Return to the magickal world of “Merlyn Stone” with the new 2023 deluxe edition anthology reissues of 20th Century underground occult classics!
Here is the complete works of Joshua Free — while writing as “Merlyn Stone” in the 1990s — collected in two deluxe oversized hardcover volumes:
— MERLYN’S COMPLETE BOOK OF MAGICK: A TREASURY OF SORCERY, DRUIDISM & WITCHCRAFT
including: The Sorcerer’s Handbook, The Witch’s Handbook, and The Druid’s Handbook in one volume.
— MERLYN’S COMPLETE BOOK OF PHERYLLT: THE LOST SECRETS OF DRUIDIC TRADITION
including: The Draconomicon and Draconomicon (Volume 2): The Pheryllt Researches
Celebrating 25 years since the original “Sorcerer’s Handbook” of Merlyn Stone; and 20 years since the small-print commercial reissue of Merlyn’s Magick.
The complete underground 1990’s magickal legacy of “Merlyn Stone” lives on!
Joshua Free’s personal notebooks and privately released 1990’s “Book of Shadows” of 20th Century New Age Magick are united — restored and revised — now in one deluxe tome for the first time ever! What originally began as journals and personal grimoires of a young teenage magician later evolved into foundations for a literary profession and lifelong career as an underground mystic philosopher, spanning more than a quarter-of-a-century and over 50 other books!
A practical occult treasury of the magickal arts of sorcerers, druids and witches!
“Merlyn’s Complete Book of Magick: An Occult Treasury of Sorcery, Druidism and Witchcraft” is the perfect addition to your esoteric magick library and makes an excellent companion to other Master Edition anthologies by Joshua Free, such as “The Great Magickal Arcanum” and “Merlyn’s Complete Book of Druidism.” His original 1990’s “Merlynomian Tradition” predates these other compilations, the Mardukite Research Org and Systemology Society by a decade or more — earning him an underground cult following (literally and figuratively) of several hundred individuals while still a teenager.
A ‘Grade-I’ fast-track crash-course for the Mardukite Academy!
Even after over twenty years, original materials developed by Joshua Free (while writing as “Merlyn Stone”) remain the cornerstones for Mardukite Academy “Grade-I” Merlyn School of Magick and Druidry. Communication of the material has continued to evolve in such a way that in decades past, attempts at compiling a definitive “Merlynomian” anthology all fell short of the scope and concise accessibility of what is achieved with this 20th Anniversary presentation of “Merlyn’s Magick,” enlarged and enhanced using the most recent up-to-date revisions combined with original documents.
Invite the legendary archetype of “Merlin-the-Magician” into your life with this concise, yet wide-encompassing, 550-page masterpiece of practical magick, druidry and witchcraft, suitable for newcomers and adept alike.
This special 25th Anniversary oversized hardcover Deluxe Edition commemorates completion of the “Draconomicon” and “Pheryllt Research” cycle of ‘Merlyn Stone’ material in 1998, revised and restored to make a prized addition to your personal esoteric library.
Come and initiate yourself to the Ancient Mystery School and venture on a progressive journey through the Dragon Legacy and Druidic Secrets — beginning in the depths of the Primordial Abyss and primeval birth of the “Great Cosmic Dragon” and following through the many millennium of secret knowledge carried to the present age…and the future!
The Pheryllt Legacy is an important and integral part of the history and traditions of all cultures, and subsequently underlies all cultural magical traditions — not to mention symbols and motifs that lie beneath the development of human civilization as a whole. Nothing is separate. And this is one of the lessons we learn from The Dragon — that everything is connected together and we cannot see things in exclusion to other things if we are to see things, with Self-honesty, for how they truly are — another gift of The Dragon.
Whether you are simply curious, or seeking to explore deep teachings that may incorporate “dragons” and “druidry” into your spiritual and magical systems, the “Draconomicon” and “Pheryllt Researches” combined in Merlyn’s Complete Book of Pheryllt represent the invisible hand behind a quarter-of-a-century modern occult evolution, and has sparked hundreds of traditions.
Many antiquated scholarly references to the “Books of Fferyllt” or the “Pheryllt” themselves may be found by a diligent scholar (many of which are paraphrased in this special anniversary collector’s edition of “The Pheryllt Researches”). Whatever bits trickle down from classical literature and antiquarian druidism to satisfy a modern thirst for the ‘pheryllt paradigm’ have been collected together in one place – a sacred book once thirded in former presentations of a ‘Pheryllt Trilogy’ by Joshua Free and are now made whole — forming a complete source book of undefiled mystical lore.
Whatever name, guise, or title we might attribute to this work as the proverbial ‘Body of the Dragon’ — and we have chosen “Pheryllt” — this same lore (originally accessible to very few with small networks) serves as basis for the majority of Celtic and neo-Druidic revival of the past few centuries, not to mention other forms of ‘neo-paganism’; whether or not it has received its due credit as such by those borrowing liberally from it.
Hidden in the depths of the Dragon’s Lair is an untold legacy of knowledge and power, secret societies and bloodlines, cults and symbols encompassing our entire material existence–and the means by which it can be controlled. It is quite possible this is among the best kept secrets in the history of occultism, even enshrouded in a cacophony of grand conspiracies. And in its most ancient forms, it is the undefiled, raw and primordial Truth of things — just as we would expect the Druids, wizards and sages of old to understand them. And with true understanding, comes true wisdom.
