The Gregorius Necronomicon


Published in Germany and German, titled Das Necronomicon: Nach den Aufzeichnungen von Gregor A. Gregorius (The Necronomicon: From the Transcription of Gregor A. Gregorius), this is simply a translation of the Simon Necronomicon. The volume also includes a German translation of an authentic mediaeval grimoire called the Goetia; or, the Lesser Keys of King Solomon.


The Quine Necronomicon


The purported translation of the Necronomicon made by Antonius Quine appears to be so fake it doesn't even exist.

However, if you have any information on please contact me:


The Ripel Necronomicon


This was published by one Frank G. Ripel, who is head of the Ordo Rosae Mysticae (Order of the Mystic Rose), in Italy, 1987-88, as part of his Sabaean Trilogy. It includes a book called Sauthenerom, of ancient Egyptian origins, and a text of the Necronomicon, which is alleged to be 4,000 years old and to have been plagiarized by Abdul Alhazred.

A description of this volume by Luis Abbadie resides at Daniel Harms' excellent Necronomicon Files Page.


The Perez-Vigo Necronomicon


Recently published in Spain, this edition by Fernando Perez-Vigo reputedly includes a Necronomic Tarot along with a text derived from those of the Ripel Necronomicon and the Wilson-Hay-Turner-Langford Necronomicon.

I have been unable to obtain any information on the Perez-Vigo Necronomicon, including whether or not it truly even exists. If you have any such information (especially if you know where I might obtain a copy), please contact me:


The Lin Carter Necronomicon


"If the Necronomicon actually existed, it would be out in Bantam paperback
with a preface by Lin Carter.
-- T.E.D. Klein

Lin Carter wrote several short stories which purport to be chapters from the John Dee translation of the Necronomicon. They relate various adventures of Abdul Alhazred. Obviously and explicitly fiction, this is only included here for completeness.

Lin Carter's version is included in a volume available from Chaosium, edited by Robert M. Price and entitled The Necronomicon: Selected Stories and Essays Concerning the Blasphemous Tome of the Mad Arab, containing sundry works of interest.

Chaosium Press.


The H.R. Giger Necronomicon


Swiss surrealist H.R. Giger has used the title Necronomicon for a book compiling his necrotic art. Obviously, this makes no claim to be an authentic Necronomicon, but we include the entry not only for completeness, but as a pretext to enthusiastically endorse Giger's art. Giger has also produced a sequel volume, Necronomicon II.

The Necronomicon Project


This is a collaborative effort to create a fake Necronomicon on the Web. There is clearly no attempt to claim validity for the results of this project.

You too can participate: The Necronomicon Project.


The Charles Pace Necronominon


Leroy Green's article "Shaman or Showman? Alex Sanders, 'King of the Witches'" (Rapid Eye #2 contains the following information:

One of the show's writers later told me that [Dennis] Wheatley was "terrified" of Sanders and had as little to do with him as possible, except for joining in the discussion on the show. During it, Sanders produced a wax image which he called a "fith-fath", and proceeded to stick pins in it. He announced that the image had been consecrated to represent a man named Charles Pace, with whom Sanders had had some sort of dispute. Twisting the pin around in the location of the image's heart, Sanders said: "He will have a heart attack now." Questioned if he thought such a grotesque performance could actually work, Wheatley said he thought that it was highly possible.

It didn't. Pace lived on to write a number of articles for The News of the World, in which he made his own verbal attack on Sanders. Pace himself, however, was something of a fantasizer. I gather that, at some time, he had been on friendlier terms with Sanders, because at his London flat, Sanders showed me a manuscript prepared by Pace.

It purported to be The Necronominon [sic]--a totally fictional work, invented by the horror writer H.P. Lovecraft, who actually called it The Necronomicon. Pace's work was one of the most amateurish forgeries I have ever seen--something between a comic book and a child's crayoning book.
