I agree with Kakkarot.

The Necronomicon was invented by HP Lovecraft for use in his literature. You will find no references to the Necronomicon before the early 1900's. Lovecraft has told in letters how the idea came to him in a dream, and he's written essays on how effective it is in literature to make references to things without laying things out absolutely, as laying things out absolutely can set the reader up for a disappointment. As a testament to how effective that idea really is, several people have sort of cashed in on Lovecraft's idea and written 'Necronomicons' more or less based on a fictional history of the fictional book written by Lovecraft himself. Some of them, like the 'Simon' Necronomicon, are more like a bad addition to the Cthulhu Mythos than any ancient forbidden book.

I believe some pretty eclectic stuff, but even I don't fall for the Necronomicon being real. HP Lovecraft's work is pretty nice, too, by the way. [Cheesy]

the systems and rituals outlined in the book CAN work though- although they aren't the most safe.

Confidence in what you're doing and what you believe is the most important thing in magic. I think that's a universal rule most people agree with. You can probably get the same effects using an ant in rituals if you believed in what you were doing.

that's true- it's that there's a well laid-out system, that's all.

It's my understanding that the Necronomicon is a manual for using dead people's bodies as vehicles for demons.


SUPREMELY SO

It's almost certainly a piece of fiction but that doesn't mean one cannot use it.

I just read an article on H.P. Lovecraft in this months Fortean Times.

"To begin with, it's clear that Lovecraft himself had no belief whatsoever in the occult"

"In 1925, he wrote to his friend Clark Ashton Smith, saying: 'I am, indeed, an absolute materialist so far as actual belief goes;with not a shred of credence in any form of supernaturalism- religeon, spiritualism, transcentalism, metempsychosis, or immortality' "

He just took his ideas for his horror fiction from various occult books hat he read.

"In a letter written near the end of his life, he revealed that he found the language of esotericism 'flat, childish, pompous, and unconvincing', and expressed his belief that a writer could make up occult books just as terrifying as any that actually existed"

I think that is the book that is bound in human flesh and written in human blood that Ash and his friends accidently used (or rather some old scientist dude) to call up demons and wreck their party in the cabin in the woods. They wound up possessing his hand and he had to cut it off. It was also used to send the demons back in time, but these things are delicate matters and Ash got sent back too. There he had to battle an army of the dead after convincing the primitives they should not mess with him and his boom stick.
Umm what was my point ... oh yeah, if you find a book with an ugly face on it that smells funny it is probably best to leave well enough alone. And don't play with tape recorders you don't know.

Alice had got so much into the way of expecting nothing but out-of-the-way things to happen, that it seemed quite dull and stupid for life to go on in the common way.

Does anyone here know what the Necronomicon is, or a link that explains it really well?

Christ the King--Marvellously so.
