Sorry, but after lurking in the shadows of ATS I have to post something on this;

The book doesn't exist (as many have said), but the idea of a book like this could exist. Please let me explain:

The idea of finding a "Lost Book of Wisdom" out in the desert is very possible. Many nomatic tribes in the Arabian Desert hide books that have been past down for 100s of years within a clan. Some of these books pre-date the rise of Islam in Arabia (so yes they are very old books out in the desert)

Due to the nature of these little known religons (at the time), a person who came across one of these books may have misunderstood the contents of what they have found.

While the idea of using a recurring mystery book wasn't exclusive to Lovecraft (look up "The King in Yellow") His short stories seem to have hit a nerve better than any other writer has.

I think thats the biggest mystery about it is, "Why does this one non-book affect so many people the way it does?"

Thank you for reading.

You are welcome.

Yes, you've got it. I like to think that that is what this whole thread is about. It does not provide many answers but I think that it concentrates the subject in such a way that we might be able to see something we have not in relation to your question, or maybe see the same stuff, only more clearly and in more detail.

There are some pretty funky posts on this thread, I hope you'll take the time to check them all out.

Thanks for stopping by,

X.

I would like to share an experience regarding this since you are looking for anecdotal evidence...

I found the Simon Necronomicon as a young man, interested in the occult sciences.
I had planned on doing some of the rituals, but couldn't figure out what the heck ouroboros was.

Now I had spent a few days reading this book and it was giving me a very strong 'deja-vu' kind of feeling.
So I awake in the middle of the night from my sleep to find a very tall black humanoid standing in my doorway looking at me.
It was kind of skinny looking, but extremely ripped/muscular, its eyes were pure blackness...
The next thing I know I am spinning around in circles with it inside my head, I felt that it was trying to possess me.
At this point all my fear turned to anger and I cast it out, back to the hell from which it spawned.
I woke up, very very shaken, and started drawing crosses all over the place (which was extremely odd since I wasn't a christian).
I was a little scared of the dark after this, but it didn't last.

Whether the book is 'real' or imagined doesn't matter so much. I never believed some intradimensional being would come visit me, let alone try to possess me. I was careful in reading the book though, that I never spoke aloud any of the words, and was careful to try not utter any of them inside my head when reading.

I wouldn't say this ruined my life, or that demons have haunted me ever since, I'm simply more aware of them and how they interact with humanity on a world-scale as a result of my experiences (including those not discussed here). I think demons (or intradimensional beings) have always been around feeding off of us, but in my opinion this book can bring it out into the open instead of having it hiding behind the scenes and it may attract worse beings into your life or more of them....didn't call him the mad arab for no reason


And thanks to whomever shared the Marilyn Manson vid, it was an interesting story.

This post is getting necroed and im new and all but I just wanted to share my experiences. As a young man (read: stupid kid) I was getting all into exploring magic and occult stuff and did pick up a copy of the necronomicon (SN) from a bookstore. I tried reading it, i recognized the sumerian things but didnt know much about lovecraft. anyway even though the book warned not to reproduce any of the drawings i did it anyway reproducing the weird mark from the cover. I guess i did it right since if i didnt, the book said id go mad and eat myself or something. i am thus far non eaten though i did have and continue to have emotional issues but i dont think theyre linked in all honesty. anyway. toward the end of last year i purchased from kindle a praduct called the complete works of h.p. lovecraft for about a dollar. the table of contents is a mess but there is a lot of stuff there. i liked it all very much and i think i have read all of it or very nearly all of it. like i said, the table of contents is hard to find so i read scattered works and am not sure what i have missed yet but ive read all the big things - meaning all the books with multiple chapters and a great deal of the shorter things. earlier this week though as i was looking through it again, i noticed some letters of correspondence between lovecraft and contemporaries and other folks, and noticed that the writing style and matter of fact "flavor" of the way he wrote letters is also evident in the 'short story' "the history of the necronomicon"

Sounds like Nyarlathotep.




In "The Dreams in the Witch House" (1933), Nyarlathotep appears to Walter Gilman and witch Keziah Mason (who has made a pact with the entity) in the form of "the 'Black Man' of the witch-cult," a black-skinned avatar of the Devil described by witch hunters.

Thanks for digging this thing up, i love Lovecraft and the Necronomicon. It is purely fiction, but kind of as in all of lovecrafts stories you find hints towards his depressed, xenophobic personality, while he also shares a lot of early "Babylonian" research, mixed a bit with egyptology, it is just beautiful, because the Necronomicon mirrors this, to a certain degree.
Magic also works a lot with symbols, math and astrology. Whatever meaning you give it, you will receive the echo, depending on how tight the web is you spin with it. When your logic and your intuition agree, your physical world will follow. Sort of. I am not making a very good point. And it won't help anyone summoning fire-balls. No movie magic. And as in all of lovecraftian works it's creepy, because it causes subtile echoes.
