      me any longer.
      The figures, whose faces I could not see or recognise, began to make wild passes in the
      air with knives that glinted cold and sharp in the mountain night.
      From beneath the floating rock, out of the very ground where it had sat, came rising the
      tail of a serpent. This serpent was surely larger than any I had ever seen. The thinnest
      section thereof was fully that of the arms of two men, and as it rose from the earth it was
      followed by another, although the end of the first was not seen as it seemed to reach
      down into the very Pit itself. These were followed by still more, and the ground began to
      tremble under the pressure of so many of these enormous arms. The chanting of the
      priests, for I knew them now to be the servants of some hidden Power, became much
      louder and very nearly hysterical.
      IA! IA! ZI AZAG!
      IA! IA!! ZI AZKAK!
      IA! IA! KUTULU ZI KUR!
      IA!
      The ground where I was hiding became wet with some substance, being slightly downhill
      from the scene I was witnessing. I touched the wetness and found it to be blood. In
      horror, I screamed and gave my presence away to the priests. They turned toward me, and
      I saw a loathing that they had cut their chests with the daggers they had used to raise the
      stone, for some mystical purpose I could not then divine; although I know now that blood
      is the very food of these spirits, which is why the field after the battles of war glows with
      an unnatural light, the manifestations of the spirits feeding thereon.
      May ANU protect us all!
      My scream had the effect of casting their ritual into chaos and disorder. I raced through
      the mountain path by which I had come, and the priests came running after me, although
      some seemed to stay behind, perhaps to finish the Rites. However, as I ran wildly down
      the slopes in the cold night, my heart giving rise in my chest and my head growing hot,
      the sound of splitting rocks and thunder came from behind me and shook the very ground
      I ran upon. In fright, and in haste, I fell to the earth.
      Rising, I turned to face whatever attacker had come nearest me, though I was unarmed.
      To my surprise what I saw was no priest of ancient horror, no necromancer of that
      forbidden Art, but black robes fallen upon the grass and weeds, with no seeming presence
      of life or bodies beneath them.
      I walked cautiously to the first and, picking up a long twig, lifted the robe from the tangle
      of weeds and thorns. All that remained of the priest was a pool of slime, like green oil,
      and the smell of a body lain long to rot in the sun. Such a stench nearly overpowered me,
      but I was resolute to find the others, to see if the same fortune had also befallen them.
      Walking back up the slope that I had so fearfully run down only moments ago, I came
      across yet another of the dark priests, in identical condition to the first. I kept walking,
      passing more of the robes as I went, not venturing to overturn them any longer. Then, I
      finally came upon the grey stone monument that had risen unnaturally into the air at the
      command of the priests. It now upon the ground once more, but the carvings still glowed
      with supernatural light. The serpents, or what I had then though of as serpents, had
      disappeared. But in the dead embers of the fire, now cold and black, was a shining metal
      plate. I picked it up and saw that it also was carved, as the stone, but very intricately, after
      a fashion I could not understand. I did not bear the same markings as the stone, but I had
      the feeling I could almost read the characters, but could not, as though I once knew the
      tongue but had since long forgotten. My head began to ache as though a devil was
      pounding my skull, when a shaft of moonlight struck the metal amulet, for I know now
      what it was, and a voice entered into my head and told me the secrets of the scene I had
      witnessed in one word:
      KUTULU.
      In that moment, as though whispered fiercely into my ear, I understood.
      These are the signs carved upon the grey stone, that was the Gate to the Outside:
      An this is the amulet that I held in my hand, and hold to this very day, around my neck as
      I write these words:

      Western occult history. the deities and demons identified within have probably not been
      effectively summoned in nearly six thousand years. Ordinary exorcisms and banishing
      formulae have thus far proved extremely inadequate: this, by experienced magicians.
      Hence, the following recommendations.
      The religion of the ancient Sumerian peoples seems to have been lunar-oriented, a
      religion - or religion - magickal structure - of the night, of darkness in a sense.
      Invocations using solar formulae have proved thus far effective in successfully banishing
      NECRONOMICON demons and intelligences. For instance, the Kaddish prayer of the
      Jewish faith contains some solar elements that have proved resilient to inimical genii, and
      the vibration of the Lord's Prayer for Christians is also a workable method.
      We suggest that individual operators utilise an equivalent solar (i.e., positive light)
      invocation from their own religion or the religion of their ancestors, should the no longer
      have a religion or should they have changed it in their lifetime.
