Publisher Comments:

In the past 31 years, there has been a lot of ink—actual and virtual—spilled on the subject of the Necronomicon. Some have derided it as a clumsy hoax; others have praised it as a powerful grimoire. As the decades have passed, more information has come to light both on the book's origins and discovery, and on the information contained within its pages. The Necronomicon has been found to contain formula for spiritual trans-formation, consistent with some of the most ancient mystical processes in the world, processes that were not public knowledge when the book was first published, processes that involve communion with the stars.

In spite of all the controversy, the first edition sold out before it was published. And it has never been out of print since then. This year, the original designer of the 1977 edition and the original editor have joined forces to present a new, deluxe hardcover edition of the most feared, most reviled, and most desired occult book on the planet.

About the Author

Simon is a student of magic, occultism, and religion since the mid-1960s and the editor of the Necronomicon, Simon was a frequent lecturer for the famed Warlock Shop in Brooklyn and the Magickal Childe Bookstore in Manhattan for more than ten years before his sudden disappearance in 1984, speaking on topics as diverse as religion and politics, occultism and fascism, ceremonial magic, demonolatry, the Tarot, the Qabala, and Asian occult systems. He also conducted private classes for the New York City OTO during this period, with a focus on Enochian magic, "Owandering bishops," and Afro-Caribbean occult beliefs. An ordained priest of an Eastern Orthodox church, Simon has appeared on television and radio discussing such topics as exorcism, satanism, and Nazism. The media events he organized in the 1970s and 1980s — with rock bands, ritual performances, and celebrity appearances — helped to promote the "occult renaissance" in New York City. After decades of study in European, Asian, and Latin American cult centers, this book marks his first public appearance in more than twenty years.

I am a huge fan of H.P.Lovecraft's and own a hard to find biography on his life...numerous times he was asked by people if this book first mentioned in print in his books was real and he became tired of this question as some refused to believe him. The Dream Cycle of H.P.LOVECRAFT from Del Ray Books describes in the introduction the very thing when a man asks if his theory the great"old ones" didn't merely use him [Lovecraft]as a vessel for their message of impending arrival on earth [this make's no sense as the old one's in Lovecraft's works employed many means to hide from man as "the other gods" show which supposedly punished those who would look upon them. It is to me a delightful little hoax made by a man who cannot be questioned as he is missing{maybe he sensed his hoax might be found out and made it more difficult by his absence} and it derives from a dead author. H.P. LOVECRAFT was one of the most prolific letter writers in history and in these letters it shows that this book being a real thing is absurd. Some will say that he could not be truthful as he would be thought of as either a lunatic, a tool of Satan, or the "OLD ONE'S" would not permit him. As it stands it is neither entirely proved as real or not real, and that's what makes this delightful. A careful study of the "watchers" in some witchcraft traditions will also show they are not same as the old one's of Lovecraft's work though it does lead to the Idea that Lovecraft was possibly aware of this tradition at a time when it was much more hidden and employed it in his fiction.

This book is Evil. It brings evil into your life and you will never be able to shake it off. DO NOT MESS WITH THIS. It is NOT worth it.

If you have read it or own it, tear out the pages one by one and burn it. Then burn the binding. Its the only reason to buy this book, its the ONLY book I have or ever will suggest burning. It should be wiped from existence.
