The Magical World of Joshua Free – A Road Paved with Druids, Elves and Wizards

(Joshua Free as “Merlyn Stone” in the 1990’s)

With more than two active decades in the underground “New Age” and occult scene (known as “Merlyn Stone” in the 1990’s), over 20 unique arcane texts in print (not including collected anthologies), and now a decade spent as presiding director of the modern Mardukite movement – you may have already experienced some piece of the magical world of Joshua Free personally or more likely one of the many very publicly visible facets of culture and industry that he has influenced from behind the scenes.

Having so adeptly remained in the underground for so many years, it is quite possible that you have never actually read one of these critically acclaimed esoteric and arcane underground bestselling classics by Joshua Free and there is no better time than now to reap the benefits of the experience. Many of the original beloved titles (from 1996–2008) now appear in a special economical anniversary collection available to the new generation of seekers and returning patrons alike.

Joshua Free (also known as “Merlyn Stone” in the 1990’s) released many amazing resources for the modern occultist many years before his launch of the Mardukite organization (primarily emphasizing Mesopotamian studies). Starting with the SORCERER’S HANDBOOK and DRACONOMICON from the 1990’s and continuing with the BOOK OF DRUIDRY and BOOK OF ELVEN-FAERIE in (the earliest part of) the new millennium – thousands of copies of books by Joshua Free were in circulation before writing his magickal magnum opus to date, the infamous ARCANUM materials, first completed at age twenty-four!

When the SORCERER’S HANDBOOK premiered in 1998, the first edition was printed from an old-fashioned typewriter. It was originally reproduced and bound by a (local) Denver Colorado copy-center until they decided to actually read it one day… then they refused serviced because they were afraid of the spiritual implications of having anything to do with it. Thus began a tradition of Joshua Free self-producing his own books long into his days of more commercial distribution. After circulating in the underground for a few months, a second edition was printed exclusively for members of the “Elven Fellowship Circle of Magick” and the “Order of the Crystal Dawn,” two interconnected underground occult organizations in Colorado using the text as a Book of Shadows in the late 1990’s.

Although best known now for his work pertaining specifically to Sumerian and Babylonian paradigms (especially Anunnaki subjects), over twenty years ago, Joshua Free became active in another prominent underground movement – Pheryllt Druidism – a tradition he was initiated into at the age of twelve and remains active in today as a protege of Douglas Monroe. DRACONOMICON began as a notebook kept from the earliest periods of initiation when personal research led into all matters of “Dragons.” It has been revised, changed and enhanced four times prior to reaching its current state – marking nearly twenty years of neodruidic influence before inspiring the release of a separate “Pheryllt” series/trilogy of materials by Joshua Free (of which PHERYLLT I and PHERYLLT II have been released).

Materials from Joshua Free’s original initiation notebooks (not necessarily specific to dragons) was released to the underground as THE BOOK OF DRUIDRY in 2001, forming a second part of the “Druid Compleat” series/trilogy of materials (also available as an anthology of the same title). The other title in this series, THE BOOK OF ELVEN-FAERE, is not only a masterpiece of Druidry and Celtic Magical Tradition in its own right – It also served as a basis of inspiration (along with materials from all the above mentioned titles) to begin the ARCANUM project and ultimately the inception of the Mardukite movement, publicly solidified in 2008 and rooted in these works before the establishment of the widely circulated ‘Mardukite Core‘ (presented as the Necronomicon series/cycle edited by Joshua Free).

DRUIDS, VAMPYRES & SUMERIANS : Mardukite 2017 (Year-9) Annual Occult & Esoteric Book Review | New Babylon Rising eZine

This past year the Mardukite Research Organization underwent tremendous developments and transitions. What began with establishment of a new Marduk Temple and mobile office for the Mardukite Truth Seeker Press resulted with the much anticipated founding of a NEW BABYLON, the physical 5-acre off-grid HQ and desert preserve of the modern movement in San Luis Valley (Colorado) called the: Mardukite Babylon Ancient Astronomy Research Office.