      For best practical purposes in the beginning - for those intent on actually using the rituals
      contained herein - it is advisable to take especial care in the construction of the magickal
      circle and of all magickal defences. A preliminary period of purification is well in order
      before attempting anything in this grimoire. Persons of unstable mental condition, or
      unstable emotional condition, should not be allowed, under any circumstances, to observe
      one of these rituals in progress. That would be criminal, and perhaps in suicidal. One of
      our colleagues was fearfully attacked by his dog directly following a fairly simple and
      uncomplicated formula from this book. This is definitely not a Gilbert chemistry set.
      The method of the NECRONOMICON concerns deep, primeval forces that seem to preexist
      the normal archetypal images of the tarot trumps and the Golden Dawn telesmatic
      figures. These are forces that developed outside the Judeo-Christian mainstream, and
      were worshipped and summoned long before the creation of the Qabala as we know it
      today. Hence, the ineffectiveness of the Golden Dawn banishing procedures against them.
      They are not necessarily demonic or qliphotic in the sense that these terms are commonly
      understood in the West, they just simply represent power sources largely untapped and
      thus far ignored by twentieth-century, mainstream consciousness.
      The results of any experimentation with this book, as well as practical suggestions
      concerning its rituals, are welcomed by the publishers.

      THIS is the testimony of all that I have seen, and all that I have learned, in those years
      that I have possessed the Three Seals of MASSHU. I have seen One Thousand-and-One
      moons, and surely this is enough for the span of a man's life, though it is said the
      Prophets lived much longer. I am weak, and ill, and bear a great tiredness and exhaustion,
      and a sigh hangs in my breast like a dark lantern. I am old.
      The wolves carry my name in their midnight speeches, and that quiet, subtle Voice is
      summoning me from afar. And a Voice much closer will shout into my ear with unholy
      impatience. The weight of my soul will decide its final resting place. Before that time, I
      must put down here all that I can concerning the horrors that stalk Without, and which lie
      in wait at the door of every man, for this is the ancient arcana that has been handed down
      of old, but which has been forgotten by all but a few m

      THE SPELLS (TRANSLATED)
      WHERE POSSIBLE, the Editor has taken every opportunity to find the original
      Sumerian or Akkadian translation of a given Greek charm of conjuration. These will be
      given here. Also, the reader will find English translations of the Sumerian charms as they
      are given in the NECRONOMICON. Not al of the charms are available this way, and
      sometimes we have had to make do with near misses. Much of what is found here has
      come from the Maklu text, of which the only extant translation is in the German of
      Tallqvist ("Die Assyrische Beschworungsserie Maqlu nach dem originalen im British
      Museum Herausgegeben" Acta Societatis Scientiarum Fennicae, Tomm. XX, No. 6,
      Helsingforsiae mdcccxcv). The word "maklu" or "maqlu" itself is controversial, but
      Tallqvist seems to think that it does, indeed, mean "burning"; especially so as the
      incantations to be found therein invariably entail burning something, usually a doll made
      in the likeness of a witch or evil sorcerer that the magician wished to dispose of. Hence,
      we have here probably the archetype of the Great Burning Times of the Inquisition, when
      people were condemned to a fiery death as Witches and Pagans. The chant "burn, witch!
      burn!" can be found in the Maklu text, in all its pristine glory. Indeed, Cthulhu Calls.

      (Note: the original translator had noted the resemblance between the Greek word for
      Lors, kurios, and the Sumerian word for mountain, kur, and for a type of underworld,

      A WORD CONCERNING THE ORIGINAL
      MANUSCRIPT
      THE EDITOR and the Publishers anticipate that there will be a demand at first for
      privileged views of the original NECRONOMICON, whether out of curiosity's sake, or
      by nervous experimenters who will be certain that we did not copy a sigil correctly, etc.
      Let us hasten to state at this point that the original Ms. is neither the property of the
      Editor, nor the Publishers. We were given the right to translate and publish this work,
      with as much additional and explanatory material as needed, but not the right to hold the
      MS. up to public inspection. We regret that this is the case, but we also feel that it might
      be advisable, in reference to the dangerous character of the work involved. Perhaps one
      day a book will be written on the hazards of possessing such an original work in one's
      home or office, including the fearful hallucinations, physical incapacities, and emotional
      malaise that accompanied this work from the onset of the translation to the end of its final
      published form.
      Therefore, as a matter of policy, we cannot honour any requests to see the
      NECRONOMICON in its original state.
      BANISHINGS

      This is, of course, by no means a complete list but rather an inspirational sampling.
