such as dream scrying, astral projection, magical rites, and invocations.

What if a book existed that gave answers to everything you've ever wondered about? What would you do to learn its secrets? Tales of such books have abounded for millennia and are legend in occult history. One of the most pervasive modern iterations is that of the Necronomicon, said to be a genuine occult text from the 8th century. The Necronomicon really is the creation of science fiction writer H.P. Lovecraft (1891-1937), in whose books the magic volume first appears in print. In The Necronomicon Files two occult authorities explore all aspects of The Necronomicon, from its first appearance in Lovecraft's fiction to its ongoing pervasive appearance in cult and occult circles. The Necronomicon Files, revised and expanded further, reveals the hoax of the Necronomicon. Harms and Gonce show that the apocryphal history of the Necronomicon was concocted by Lovecraft to lend it verisimilitude in his fiction. The magical text was transformed into an icon among Lovecraft's literary circle, who added to the book's legend by referring to it in their own writing. People became convinced that it was a real book and its references in literature and film continue to grow. The book also examines what people have undergone to find the Necronomicon and the cottage industry that has arisen over the past three decades to supply the continuing demand for a book that does not exist. Scholarly yet accessible, humorous and intriguing, The Necronomicon Files illuminates the depth of the creative process and the transformations of modern myth, while still managing to preserve much of the romance and fascination that surrounds the Necronomicon in our culture.

Jack was the only living relative left in the family and decided since his great Aunt Hilda's cabin was being neglected, he would put it to use. Jack decided a good idea would be to invite some of his closest friends over for a night of singing and telling ghost stories around a campfire. Jack mailed out invitations to Rhonda, Michael and Matilda and chose Friday the 13th to set the mood for a spooky night around a campfire at his great Aunt Hilda’s cabin. Jack didn't know the whole story about his great Aunt Hilda. Legend has it that Hilda was an evil Witch that used to live in Salem, Massachusetts and thought she could escape the witch hunters by living deep in the woods in an isolated area in a small cabin. The Witch hunter's weren't about to let Jack's great Aunt Hilda, the most evil Witch get away. The Witch hunter's were hot on Hilda's trail and only took about a week to catch up with Hilda because an old farmer who lived nearby Hilda's cabin noticed some strange things going on in the cabin. When the Witch hunter's arrived at the old farmers home the Witch hunter's asked the old farmer if he noticed any strange things in the area and he replied "Yes, I did notice an old woman with some old book reading from it and when I stopped by her cabin to check on her she started reading some strange words from that book and telling me if I didn't leave, she would cast a spell on me, so I left." That's all the Witch hunter's needed to burn this Witch at the stake. The old farmer was happy to lead the witch hunter's to the Witch's cabin and watch her burn at the stake. The Witch hunter's decided that when they got the Witch they would cut her head off and bury it underneath the cabin's floor with the book. The Witch hunter's torches were blazing and chanting "Burn the Witch,Burn the Witch." The Witch hunter's surrounded the cabin and about five of the toughest men rushed inside the cabin and grabbed Hilda by the arms and legs thrusting her out the door of the cabin to the wood chopping block. One of the Witch hunter's said "Do you have anything you want to say before I cut your head off and burn your body at the stake?" Hilda replied, "I will be back someday to seek vengeance on your ancestors." The Witch hunter raised the ax and off rolled Hilda's head off the chopping block. Then the Witch hunter's burned her body at the stake and some of the other Witch hunter's took her head back to the cabin and retrieved the book of the dead and buried them both. Jack had no idea the book and his great Aunt Hilda's head were buried beneath the floor of the cabin. This night of singing and storytelling would be a night they all would remember if they all made it out alive.

The long anticipated Mardukite guide to the Simon Necronomicon! Since being released in 1977 -- the same year that the world saw the arrival of "Star Wars," the "Shannara" series of Terry Brooks, "Close Encounters of the Third Kind," the debut by Zecharia Sitchin and many other consciousness paradigm-shifts -- the Necronomicon by Simon has changed the shape of the modern "New Age" movement and human understanding, introducing over a million people of the new generations to the reality of the Anunnaki traditions born from ancient Sumerians, Babylonians, Akkadians, Assyrians and Chaldeans. Shrouded in doom and gloom, contrasted against the "Cthulhu Mythos" envisioned by H.P. Lovecraft, who very well may have developed the title -- Necronomicon -- for his own saga and literary cycle, the book presented by editor Simon is anything but a fabrication of fantasy, but is instead an allusion to a very real, though fragmented, "Mardukite" Babylonian Anunnaki Tradition, a system that once dominated the prehistoric and ancient world before the rise of the Greeks, Romans and even Egyptians! The modern "Mardukite" research organization has spent nearly half a decade exploring the mysteries of Mesopotamia, the Anunnaki and related subjects. After having completed the entire 'Necronomicon Anunnaki' literary legacy with the Mardukite Chamberlains, prolific writer, editor and founder of the "Mardukites," Joshua Free, ends his years of silence concerning the Simon Necronomicon by finally providing his expert commentary on the classic text in Liber 555, "The Necronomicon for Beginners: Unveiling the Secrets of the Simon Necronomicon." Edition note: This same "Liber 555" material is simultaneously released in a larger print version as "Stargate to the Abyss: The Mardukite Guide to the Simon Necronomicon" by Joshua Free.
