About the Author
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 to introduce the third volume from Douglas Monroe, "The Deepteachings of Merlyn" (published 2011).

In Draconomicon, Joshua Free describes how the idea of what we've come to know as dragons came to be. This book is more concerned with the chronicling of a history and the evolution of ideas than it is about working a system of magick. He presents many interesting ideas, but it's difficult to ascertain how concrete they may be. There are some useful nuggets that can be applied to ritual work, but on its own this book is not enough to work magick, but I don't think it was intended to be. The author was indeed apprenticed in Douglas Monroe's style of druidism, so it's no surprise to see some of his influence creep in. It's not a rip-off but an expansion on Monroe's draconic ideas. The two authors do not tread the same ground about the subject in their books.
While some of Joshua's other works go deeper into some of the ideas presented in the Draconomicon, they are not required reading to enjoy it. After getting over my initial disappointment, I have grown to like it for the supplemental ideas it includes and now consider it a worthy addition to my library. The reader should just have a better idea of what they're getting before their purchase. I hope this helps.