During the Summer 2016 through Summer 2017 (Mardukite Season), the mobile-RV Marduk Temple and its guardians made several journeys and social invasions, including the Bonneville Salt Flats (Utah), the Grotto of the Redemption (Iowa), Carhenge (Nebraska), Badlands National Park (South Dakota), Maquoketa Caves (Iowa), the Renaissance Festival (Colorado), Garden of the Gods (Colorado) and an extended stay at Clear Creek RV Park (Golden, Colorado) while ongoing construction on Mardukite Babylon commenced. Only two of the original Babylon Guardian trinity remains after Sora Siix / “Mik” Mikka (Mikkayla) Streeper defected from the group this Summer. Meanwhile, Joshua Free (DJ Nabu) and DJ Kyra Kaos continue the legacy.


After the RV conversion to ‘mobile office’, the Mardukite Truth Seeker Press continued its publishing schedule with second planned volume of the Books of Pheryllt trilogy: Pheryllt 2: Secrets of the Ogham: The 21 Leaves of Druid Wisdom from the Book of Ogma Sun-Face edited by Joshua Free. The Seeker is led into deep forests of woodland mystery wherein lies the Great Magical Arcanum, initiation to the Divine Secrets of the Universe hidden within the runes of twenty-one Keys – the OGHAM – the secret language and alphabet of the woods. Pheryllt 2 continues the epic tribute to the work of Douglas Monroe that Joshua Free began in 2014. The concluding volume is expected in 2018.

Several years ago, final revisions of the Mardukite Core resulted in a series of matching ‘annual’ anthologies; annual, because each collected an annual Mardukite Season of material (usually three or more books) in one volume. Recent release of the second edition 2012 (Year-4) anthology, History of the Necronomicon: The Secret Evolution of Ancient Anunnaki Tradition in Modern Mardukite Magick of Sumerians & Babylonians edited by Joshua Free, brings the four-volume set full circle to its completion. The anthology includes three books, two of which were newly released as stand-alone anniversary editions this year as well: “Crossing to the Abyss” (Liber-555) and “Enochian Magic & Kabbalah” (Liber-K).

Twenty years after the title first appeared for its prestigious underground release in 1996, Joshua Free’s Druid Compleat is completely revised and expanded for this all-in-one volume, reformatted to include the complete text from the author’s personal Druidic trilogy. Two of the three books included in this anthology were newly released as stand-alone anniversary editions this year: “Druidry” and “Draconomicon.” The most comprehensive course ever developed specific to the magick, metaphysics and secret wisdom of Druids returns for its most economical edition ever!

Rounding off a Mardukite Season of anthologies, the final literary works of Joshua Free, collected from “Vampyre’s Bible: Moroi Book of V” and the 2016 bestseller “Cybernomicon,” the complete rites and teachings of the Moroii ad Vitam Paramus now appear in the NEW anthology compilation: “Vampyre Magick: A Complete Guide for the Modern Vampire.” Prolific author and world renowned occult expert, Joshua Free, presents a unique revolutionary volume drawn from 20-years practical experience and a hereditary family tradition of Living Vampyres – the Moroii ad Vitam – an authentic spiritual system existing for centuries underground in Central Europe, emphasizing balance, transformation and our relationship with the Universe.

In addition to the recent deluxe edition release of the Mardukite all-time bestseller SUMERIAN RELIGION BY JOSHUA FREE, the next forthcoming title to be published by the Mardukite Truth Seeker Press is the 10th Anniversary Revised Edition of the underground classic masterpiece ARCANUM BY JOSHUA FREE, with a limited edition clothbound hardcover pre-release expected SAMHAIN 2017 before next years paperback is available.

MODERN DRUIDS!! Self-Initiation Into Druidic Tradition: A Complete Course Curriculum in Druidry!