      Meditation upon the various Things mentioned in the Mythos will permit the scholar to
      draw his own conclusions; research upon the etymology of both Lovecraft's and
      Crowley's respective literature enables the occultist to discover the ancient Names and
      Numbers for much of his own, familiar, material.
      (Note: that Lovecraft may have head or Crowley is hinted at darkly in his short story
      "The Thing On The Doorstep" in which he refers to a cult leader from England who had
      established a covenstead of sorts in New York. In that story, published in Weird Tales in
      1936, the cult leader is closely identified with chthonic forces, is described as
      "notorious", and linked to the strange fate that befell the protagonist, Edward Derby.)

      NOTES ON PRONUNCIATION
      WE CANNOT BE absolutely how Sumerian and Akkadian were spoken; but many useful
      guidelines are available to the student, including the transliterated tablets found all over
      Mesopotamia. Basically, we can offer the following principles which should prove of
      value in reciting the foreign language instructions :
      Vowels
      a
      as in "father"
      e
      as in "whey"
      i
      as in "antique"
      o
      as in "boat" (but rarely found)
      u
      as in "zulu"
      Consonants
      Most are basically the same as in English. The Sumerians did not have an alphabet as we
      know it, but they had developed a syllabary, very much like the Japanese "Kana" script of
      today. In phonetic transliterations, the English spelling sought to approximate the
      Sumerian pronunciation. However, there are a few sounds which English does not
      possess, and which have been put into phonetic variations. Important examples below :
      X
      as in the German "ach"
      CH
      (same as above)
      Q
      as in "like"
      K
      (same as above)
      SH
      as in "shall"
      SS
      as in, perhaps, "lasso"; a hissing "s" common to Arabic languages
      Z
      as in "lots"; a hard "ts" sound, not quite as in "zoo"
      Remember, in the transliterations which follow, every letter must be pronounced. There
      are no schwas or silent syllables in Sumerian. Hence, "KIA" is pronounced "keeya";
      "KAIMANU" is pronounced "ka-ee-mah-nu" or, if spoken rapidly, the two initial vowel
      sounds slur into 'kigh' rhyming with "high"
      The incantations should be said carefully and slowly at first, to familiarise oneself with
      the tongue-twisting phrases. A mistake may prove fatal to the Work

      are all voices crying in that wilderness of madness that men call Society, and as such
      were ostracised, stoned, and deemed mentally unfit for life. But, for them, Justice will
      come when we have realised that the Ship of State and the Ship of St Peter have become

      PREFATORY NOTES
      THE PRESENT MANUSCRIPT was delivered into the hands of the Editor by a priest
      who had managed to get ordained through uncanonical methods which have been
      entertainingly described in the several books and articles on the ecclesiastic phenomenon,
      the "wandering bishops". Just such an "unorthodox" prelate was Fr. Montague Summers,
      who wrote numerous books on demonology, witchcraft, and the like. Suffice it to say, we
      were rather doubtful as to the authenticity of the work before us. In the first place, it was
      in Greek and for quite awhile it was difficult to ascertain what it might actually be, save
      for the title NECRONOMICON and the many weird drawings. In the second place, after
      translation, we found several internal inconsistencies and some evidence that would
      suggest we did not possess the entire Work. There may still be some missing or the
      irregular monastic might have withheld certain of the chapters. As the chapters are not
      numbered, it is too difficult to day.
      A great deal of misfortune accompanied the publication of this book. First, we went
      through more than one translator. The last finally absconded with his preface, describing
      his work in the some detail. This, we will have to do from memory in the following
      pages. At one point, an unscrupulous publisher from the West Coast took a copy of the
      initial preface and some of the miscellaneous pages in translation (including some
      dummies, which we were in the habit of giving potential publishers for our protection)
      and went off, and has not been heard from again.
      At a crucial stage in the preparation of the manuscript, the Editor was stricken with a
      collapsed lung and had to undergo emergency surgery to save his life.
