About the Author
Joshua Free first began by receiving personal apprenticeships from his early years and progressing through his entire life, including various Christian Gnostics, Rosicrucians, Freemasons, members of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, O.T.O. Ordo Templi Orientis, A.A. Argentium Astrum among others. He was officially initiated into the Pheryllt Druid tradition at the age of 12 and began leading his own Gnostic Druid organization at 13. Joshua Free is the founder of Mardukite Ministries (2008) and the prolific author of many works including Sumerian Religion, Babylonian Myth & Magic, The Sorcerer's Handbook of Merlyn Stone, The Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible, and many others. In the 1990's he was the youngest initiate of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids in England until he left to independently pursue the origins of the Celtic Druids - resulting in the "Book of Elven-Faerie". Although best known for his work on Sumerians, the Anunnaki and Babylonian Tradition for the "Mardukites", his work on the Dragon Legacy and modern Pheryllt Druid tradition is also paramount. His writing has even been used in the third volume from Douglas Monroe, "The Deepteachings of Merlyn" (published 2011).