Hidden within the folds of time, space and the magic that holds it all together, there hides a little known, though popularly growing interest, misunderstood – yet powerful – facet of history, the evolution of human traditions and culture and the reality we are bound to everyday: the DRUIDS

Beyond the simple — though not necessarily inaccurate — stereotypes of white-robed priestly men gathering in stone circles near oak groves, the tradition of the Druids is laden with a much deeper philosophy of living and spiritual mysticism. It is still available to us in such intensity and power and bright colors that we see no equal in cultural histories of the world evolving since ancient Mesopotamia.

THE DRUID COMPLEAT is the most comprehensive course curriculum in the magick, metaphysics and secret wisdom of Druidry, designed for both novice and adept alike by prolific writer and occultist, Joshua Free, who has developed a huge definitive revolutionary literary anthology contribution for the New Age, comparable to his revolutionary “Arcanum” volume and even the “Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible.” Now, come initiate yourself and gain clear understanding of the ‘secret knowledge’ of the Druids unlike anything ever before compiled in print!

Many issues or challenges face a seeker who is called to pursue a modern study of Druidry. For one, there are very few real resources and published printings that provide truly sufficient foundations or practical applications. There is a significant growth of neodruidic literature appearing on the bookstands, but a significant amount of it is insubstantial after closer inspection and further fragmenting the wholeness of pure Druidry. This provides yet another challenge for the modern Druid in relaying its relevance or ‘reality’ to today’s population.

THE DRUID COMPLEAT is perfect for solitary seekers and working groups. Self-paced instruction provided by a leading member of the underground occult “New Age” community, available without membership and in the privacy of your own home, office or secret chamber. For the first time since its prestigious underground release in 1996, Joshua Free’s Druid Compleat is finally available in this all-in-one NEW economical volume, revised, expanded and reformatted to include the complete text from the author’s personal Druidic trilogy, available separately as “Druidry“, “Draconomicon” and “Book of Elven-Faerie.

As is greatly needed for our world and our times – and of which has been known to a select few in the world at all times – the beauty of the pure stream of Druidic philosophy and spirituality can be revealed in the most simple language; as it had always been intended to be – and as it was relayed in the forests and woodlands of the ancient world.

The quest for Druidic Wisdom is not restricted to a specific locale – some small island in Western Europe – or even a special lineage or bloodline; though many modern or neodruids believe that they have connections to the path from past lifetimes. Druidism differs in that the accessibility to universal knowledge is found everywhere in Nature and does not require a visit certain buildings to pay homage to gods or to seek authorities to administer truth – for there is no religion higher than Truth and there is no Man greater than Truth – there are no intermediaries, no external channels, nothing to prevent the seeker from embracing the wholeness of Nature and the Secrets of the Universe on their own terms…

…THIS is what the Druid path offers one who would come to know it in self-honesty.

Mardukite Research Organization & Publishing Group : 2016 Year-in-Review | New Babylon Rising eZine

NBRheaderSMALLnotuse

MARDUKITE YEAR-8 (2016) proved monumental in furthering the work of the Mardukite Research Organization and distribution of Mardukite Truth Seeker Press titles all over the world!

cybervampscollectionsmall Following the revolutionary CyberVamps debut volume in 2015, THE VAMPYRE’S BIBLE, the Beltane 2016 release of CYBERNOMICON completely reevaluated the complimentary synchronicity of the complete works of modern mystic and hybrid messenger Joshua Free — whether dubbed “Mardukite” or “CyberVamp” or “Systemology,” (etc.) the bigger picture for our times has become clearer than ever before!

pherlytcoll23 Continuing the widely anticipated and highly controversial Books of Fferyllt series first introduced with volume one of the BOOK OF PHERYLLT in 2014 with an emphasis on the “Dragon” in history, magic and human consciousness, Pheryllt neodruid initiate Joshua Free provided the second installment BOOK OF PHERYLLT in time for Samhain 2016. It emphasizes the secrets of “Tree Ogham” and herbalism in druid tradition. (Both the CYBERNOMICON and PHERYLLT VOL 2 were first published as limited edition hardcovers for Mardukite Chamberlains prior to paperback release.)

