The magic of the Necronomicon is based on dreams, visions and transmissions from planes and dimensions beyond the world as we know it, channeled and earthed by sensitive individuals. The power of this mythical tome lies in its intangibility and mysteriousness - it is a book with limitless potential, a volume that has never been completed and is continuously writing itself through the hands of those who receive its gnosis. "Necronomicon Gnosis: A Practical Introduction" thoroughly explores this magical tradition, discussing the lore of the Cthulhu Mythos from the perspective of a practitioner, providing applicable methods of work, both for beginners and advanced magicians. It presents basic magical concepts and techniques of their practical use within the context of the Necronomicon Gnosis: pacts and ceremonies, astral journeys, dream magic, scrying and travelling through gateways to interstellar dimensions, evocations, invocations, sex magic, self-initiation, shape-shifting, necromancy, the art of sacrifice, and many others. These techniques allow for a shift of consciousness in which we are able to experience the energies of the Great Old Ones that are normally inaccessible to our mundane perception. These primal beings, ever-changing and mutable, represent the evolutionary potential of the human mind - what we may become if we manage to transgress the limitations of human nature. First published in 2007, the original version of the book has been revised, expanded and updated. New chapters were added, containing texts and rituals previously published in various journals and magazines, as well as completely new, unpublished essays and practices.

Scales of the Serpent draws its primary inspiration from Kenneth Grantís Nightside of Eden and the exploration of those realms analogous to what Michael Bertiaux refers to as Universe B.
The book comprises the sigils of the cells of the qliphoth from Liber CCXXXI (with commentary) presented in a form intended to facilitate meditation and visionary work in accessing the back of the Tree of Life, the nightside, which prior to Grantís work had been ignored or denied.
A separate and substantial text explores threads leading towards the void which is the gateway to the reverse of the Tree, that noumenal nothing of which the phenomenal something is but the illusory reversed reflection, and gives some indications as to the methods employed and routes taken by earlier explorers, intentionally or otherwise.
These particular threads have been picked up and followed as a result of the authorís workings within the Ordo Typhonis and, more specifically within the Lamal Lodge.
Many avoid meditation because of its religious trappings. But as bestselling atheist Sam Harris has recently written (in Waking Up), meditation is an age-old secular practice with numerous scientifically verified physical and psychological benefits.