      But, let us proceed with a description of the contents of the NECRONOMICON:
      Within these pages a series of myths and rituals are presented that have survive the
      darkest days of magick and occultism. The exorcisms and bindings of the famous Maqlu
      text are here presented for the first time in English, although not completely: for the
      originals in their entirety were evidently not known to the author of the
      NECRONOMICON, nor are they to present scholarship; the various tablets upon which
      they were written being cracked and effaced in many places, rendering translation
      impossible. The MAGAN text, which comprises the Creation Epic of the Sumerians
      (with much later glosses) and the account of INANNA's "descent into the Underworld",
      along with more extraneous matter, is presented. The unique "Book of the Entrance" has
      no counterpart in occult literature, and the drawings of magickal seals and symbols are
      wholly new to anything that has yet appeared on the contemporary occult scene -
      although bearing some resemblances to various diagrams found in the ancient Arabic
      texts of the last millennium. Although some of the characters found in these pages can be
      traced to Mandaic and Demotic sources, and are evidently of a much later date than the
      Rites of Sumer, the overall appearance of the seals is quite unusual, almost surreal.
      The Book begins with an introduction by the alleged author, the Mad Arab (the name that
      Lovecraft made famous, 'Abdul Alhazred' does not appear in our copy of the Ms.), and
      ends with a sort of epilogue by the same Arab. We have called the first part "The
      Testimony of the Mad Arab" and the latter "The Testimony of the Mad Arab, the Second
      Part." The Second Part if the most chilling. The author has, by this stage in the writing of
      his opus, become fearful for his soul and begins to repeat himself in the text, saying
      things he has already said in previous chapters as though having forgotten he had said
      them, or perhaps to stress their importance. The Second Testimony is riddled through
      with non sequiturs and bits of incantation.
      He does not finish the Book.
      It trails off where he would have signed it, presumably, in the Arab manner, but giving
      his lineage. Instead, it ends before he can name himself or even one relation. We can only
      imagine with horror what fate befell this noble Sage.
      Another problem that confronts the Editor is the suspected frequency of the copyist's
      glosses; that is, there do seem to be occasionally bits of sentence or fragments of
      literature that would seem to be inconsistent with the period in which the text was
      written. However, no final word can be said on this matter. The difficulty arises in the
      age-old question of "which came first, the chicken or the egg?". For instance, in the
      MAGAN text, the final verses read though from the Chaldean Oracles of Zoroaster:
      "Stoop not down, therefore, into the darkly shining world," which might have been of
      Greek origin and not Zoroastrian. It is a question for scholars.
      The etymology of certain words is a game that has fascinated both the Editor and perhaps
      a score or more of Sumerian researches of the past. The Sumerian origin of many of the
      words and place-names we use today provides us with an insight into our own origins.
      For instance, the Sumerian word for the temple is BAR, from which we get our word
      "barrier", or so it is said by Waddell. This makes sense in the context with the erecting
      and maintaining of barriers against the hostile forces Outside.
      The etymology is even dramatic where Magick is concerned, and aids us in understand
      even Crowley's system better than we do. As an example, Crowley of (or Aiwass) ends
      the Book of the Law with the words "AUM.HA." In the Sumero-Aryan Dictionary by
      Waddell we read that the word AUM was known to the Sumerians, in almost the same
      sense that it was, and is, known to the Hindus. It is a sacred word, a

      As a matter of fact, a certain type of devil worship did exist during those times but,
      ironically, the acolytes of Hell were usually never brought to trial; something which
      stems from the fact that many of those who celebrated and attended the infamous Black
      Masses of the period were Roman Catholic clergymen, many of whom has been pressed
      into His Service at a young age by their parents, who wished to see their sons brought up
      well-fed and educated in those uncertain times, where the Church was the sole power and
      refuge. The frustration at being "condemned" to a life that demanded the abandonment of
      society and a "normal" life led many priests to express their hostilities through the Office
      of the Demon, the Black Mass. Often, this was also a means of political demonstration, as
      the Church controlled virtually all the political life of the period. In a way, as though in a
      test tube at a philosophical laboratory, Aleister Crowley was brought up under similar
      circumstances - although ver far removed in time from the days of the Church's immense
      temporal power. Coming from a fanatically religious Christian family, and suddenly
      freed upon the neighbourhood of Cambridge, Crowley did, in a sense, turn Satanist. He
      identified strongly with the underdog, politically as well as spiritually, and came
      eventually to take the Name of the Beast as his own, and expound a philosophy that he
      hoped would rip apart the worn tapestry of the established moral Christian atmosphere of
      Victorian England, and expose it for what it really was, a carpet made of many ingenious
      threads and not God - or eternal happiness - at all; only nap.