2016reissuecollectionsmall As it turned out, 2016 was a banner year for “Anniversary Editions” commissioned by the Mardukite Truth Seeker Press commemorating long-standing underground occult classics developed by Joshua Free, dating back to his years writing under the name “Merlyn Stone” in the 1990s.

DRACONOMICON, first published underground in 1996 for the Mystics of the Earth (Draconic Celtic Lodge of Druids) celebrates its 20TH ANNIVERSARY this year! This original classic by neodruid Joshua Free predated the authors more recent official work with New Forest Centre of Douglas Monroe and the Books of Pheryllt literary series.

JOSHUA FREE’s unpublished manuscript titled “Applied Druidology” in 2001 served as reference material for later works including “Book of Elven-Faerie” and “Arcanum.” It appeared underground under the title “Druidry” in 2012 and has now been re-released to the general public for its 15TH ANNIVERSARY edition as the THE BOOK OF DRUIDRY, complimenting a growing line of pocket eco-editions from the Mardukite Publishing Group.

BoZthumbcvr In addition to the CyberVamps and Pheryllt Druid paradigms, the Mardukite-specific work from Mesopotamia also saw restoration this year, including a new 5TH ANNIVERSARY pocket eco-edition of the ceremonial guide to the Babylonian Akitu New Year Festival in the BOOK OF ZAGMUK BY NABU. Furthermore, a new edition of the “Book of Sajaha the Seer” reappeared as the LOST BOOK OF SHAYAHA.


Plans are still being developed for the National Mardukite NexGenCon scheduled for the August 2017 eclipse at Carhenge, Nebraska following a Wizards of the Wasteland spiritual retreat in the South Dakota Badlands.

DRUIDOLOGY : Dragon Kings, Druids & Pheryllt, 15th Anniversary “Book of Druidry” by Joshua Free, (Underground Classic Restored)

druidryfullcvribanner

Venture deep into the folds of the Green World and initiate yourself to the greatest of the Celtic Mysteries – the Wisdom of the Druids!

Discovering druidic wisdom and dragon power of the ancient woodland mystics has never been more clear for our times. It’s time to come and initiate yourself and on a journey into Groves of the Enchanted Forest.

Drawing upon two decades experience in neodruidism, Joshua Free’s original underground masterpiece, “Druidry”, completes a long-planned trilogy of superior resources for modern druid seekers, which includes with “Book of Elven-Faerie” and “Draconomicon.”


druidry15thannivthumb I completed the material for “Druidry” shortly after my disappearance as “Merlyn Stone” in 2001. Here it is, fifteen years after the fact, being released for widespread distribution for the first time in the history of its underground existence – influencing the New Age in covert ways, something that I have done extensively for these subjects, whether you might recognize where my work and words have made their appearance to you… I assure you they have. “Druidry” is simply one more example of this – one that has stood the test of time among my literary contributions and is even older than Book of Elven-Faerie (the project that I began in 2002 after completing “Druidry”).

lapis lazuli cloak 1 Recently, a related literary contribution of mine, the Draconomicon also celebrated an anniversary: of twenty years! Combined, the Book of Elven-Faerie, Draconomicon and Book of Druidry discourses compose material released as Druid Compleat anthology (formerly titled: “A Complete Course Curriculum in Druidry”). All of this work is a reflection of material collected during my participation in the modern Pheryllt Druidism movement, heavily weighted by the work of Douglas Monroe and his Merlyn Trilogy.

13043328_1691299604455500_7570410307930593095_nvv Many things have transpired since Mardukite Truth Seeker Press released Druidry in 2012, for its first public edition (although it was intentionally not made available to extended distribution channels). During the same time as this work was being developed, Douglas Monroe released the third and final installment of the “Merlyn Trilogy” (titled “Deepteachings of Merlyn”) and included an “interlogue” essay contributed by yours truly. At the same time I was installed to the Twelfth Chair of the Round Table Council maintained by Douglas Monroe and the New Forest Centre. Things had come full circle…


druidry15thannivthumb Providing a new vision for modern Druidry, neodruid expert Joshua Free explores the deep teachings of Druidic Lore, including the core doctrines and codes, triad teachings of the Bards, natural philosophy, the construction of ritual tools and performance of ceremonial magic dedicated to trees and Nature.

