About this product
- DescriptionThe Gates of the Necromicon is ather important and invaluable companion book to the Necro. To properly utilise the magick of the Necro, an occultist must decipher the deep complex world that the Mad Arab describes, and for many a reader, the complexity and nuance are overwhelming. Here Simon gives a detailed and compelling history of the importance of the constellations, especially the Big Dipper - the Bear constellation. Ancient cultures from Asia, Africa and South America all have myths that point to the importance of the Bear constellation, and Simon convincingly argues that this universal ackwledgment suggests that this constellation is deeply rooted in the origin of the human race. Hence the importance of the location of the Bear constellation in the night sky for the efficacy of the spells found in the Necro. This book will be an invaluable resource for practitioners of the occult for years to come.
- Author BiographySimon is a student of magic, occultism, and religion since the mid-1960s and the editor of the Necronomicon, Simon was a frequent lecturer for the famed Warlock Shop in Brooklyn and the Magickal Childe Bookstore in Manhattan for more than ten years before his sudden disappearance in 1984, speaking on topics as diverse as religion and politics, occultism and fascism, ceremonial magic, demonolatry, the Tarot, the Qabala, and Asian occult systems. He also conducted private classes for the New York City OTO during this period, with a focus on Enochian magic, Owandering bishops, and Afro-Caribbean occult beliefs. An ordained priest of an Eastern Orthodox church, Simon has appeared on television and radio discussing such topics as exorcism, satanism, and Nazism. The media events he organized in the 1970s and 1980s -- with rock bands, ritual performances, and celebrity appearances -- helped to promote the occult renaissance in New York City. After decades of study in European, Asian, and Latin American cult centers, this book marks his first public appearance in more than twenty years.