      Therefore, it seemed almost logical that he should seek in the defeated, Old Religions of
      the world for the basis of his new philosophy and, some say, his new "religion". He
      raised the female aspect back up to one of equality with the male, as it was in the rites of
      Egypt, and of Eleusis. "Our Lady Babalon" (his spelling) became a theme of many of his
      magickal writings, and he received he Credo, the Book of the Law, through a Woman, his
      wife Rose Kelly. The lunar element, as well as the Venusian, are certainly accessible in
      his works. It has even been said in occult circles that he had a hand in putting together the
      grimoire of one Gerald Gardner, founder of a contemporary Witchcraft movement, called
      the Book of Shadows.
      The Moon has an extremely important, indeed indispensable, role in the tantrick sex
      magick rites that so preoccupied Crowley and the O.T.O. There can be no true magick
      without woman, nor without man, and in the symbolic language of the occult there can be
      no Sun without the Moon. In alchemy, ceremonial magick, and Witchcraft, the formula is
      the same, for they all deal with identical properties; whether they are called the Sun and
      Moon of the Elixir Vitae, the male and female participants in a rite of Indian or Chinese
      tantricism, or the Shadow and the Anima of Jungian depth psychology.
      For many years, the Moon remained the prime deity of the Sumerians, constituting the
      essential Personum of a religious and mystical drama that was performed roughly 3000
      B.C. amid the deserts and marshes of Mesopotamia. Side by side with the worship of the
      Moon, NANNA, there was fear of the Demon, PAZUZU, a genie so amply recreated in
      the book and the movie by Blatty, The Exorcist, and similarly recognised as the Devil
      Himself by the Church. PAZUZU, the Beast, was brought to life by Aleister Crowley,
      and the Demon walked the Earth once more.
      With publicity provided by H.P. Lovecraft.
      The Devil
      PAZUZU was a prime example of the type of Devil of which the Sumerians were
      particularly aware, and which they depicted constantly in their carvings and statues. The
      purpose of this iconography was to ward off the spiritual - and psychic - circumstances
      which would precipitate a plague, or some other evil. "Evil to destroy evil." Although the
      ancient people of the world were conscious of an entity we might call the :Author of all
      Evil", the Devil or Satan, as evident in the Sumerian Creation Epic and the rumoured
      existences of the Cult of Set of the Egyptians, the more pressing concern was usually the
      exorcism of TIAMAT, she exists, somehow, just as the Abyss exists and is perhaps
      indispensable to human life if we think of Her as typifying the female quality of Energy.
      Although MARDUK was responsible for halving the Monster from the Sea, the Sumerian
      Tradition has it that the Monster is not dead, but dreaming, asleep below the surface of
      the Earth, strong, potent, dangerous, and very real. her powers can be tapped by the
      knowledgeable, "who are skilful to rouse Leviathan."
      Although the Christian religion has gone to great lengths to prove that the Devil is
      inferior to God and exists solely for His purpose, as the Tempter of Man - surely a
      dubious raison d'etre - the Sumerian Tradition acknowledges that the Person of "Evil" is
      actually the oldest, most Ancient of the Gods. Whereas Christianity states that Lucifer
      was a rebel in heaven, and fell from God's grace to ignominy below, the original story
      was that MARDUK was the rebel, and severed the Body of the Ancient of Ancient Ones
      to create the Cosmos in other words, the precise reverse of the Judeo-Christian dogma.
      The Elder Gods evidently possessed a certain Wisdom that was not held by their Parents,
      yet their Parents held the Power, the Primal Strength, the First Magick, that the Elder
      Ones tapped to their own advantage, for they were begotten of Her.
      It generally accepted in the Halls of Magick that all of the Wisdom in the world is useless
      without the necessary adjunct of Power. This Power has gone by many names, as the
      Goddess and the Devil have, but the Chinese symbolise It by the Dragon. It is the force of
      Will, and relies heavily upon the biochemical matter that makes up the human body, and
      hence, the human consciousness, to give it existence. Science is coming around to accept
      the fact that the Will does exist, just at the point where Psychology has determined it does
      not - in the behaviourists vain attempt to eradicate what has alway

      The Witches of today, however, while acknowledging the importance of the Male
      element of telluric Power, generally prefer to give the greater honour to the Female
      Principle, personified as the Goddess. The Goddess has also been worshipped all over the
      world, and under many names, but is still essentially the same Goddess. That TIAMAT
      was undoubtedly female is to the point; and that the Chinese as well as the Sumerians
      perceived of two dragon currents, male and female, gives the researchers a more complex
      picture. The Green Dragon and the Red Dragon of the alchemists are thus identified, as
      the positive and negative energies that compromise the cosmos of our perception, as
      manifest in the famous Chinese yin-yang symbol.
