The Necronomicon / Book of Dead Names
The Simon Necronomicon (or Simonomicon) is a grimoire which some consider the best-known version of the fictional Necronomicon. It is called the "Simon Necronomicon" because its introduction was written by a man identified only as "Simon." The book is largely based on Sumerian mythology and its introduction attempts to identify the Great Old Ones and other creatures from Lovecraft's Mythos with gods and demons from the Sumerian myths. The myths presented in the book are a blend of Mesopotamian myths (not only Sumerian, but Akkadian, Babylonian and Assyrian as well), and a storyline of unknown authenticity about a man known as the "Mad Arab."
Much of the book is a guide to magic. Many magical incantations, seals and rituals are described.
Most of these are used to ward off evil or to invoke the Elder Gods to one's aid. Some of them are curses to be used against one's enemies. The incantations are written in a mix of English and ancient Sumerian with a few possible misspellings in the Sumerian words.
The many magical seals in the book usually pertain to a particular god or demon and are used when invoking the entity. In some cases there are specific instructions on how to carve the seals, including the materials that should be used and the time of day it should be carved. In other cases, only the seal itself is given.
The book mentions in some rituals that sacrifices should be offered. In one ritual it says a human sacrifice of eleven men is needed to enchant a sword to summon Tiamat.
The introduction and the book's marketing make sensational claims for the book's magical power. The back blurb states it was "the most potent and potentially, the most dangerous Black Book known to the Western World" and that its rituals will bring "beings and monsters" into "physical appearance".
The books introduction gives readers frequent warnings that the powers it contains are potentially life threatening, and that perfect mental health is needed otherwise the book is extremely dangerous and that a curse hit those who helped publish the book. It also claims that standard magical protections and banishing will not work on the entities in the book.
Many practitioners of magic maintain that, no matter what the book's origins, the Simon Necronomicon provides a complete and workable system that can be pursued on a path of personal revelation and growth. Other magic users warn that it is dangerous, and many of the rituals it contains are corrupt or are deliberate traps which should never be attempted. There are a number of documented cases of people claiming to have been cursed by the book's power just as the book itself warns can happen.
