SORCERER’S HANDBOOK – “Merlyn Stone” Legacy 20th Anniversary, Early Origins : Arcanum and Mardukite Necronomicon by Joshua Free

The SORCERER’S HANDBOOK OF MERLYN STONE returns for a special 20th Anniversary commemoration after this underground cult classic reached thousands of copies in circulation! …and as a fan-appreciation bonus, this deluxe edition is publicly available at the original 1998 retail price!

Prolific author, underground occult expert and founder of the modern Mardukite Anunnaki movement — JOSHUA FREE — reveals unique details about developing this amazing work as a teenager in the 1990’s, writing as “Merlyn Stone” at the forefront of the new millennium “magick” scene:

“During the 1990’s, public interest in ‘magick’ and ‘occult’ subjects exponentially rose to new heights as few could have anticipated. I appeared on the “New Age” scene – however much ‘underground’ – in 1995 as ‘Merlyn Stone.‘ As I have explained to others and in my recent autobiographical narrative, NABU SPEAKS!, the name was chosen for personal reasons and not as a tribute to the female author (Merlin Stone) of whom I had not even heard of at that time. My research revealed that ‘Merlyn‘ is not really a proper name, although it has been used to refer to particular figures (or a figure) in history, it is actually a title – a Welsh title – that can be best equated to what you might know as a seer or prophet. The contemporary reader may be more familiar with the Judeo-Christian religious context of the title, which in Hebrew is nabih, derived from the Babylonian name: Nabu – a name that many know me as today.”

“As far as I could observe, however, it was 1995 that provided the largest shift. I took a step back, observing the wide-angle, and I saw the prominence of the newly released motion picture The Craft coupled with Sabrina the Teenage Witch as the featured ‘after-school-special’ of the day. Clearly the coast was clear and it was time to come out – come awake!”

“While I was not alone in hearing this ‘call’, the work I had to do – the program I was here to follow – was not something readily understandable to the population – even a “New Age” one. The plans were laid before I ever showed up in this life, but patience was key as was watching for the signposts and keeping my head down. It was going to take everything to bring the work to the heights it can now be found in, but in the 1990’s, the world was not ready for what I had to say concerning the origins of ‘magick’ and the “Mardukite” legacy, so I had to start at the beginning – to build a basis – to work from the foundation rock or stone.”

“All of my original ‘writings’ related to the occult field were actually the subject of ‘in-house’ materials prepared for working groups and research oriented studies that I was personally involved with – and often the ‘founder’ of. I began this work publicly in 1995 and it has now been over twenty years since – half of my current existence. It has taken many forms, though it was easiest for me to begin with that which would be most familiar to my target demographic: esotericists, occult practitioners and the up and coming alien youth that usually had inclinations toward the “New Age” naturally.”

“In 1995, the world was not ready for MARDUKITES. I worked within the paradigms that were much more accessible and did not require a lot of ‘cultural background’ – ritual magick, spellcraft, high psychology and even the ceremonial systems. Additionally, two methodologies I was most concerned with connecting later planned work (now known as “Mardukite”) were Pheryllt Druid material of Douglas Monroe and also “Simon’sNecronomicon, rooted in Mesopotamia.”

“From 1995 through 1999, I assisted in producing not only several ritual collections or ‘Book of Shadows’ for practicing underground groups but also led my own operating and experimental groups and even taught workshops and gave lectures in local Denver-area bookstores and New Age outlets. The sum of all this was collected as the SORCERER’S HANDBOOK OF MERLYN STONE, with additional materials later produced and known now as the Lost Books of Merlyn Stone. Some of these later notebooks and contributions were commissioned for private use or small groups, but even all these twenty years later, some of the records still remain and I have chosen to append them to the traditional presentation of the SORCERER’S HANDBOOK for this twentieth anniversary presentation.”

“Simultaneously revolutionary and introductory in its presentation, the SORCERER’S HANDBOOK OF MERLYN STONE is the inspirational precursor to the materials I later developed more thoroughly in order to establish the “Mardukite” brand of occult interpretation
– mainly ARCANUM: THE GREAT MAGICAL ARCANUM, BOOK OF ELVEN-FAERIE and NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE. These other works represent a more mature development of my contributions from early adulthood, but the Sorcerer’s Handbook of Merlyn Stone and the Lost Books still remain as distant origins to my more recent and better recognized work.”

For centuries, the realm of magick has been sought, and finally what the world awaited for has arrived; a book that tells it all without the unnecessary occult jargon allowing for the quickest personal results in training and development. Just a few of the many topics explored are ritual spellcraft, candle magick, ceremonial high magick, tarot divination, the magick of the Golden Dawn, the complete Enochian arts and yes, even the Necronomicon! Now you can master the powers of magick with a book that has changed the world, launching hundreds of traditions in over a decade! — SORCERER’S HANDBOOK – 20TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION
