The Necronomicon

What are your thoughts on the Necronomicon? I know that it may be more than likely completely fake, but I’ve owned one before and there was something about it that just made me feel like there was something evil following me and messing with my mind. I have studied and practiced witchcraft before but I have never heard any feedback or any credible source tell me whether they thought it was real or not. it’d be great to hear your thoughts about it also…. your website is great!

Hello there my dear, The following is from Wikipedia about the Necronmicon…. The Necronomicon is a fictional book from the stories of horror writer H. P. Lovecraft. It was first mentioned in Lovecraft’s 1924 short story “The Hound”, written in 1922, though its purported author, the “Mad Arab” Abdul Alhazred, had been quoted a year earlier in Lovecraft’s “The Nameless City”.[1] Among other things, the work contains an account of the Old Ones, their history, and the means for summoning them. Other authors such as August Derleth and Clark Ashton Smith also cited it in their works; Lovecraft approved, believing such common allusions built up “a background of evil verisimilitude.” Many readers have believed it to be a real work, with booksellers and librarians receiving many requests for it; pranksters have listed it in rare book catalogues, and Simone Davalos (class of 2000) smuggled a card for it into the Yale University Library’s card catalog.[2] Capitalizing on the notoriety of the fictional volume, real-life publishers have printed many books entitled Necronomicon since Lovecraft’s death.

    this is a link for you rose. Lovecraft is not the true writer.

    I look into this because I also have been studying wiccan on my own time.

    Hope this is helpful.