      But what of INANNA, the single planetary deity having a female manifestation among
      the Sumerians? She is invoked in the NECRONOMICON and identified as the
      vanquisher of Death, for she descended into the Underworld and defeated her sister, the
      Goddess of the Abyss, Queen ERESHKIGAL (possibly another name for TIAMAT).
      Interestingly enough, the myth has many parallels with the Christian concept of Christ's
      death and resurrection, among which the Crucifixion (INANNA was impaled on a stake
      as a corpse), the three days in the Sumerian Hades, and the eventual Resurrection are
      outstanding examples of how Sumerian mythology previewed the Christian religion by
      perhaps as many as three thousand years - a fact that beautifully illustrates the cosmic and
      eternal nature of this myth.
      Therefore, the Goddess of the Witches has two distinct forms: the Ancient One, Goddess
      of the Dragon-like telluric Power which is raised in Magickal rituals, and the Elder
      Goddess, Defeater of Death, who brings the promise of Resurrection and Rejuvenation to
      her followers those who must reside for a time after death and between incarnations in
      what is called the "Summerland".
      Sumer-land?
      Another hallmark of the Craft of the Wise is evident within the NECRONOMICON, as
      well as in general Sumerian literature, and that is the arrangement of the cross-quarter
      days, which make up half of the Craft's official pagan holidays. These occur on the eves
      of February 2nd, May 1st, August 1st, and November 1st, and are called Candlemas,
      Beltane, Lammas and Samhain (or Hallows), respectively.
      The name Lammas has a curious origin in the dunes at Sumer. It is not less than the name
      of one of the four mythological Beasts of the astrological fixed signs, Lamas being the
      name of the half-lion, half-man Guardian of Leo (the sign governing most of August,
      when the feast of Lammas takes place), and USTUR being that of Aquarius (February),
      SED that of Taurus (May) and NATTIG that of Scorpio (November). I do not believe that
      this is a fantastic assumption, the Sumerian origin of the Feast of Lammas. Indeed, it
      seems just as valid as the ideas of Idries Shah concerning Craft etymology as presented in
      his book, The Sufis. It is also not far-fetched to assume that these four beasts were known
      to the entire region of the Middle East, as they appear on the Sphinx in Egypt, and have
      become the symbols of the Four Evangelists of the Christian New Testament - an ironic
      and splendid result of the ignorance of the Greek religious historians concerning the
      ancient mysteries!
      Probable the most inconsistent concept the Sumerians possesses with reference to the
      Craft is the naming of the Goddess as a deity, not of the Moon (as the Craft would have
      it), but of the planet Venus. The Moon was governed by a male divinity, NANNA (like
      INANNA but minus the initial 'I'), and was considered the Father of the Gods by the
      earliest Sumerian religion. It should be noted, however, that all of the planetary deities,
      termed "the zoned Ones" or zonei in Greek, and indeed all of the Sumerian deities, had
      both male and female manifestations, showing that the Sumerians definitely recognised a
      yin-yang composition if the universe (the "male Moon" idea is, the Editor is given to
      understand, common to so-called Aryan mythologies). There is also evidence to show
      that every god and goddess also had both a good and an evil nature, and evil gods were
      banished in the exorcism formulae of that civilisation as well as the lesser forms of
      demon.
      The Horned Moon
      As mentioned, the God of the Moon was called NANNA by the Sumerians. By the later
      Sumerians and Assyrians, he was called SIN. In both cases, he was the Father of the
      Gods (of the planetary realm, the zonei), and was depicted as wearing horns, a symbol
      familiar to the Witches as representative of their God. The horn shaped crown is
      illustrative of the crescent phases of the Moon, and were symbolic of divinity in many
      cultures around the world, and were also thought to represent certain animals who were
      horned, and worshipped for their particular qualities, such as the goat and bull. They also
      represent sexual power.
