In the end he will say that he was ‘involved but did not write the book’. Peter Levenda The story is told, I think, in other places and I have been asked this before — also on the Internet — so to summarize: It was a continuing crime, the books being taken from libraries and private collections all over the country and, it was said, Canada and Mexico.
They were finally busted, and did federal time, but most of ndcronomicon books were never recovered. The Necronomicon was part of this swag as were a lot of occult books. It was in Greek, handwritten, but the problem was that much of the Greek was unintelligible. My modest contribution to this was recognizing that some of the Greek was an attempt to phoneticize Babylonian and Sumerian words.

I am not one of the people arguing that this Necronomicon is THE Necronomicon, or that Lovecraft was even aware that it existed. I think Lovecraft heard the name through one of his friends in the Golden Dawn, and used it creatively. Alan Cabal Inthe book made its debut in the window of Hermans little shop of horrors in Chelsea ed.
It generated a scene of its own, a scene bursting with mad, hecronomicon creativity and slapstick mayhem.
Robert Anton Wilson and Robert Shea had just published their Illuminatus trilogy, and interest in secret societies and occult lore was sweeping through counterculture circuits. Into this bubbling swamp of spiritual fecundity stepped Peter Levenda, aka “Simon. The Necronomicon was a team effort. Herman provided the sponsorship, while the design and layout were the work of Jim Wasserman of the OTO, a raving cokehead from Jersey named Larry Barnes whose daddy had the production facilities and a fellow who called himself Khem Set Rising who also designed the sigils.
The text itself was Levenda’s creation, a synthesis of Sumerian and later Babylonian myths and texts peppered with names of wl from H. Necronomiconn notorious and enormously popular Cthulhu stories. Levenda seems to have drawn hhe on the works of Samuel Noah Kramer for the Sumerian, and almost certainly spent a great deal of time at the University of Pennsylvania library researching the thing.
Structurally, the text was modeled on the wiccan Book of Shadows and the Goetia, a grimoire of doubtful authenticity itself dating from the late Middle Ages. He cultivated an necrpnomicon, secretive persona,giving him a fantastic and blatantly implausible line of bull to cover the books origins.
He had no telephone.
He always wore business suits, in stark contrast to the flamboyant Renaissance necronomlcon, proto-goth costuming that dominated the scene. There you go ATS, there is more to come, but that should suffice, for the moment, to help us get some perspective on the background of the Necronomicon, and maybe assuage our eldritch horror a bit.
I thought The Necronomicon was the work of H. The Phraseology and style of writing would seem to indicate such. Okay, nevermind, my speed skim read different. Then, there’s necronomocon the Bruce Campbell contribution. When I here Necronomicon I automatically think. All my investigation led to a dead end.
Originally posted by Xoanon What phraseology and writing style? Have you got a copy of The Necronomicon? A small appendix to the story of the Necronomicon I’m fairly sure Lovecraft’s fans will enjoy because despite the fact it is true it sounds like something Lovecraft himself might have written.
A little over twenty years ago a paperback came out called something like ‘Bizarre Murders’. One of the murders it described was that of a cult necornomicon and his family, a wife and two daughters. The nature of the cult was never discovered as after the murder all the members disappeared and none were ever found. It has been over twenty years so forgive an old memory but either the husbands arms had been removed and the arms of his family hacked in an unsuccessful attempt to remove them or the other way around.
The wife and daughter had their arms removed and an attempt was made to remove his. I really don’t remember. What makes this murder relevant to this thread is wl the leader of the cult claimed to be writing a ‘true history of the world’ as it was dictated to him at two or three every morning by a demon. Although the accounts of the story spell the name several different ways it is referred to at least twice as ‘The Necronomicon’.
This, by the way, all occurred when H. The Starry Wisdom Sect?
Al Azif: The Necronomicon by L. Sprague de Camp
An attempt to remove evidence of webbed digits? Let’s not get silly. Nothing to see here. Let’s all move along now. For what it’s worth. OP I wonder if its related to the Codex Gigas. Yes, it’s true, Necronomicon is nearly a household word since it has been taken up by popular culture and satirized in movies.
One of the things that I hope to express on this thread is that there are folks out there that take it very, very seriously. I am going to add some posts to the thread soon that will highlight this for you all. In the meantime, here is the actual interview that I cited above where Tracy Twyman interviews Peter Levenda, who is Simon, the author of the Simon Necronomicon, even though he denies it.
He begins to speak of the book at 44 seconds. Originally posted by Xoanon reply to post by phroziac. Like all good fiction it draws from truth for inspiration. Love craft was a good writer that told a good story. He used all sorts of sources and people for inspiration. He probably knew a real Arab that practiced jinn magic which i still done for inspiration for his mad Arab character. Living in Arkham or its surrounding arears may also get you access.
If you are granted access your research must state that any of the reference materials will not be uttered, thought, or otherwise incantated in any sort of way.
If you are a translator that you will not dwell too long on the text your translating Again There is a reasons there are Gates to the other realms and Gates is one of the richest men here.
But do not bother yourself with such nonsense, keep thinking they are make-believe made up writings of a silly author s and stay in the shallow end of the pool otherwise you might drown. Yes…Keep your research to the interwebs and word of mouth, and stay on that path, best not to dig to deep unless you are prepared to lose all you have ever known uncovering the horrid truth… edit on by abeverage because:
