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.

BABYLONIAN MAGICK is a complete masterpiece anthology of ancient Anunnaki traditions being revived for modern use, featuring the entire “Mardukite Magick” Trilogy, including: “The Book of Marduk”, “The Book of Zagmuk” and “The Book of Gates” — amazing revolutionary underground breakthrough classics from the Mardukite Research Organization all in one volume!THE BOOK OF MARDUK (BY NABU) is a long-lost out-of-print 'tablet collection' that paved the way for intensive research and experimentation using Joshua Free's 'Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible' and essentially comprises the internal methods of the 'Order of Nabu' to acquire communication and establish a relationship with 'alien intelligences' via a program of ancient-styled Babylonian-inspired ('Mardukite') initiation, dedication and devotion, reviving the same process used by ancient priests of the Sumerian Anunnaki in Mesopotamia. Original, never-before-seen 'incantation-prayers' appear in both English and Akkadian/Babylonian. The 'Book of Marduk' composes Liber-W and the Tablet-W series of the revised and expanded fifth edition of the 'Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible' edited by Joshua Free.THE BOOK OF ZAGMUK is the 'official' Mardukite-Anunnaki companion to the Babylonian New Year Festival, known as Akitu (Akiti) or Zagmuk, originally available exclusively to the modern revival organization known as the Mardukite Chamberlains. The Book of Zagmuk (by Nabu) is a specially prepared ceremonial text and selected 'tablet collections' that combine materials from the 2011 handbook “Mardukite Wizards of the Wastelands” in conjunction with critical excerpts from Joshua Free's 'Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible' and essentially comprising the internal methods of the 'Order of Nabu' to establish Mardukite 'religious' continuity and Marduk's royal legitimacy at the height of the Babylonian pantheon using the Babylonian New Year Festival, Akitu (Akiti) or Zagmuk, reviving the same process used by ancient priests of the Sumerian Anunnaki in Mesopotamia! The 'Book of Zagmuk' composes a new 'Liber-Z' extracting critical information from 'Mardukite Wizards of the Wastelands' in conjunction with the Enuma Elis and Descent tablets from the revised and expanded fifth edition of the 'Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible' edited by Joshua Free.THE BOOK OF GATES was first released as the third stand-alone title in the original 2009 Mardukite 'Necronomicon' cycle as “Necronomicon Gatekeepers Grimoire” (Liber-G) or in later editions as the “Anunnaki Gatekeeper's Grimioire.” At the end of 2009, the complete series was compiled to formulate the most famous and widely distributed of our materials to the surface world, the Liber-N+L+G+9 anthology “Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible.” The “Book of Gates” (Liber-G) has always been used as a preliminary primer in practical 'mysticism' and 'occult experimentation' within the Mardukite-Babylonian Anunnaki paradigm and now, four years since its release from the underground, it remains uniquely popular! The 'Book of Gates' is an abridged ceremonial edition of materials published in 2009 as the 'Necronomicon Gatekeepers Grimoire' (Liber-G) also appearing in the 2012 nostalgia edition Liber-G and the complete Mardukite Year-1 anthology, 'Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible', now available in the 2012 revised and expanded 5th edition.BABYLONIAN MAGICK — A Grimoire of the Rites & Rituals of the Mardukite Anunnaki Tradition — first appeared in full-color as the 2012 ceremonial edition of “Mardukite Magick“ and is now being reissued by the Mardukite Truth Seeker Press in a special commemorate edition to celebrate the 5th Anniversary of the Beltane Mardukite Stargate global ceremonial observance of 2009 by the Mardukite Chamberlains (Mardukite Research Organization).

The stories in this book evoke a tracery of evil rarely rivaled in horror writing. They represent the whole evolving trajectory of such notions as Hastur, the King in Yellow, Carcosa, the Yellow Sign, the Black Stone, Yuggoth, and the Lake of Hali. A succession of writers from Ambrose Bierce to Ramsey Campbell and Karl Edward Wagner have explored and embellished these concepts so that the sum of the tales has become an evocative tapestry of hypnotic dread and terror, a mythology distinct from yet overlapping the Cthulhu Mythos. Here for the first time is a comprehensive collection of all the relevant tales.

As Holderlin was to Martin Heidegger and Mallarme to Jacques Derrida, so is H.P. Lovecraft to the Speculative Realist philosophers. Lovecraft was one of the brightest stars of the horror and science fiction magazines, but died in poverty and relative obscurity in the 1930s. In 2005 he was finally elevated from pulp status to the classical literary canon with the release of a Library of America volume dedicated to his work. The impact of Lovecraft on philosophy has been building for more than a decade. Initially championed by shadowy guru Nick Land at Warwick during the 1990s, he was later discovered to be an object of private fascination for all four original members of the twenty-first century Speculative Realist movement. In this book, Graham Harman extracts the basic philosophical concepts underlying the work of Lovecraft, yielding a weird realism capable of freeing continental philosophy from its current soul-crushing impasse. Abandoning pious references by Heidegger to Holderlin and the Greeks, Harman develops a new philosophical mythology centered in such Lovecraftian figures as Cthulhu, Wilbur Whately, and the rat-like monstrosity Brown Jenkin. The Miskatonic River replaces the Rhine and the Ister, while Holderlin's Caucasus gives way to Lovecraft's Antarctic mountains of madness.
