About the Author
Joshua Free is the founder of Mardukite Ministries (2008), an organization that has continued to grow phenomenally since, and the prolific author of many works including Arcanum, Book of Elven-Faerie, The Sorcerer's Handbook of Merlyn Stone, Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible, Sumerian Religion, Babylonian Myth & Magic, Draconomicon, 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", now available in a collected works anthology with "Draconomicon" and "Druidry" titled: "The Druid Compleat" (2013). Joshua Free co-founded the Systemology division (Systemological Society) of the Mardukite Research Organization in the Spring of 2011 and authored the first four 'NexGen booklet' installments comprising "Systemology 1.0" (better known as Systemology-101), including "Human, More Than Human", "Systemology: Defragmentation", "Trans-Human Generations" and "The Games" -- all of which appear in "Awakening: Systemology-101." This work has since been complimented by the Systemology 2.0 materials released in 2013 as "Reality Engineering." Although usually best known for his Mesopotamian work emphasis on Sumerians, the Anunnaki and Babylonian Tradition for the "Mardukites", his work on the Dragon Legacy and modern Pheryllt Druid and Elven-Faerie tradition is also paramount. Recently, his writings even appeared in the third and final volume of the bestselling trilogy by Douglas Monroe, "The Deepteachings of Merlyn". Additional esoteric background: 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"-styled Druid organization in the mid-1990's at age 13, the extension of which continued to exist until 2001.

There is delightfully minimal commentary involved in the book. Editor Joshua Free includes a brief introduction to the book in general, and to each section of the book. These introductions are very economical, in that they are information intensive, yet say little which is unnecessary. In essence, they inform the reader of the context and nature of the texts introduced, and provide some frame of reference as to where the texts fit within the Mardukite tradition. There is also the fascinating and provocative foreword by Tracy Twyman, which nicely interlaces the Anunaki lore, the Cthulhu Mythos of Lovecraft, the theories of the Grail bloodline (made so popular by Brown's DaVinci Code, and before that, Baigent and Leigh's work), and the Kings of Atlantis. No demand is made upon the reader to beleive anything, but to think for oneself and be honest with oneself. The remaining content of the book consists of copious translations of ancient texts from principally Babylon and Egypt. These are incredibly informative, and are so organized as to highlight the harmonies between ancient traditions.
A word of warning, however, to the unwary reader: this Necronomicon is not an oven-ready book of conjurations and magick. Like the Simon Necronomicon, this one too is incomplete. However, the Mardukite Ministries (who issued this volume) prepared two companion volumes which complete the operative aspects of the book, in the form of a Priest's guide and a Wizard's Guide. Of course, the trilogy comprised thereby should be read and studied in order. It would be not only unwise, but actually unworkable, to jump straight to the book of magick which sits as the finale of the trilogy. It relies on comprehension and access to materials contained in the preceding books. For those not inclined to seek out the remaining books, which are available direct from the Mardukite Ministries, one will also find this volume to be very compatible with the Simon Necronomicon. (Note: the Priest's and Wizard's guides are planned for eventual release in a second hardback copy, similar to the Necronomicon itself, but for now are printed in house by the Ministry.)
I would have given this book 5 stars, which it easily deserves for content. However, there are many errors in editing, resulting in typos, as well as some printing errors in the Foreword by Twyman. These errors are not too troubling to overcome, but they remain an imperfection in the book's preparation, and as such I couldn't give it a perfect rating. The content, which is by far more important than the editorial and printing technicalities, deserve the full five stars. Thus, I dock it only one star for minor imperfections of form, as the essence is worth every penny you'll spend on this book.
Certainly, anyone interested in the history of the occult traditions, the Simon Necronomicon, or even the history of religion will find this book invaluable for its compilation of the authentic source material of many of our traditions. The only caveat to this is that the reader must be willing to displace dogma and read with an open mind in order to gain any real insight from this book. One does not need to agree with the interpretations offered, but they easily offer very worthwhile food for thought.
This book is an absolute MUST READ to anyone considering themselves a seeker of truth, but also fans of H.P. Lovecraft, and Simon!!! It is so very refreshing to see this information having been painstakingly researched from a perspective both, anthropological, and historical. The forward by the editor is absolutely amazing, as it parallels numerous pieces of information, and coalesces it all. Everything from Rosicrucians, Templars, and Masons, to the Greek and Egyptian schools of mystery. From the Bible to the New World Order. Information on Atlantis, Lemuria, and other lost civilizations of myth. From Kundalini to Cthulu, alien DNA hybrids to the alchemist Philosopher Stone.
The work is Egypto-Babylonian, delving into the traditions best documented lore from Mesopotamia of Marduk(Ra)-Son/Heir of Enki(Ptah)-Lord of the earth, the Anunaki-Sky Gods, the Igigi-Watchers, and much, much, MORE!!!
"Labels, names, and figures are man's calculations of truth. Labels create the reactive/response settings within your program, creating "files" and "copy" and "pasting" pre-existing ideas and beliefs. The Ego "downloads" additional manifestations, imageries, and artificially craeted barriers, limitations and then further isolates you to be overcome by more "worldly programming." -Necronomicon
There's a reason they call it "programming" folks!!! It is time for us to kill our televisions, snap out of it, and wake up!!!
When read with an open mind, free from the preconceived notions spawned in fear by our egos, and suspension of judgment, should you chose to cross the threshold you currently stand in front of, this book will have dramatic, life changing effects for you and all others you care about!!!
In fact, I recommend this book to anyone, and everyone struggling through life that is searching for a better way!!!