      The fact that, in ancient Sumeria and Egypt, horns were solely representative of evil
      gods, but of many different deities, was used by the Christian Church in their attempt to
      eradicate pagan faiths. It was a simple enough symbol to identify with the Author of Evil,
      Satan, which the Church depicted as a half-animal, half-human creature with horns,
      claws, and sometimes a tail. The Church's use of the horns as a sort of archetype of Evil
      is quite similar to the feeling many people have today with regards to the swastika used
      by the Nazis, a symbol which has become the archetype of an evil sigil in the West. The
      fact that it is a highly valued mystical and religious symbol in the East is something that
      is not well-known. What is worse, the image of the Devil as perpetrated by the Church is
      simultaneously representative of sexual energy, and can be safely compared to Jung's
      archetype of the Shadow, the psychic repository of a man's innate maleness, as the anima
      represents that part of a man which is feminine. Truly, the pictures painted of a Satanic
      ritual by the pious Catholic clergymen was one of sexual orgies and "perversions", and

      Coptic is the name given to the Egyptian God of Magick and Wisdom, TAHUTI, who
      was evoked by both the Golden Dawn and by Crowley himself (and known to the Greeks
      as Hermes, from whence we get "Hermetic"). AZAG-THOTH is, therefore, a Lord of
      Magicians, but of the "Black" magicians, or the sorcerers of the "Other Side".
      There is a seeming reference to SHUB NIGGURATH in the NECRONOMICON, in the
      name of a Sumerian deity, the "Answerer of Prayers", called ISHNIGARRAB. The word
      "Shub" is to be found in the Sumerian language in reference to the Rite of Exorcism, one
      of which is called Nam Shub and means "the Throwing". It is, however, as yet unclear as
      to what the combination SHUB ISHNIGARRAB (SHUB NIGGURATH) might actually
      mean.
      There was a battle between the forces of "light" and "darkness" (so-called) that took place
      long before man was created, before even the cosmos as we know it existed. It is
      described fully in the Enuma Elish and in the bastardised version found in the
      NECRONOMICON, and involved the Ancient Ones, led by the Serpent MUMMUTIAMAT
      and her male counterpart ABSU, against the ELDER GODS (called such in the
      N.) led by the Warrior MARDUK, son of the Sea God ENKI, Lord of Magicians of this
      Side, or what could be called "White Magicians" - although close examination of the
      myths of ancient times makes one pause before attempting to judge which of the two
      warring factions was "good" or "evil". MARDUK won this battle - in much the same way
      that later St. George and St. Michael would defeat the Serpent again - the cosmos was
      created from the body of the slain Serpent, and man was created from the blood of the
      slain commander of the Ancient Army, KINGU, thereby making man a descendent of the
      Blood of the Enemy, as well as the "breath" of the Elder Gods; a close parallel to the
      "sons of God and daughters of men" reference in the Old Testament. Yet, though the
      identity of the Victor is clear, there were - and are - certain persons and organisations that
      dared side with the vanquished, believing the Ancient Ones to be a source of tremendous,
      and most unbelievable, power.
      Worship of the Ancient Ones in History
      "Let them curse it that curse the day, who are skilful to rouse Leviathan." - JOB
      3:8
      S.H. Hooke, in his excellent Middle Eastern Mythology, tells us that the Leviathan
      mentioned in JOB, and elsewhere in the Old Testament, is the Hebrew name given to the
      Serpent TIAMAT, and reveals that there was in existence either a cult, or scattered
      individuals, who worshipped or called up the Serpent of the Sea, or Abyss. Indeed, the
      Hebrew word for Abyss that is found in GENESIS 1:2 is, Hooke tells us, tehom, which
      the majority of scholars take to be a survival of the name of the chaos-dragon TIAMAT
      or Leviathan that is identified closely with KUTULU or Cthulhu within the pages are
      mentioned independently of each other, indicating that somehow KUTULU is the male
      counterpart of TIAMAT, similar to ABSU.
      This monster is well known to cult worship all over the world. In China, however, there
      is an interesting twist. Far from being considered a completely hostile creature, dedicated
      to the erasure of mankind from the page of existence, the Dragon is given a place of preeminence
      and one does not hear of a Chinese angel or saint striving to slay the dragon,
      but rather to cultivate it. The Chinese system of geomancy, feng shui (pronounced fung
      shway) is the science of understanding the "dragon currents" which exist beneath the
      earth, these same telluric energies that are distilled in such places as Chartres Cathedral in
      France, Glastonbury Tor in England, and the Ziggurats of Mesopotamia. In both the
      European and Chinese cultures, the Dragon or Serpent is said to reside somewhere
      "below the earth"; it is a powerful force, a magickal force, which is identified with
      mastery over the created world; it is also a power that can be summoned by the few and
      not the many. However, in China, there did not seem to be a backlash of fear or
      resentment against this force as was known in Europe and Palestine, and the symbol of
      might and kingship in China is still the Dragon. In the West, the conjuration, cultivation,
      or worship of this Power was strenuously opposes with the advent of the Solar,
      Monotheistic religions and those who clung to the Old Ways were effectively
      extinguished. The wholesale slaughter of those called "Witches" during the Inquisition is
      an example of this, as well as the solemn and twisted - that is to say, purposeless and
      unenlightened - celibacy that the Church espoused. For the orgone of Wilhelm Reich is
      just as much Leviathan as the Kundalini of Tantrick adepts, and the Power raised by the
      Witches. It has always, at least in the past two thousand years, been associated with
      occultism and essentially with Rites of Evil Magick, or the Forbidden Magick, of the
      Enemy, and of Satan . . .
      . . . and the twisting, sacred Spiral formed by the Serpent of the Caduceus, and by the
      spinning of the galaxies, is also the same Leviathan as the Spiral of the biologists' Code
      of Life : DNA
      The Goddess of the Witches
      The current revival of the cult called WICCA is a manifestation of the ancient secret
      societies that sought to tap this telluric, occult force and use it to their own advantage,
      and to the advantage of humanity as was the original intent. The raising of the Cone of
      Power through the circle dancing is probably the simplest method of attaining results in
      "rousing Leviathan", and has been used by societies as diverse as the Dervishes in the
      Middle East and the Python Dancers of Africa, not to mention the round dances that were
      familiar to the Gnostic Christians, and the ones held every year in the past at Chartres.

      that of Sanskrit (and, it is said, to Chinese!).
      For no one knows where the Sumerians came from, and they vanished just as
      mysteriously as they appeared, after the Assyrian invasions which decimated their
      culture, yet providing the Assyrians with much of their mythology and religion; so much
      so that Sumerian became the official language of the state church, much as Latin is today
      of the Roman Catholic Church. They had a list of their kings before the Flood, which
      even they carefully chronicled, as did many another ancient civilisation around the world.
      It is believed that they had a sophisticated system of astronomy (and astrology) as well as
      an equally religious rituale. Magick, as well in history, begins at Sumer for the Western
      World, for it his here, in the sand-buried cuneiform tablets that recorded an Age, that the
      first Creation Epic is found, the first exorcism, the first ritual invocations of planetary
      deities, the first dark summonings of evil Powers, and ironically, the first "burnings" of
      people the anthropologists call "Witches".
      Lovecraft's mythos deals with what are known chthonic deities, that is, underworld gods
      and goddesses, much like the Leviathan of the Old Testament. The pronunciation of
      chthonic is 'katonic', which explains Lovecraft's famous Miskatonic River and
      Miskatonic University, not to mention the chief deity of his pantheon, Cthulhu, a sea
      monster who lies, "not dead, but dreaming" below the world; an Ancient One and
      supposed enemy of Mankind and the intelligent Race. Cthulhu is accompanied by an
      assortment of other grotesqueries, such as Azathot and Shub Niggurath. It is of extreme
      importance to occult scholars that many of these deities had actual counterparts, at least
      in name, to deities of the Sumerian Tradition, that same Tradition that the Magus Aleister
      Crowley deemed it so necessary to "rediscover".
      The Underworld in ancient Sumer was known by many names, among them ABSU or
      "Abyss", sometimes as Nar Mattaru, the great Underworld Ocean, and also as Cutha or
      KUTU as it is called in the Enuma Elish (the Creation Epic of the Sumerians). The
      phonetic similarity between Cutha and KUTU and Chthonic, as well as Cthulhu, is
      striking. Judging by a Sumerian grammar at hand, the word KUTULU or Cuthalu
      (Lovecraft's's Cthulhu Sumerianised) would mean "The Man of KUTU (Cutha); the Man
      of the Underworld; Satan or Shaitan, as he is known to the Yezidis (whom Crowley
      considered to be the remnants of the Sumerian Tradition). The list of similarities, both
      between Lovecraft's creations and the Sumerian gods, as well as between Lovecraft's
      mythos and Crowley's magick, can go on nearly indefinitely, and in depth, for which
      there is no space here at present. An exhaustive examination of Crowley's occultism in
      light of recent findings concerning Sumeria, and exegesis on Lovecraft's stories, is
      presently in preparation and is hoped to be available shortly. Until that time, a few
      examples should suffice.
      Although a list is appended hereto containing various entities and concepts of Lovecraft,
      Crowley, and Sumeria cross-referenced, it will do to show how the Editor found
      relationships to be valid and even startling. AZATOT is frequently mentioned in the grim
      pages of the Cthulhu Mythos, and appears in the NECRONOMICON as AZAG-THOTH,
      a combination of two words, the first Sumerian and the second Coptic, which gives us a