Whether you are new to Druidry or simply looking to refresh your own practices, this concise, expertly written and beautifully presented guide to the ancient mysteries will re-enchant your everyday life with the Wisdom of the Druids!


moroiiadlksgnkldsabsmsm The Dragon – the Druidic Legacy is an important part of the history and traditions of cultural magic and the development of human civilization as a whole. Nothing is separate. And this is one of the messages we learn from the Druids. That everything is connected together and we cannot see things in exclusion to other things if we are to see things for how they truly are – for the Druids seek to see with Truth.

Hidden in the depths of the Dragon lair is a legacy of bloodlines, secret pacts and cults, the symbolism of an entire universe and the means by which it can be controlled. This is perhaps one of the best kept secrets or grand conspiracies in the history of occultism. It is the undefiled, raw and primordial truth of things – just as we would expect the Druids to understand them.

With understanding comes wisodm. Enjoy.

A PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM JOSHUA FREE, CREATOR OF THE DRACONOMICON

“Twenty years ago I became active in Pheryllt Druidism. The Draconomicon began as a notebook kept from that period – during a time when I investigated all matters of Dragons. It has been revised, changed and enhanced four times prior to reaching its current state – marking its twenty years of influence in the Underground neo-Druidic movement.”

“When the Draconomicon was being developed by the Mardukite Research Organization for its 15th Anniversary edition in 2011, things were different for me as the creator. At that time, I had not yet been officially installed into Douglas Monroe’s Pheryllt New Forest Council, nor had the Deepteachings of Merlyn (the third book by Douglas Monroe) been released, which even included an essay of mine.”

BOOKS OF FFERYLLT (Pheryllt Vol 1 + 2)

BOOKS OF FFERYLLT (Pheryllt Vol 1 + 2)

DRACONOMICON also represents the forerunner for the druidic literary series that Joshua Free is currently involved with – the BOOK OF PHERYLLT – or BOOKS OF FFERYLLT… of which two of three volumes are now available to the public (the first of which excerpts previous editions of the DRACONOMICON directly). Not only is the series of significance to Mardukites, but they have even been adopted by Monroe’s New Forest druidic workshops.


THE DRAGON LEGACY is an important part of the history and traditions of cultural magic and the development of human civilization as a whole. “Nothing is separate.” And this is one of the messages 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 for “how they truly are” – another gift of the DRAGON.

PHERYLLT 2: Secrets of the Ogham: 21 Leaves of Druidic Wisdom from the Book of Ogma Sun-Face (by Joshua Free)

pheryllt2necrogatebanner

The 21 plants of Ogma Sun-Face – each one stands for a sacred rune, and each for a lesson… the Ogham plants have remained the cornerstone of Druid Magic since the Cad Goddeu of ages past…
Douglas Monroe, The 21 Lessons of Merlyn

heryllt2pbcvrcrop TREES are an inseparable icon to the Druidic archetype and they are central to this second volume of the Fferyllt series edited by world renown mystic, Joshua Free. The Seeker is led into deep forests of woodland mystery wherein lies the Great Magical Arcanum, initiation to the Divine Secrets of the Universe hidden within the runes of twenty-one Keys – the OGHAM – the secret language and alphabet of the woods.

ladder For two decades a modern movement of neodruids influenced by modern Pheryllt Druidism have become bystanders amidst the unbreakable schism. Alleged authorities on Druidry raise one hand screaming how these documents supporting an ancient Welsh Bardic Druid (and Pheryllt) tradition are a hoax, but with the other hand they borrow from these same sources for their own purposes.

The authentic premise guiding the modern Pheryllt Druid tradition are works that exist from the Welsh MS. Society and the continuing efforts of the National Welsh Eisteddfodd in preserving the genuine Celtic Bardic tradition in Wales. Sources for the Ogham Tree Alphabet include the “Ogham Tract” and 14th Century “Book of Ballymote” transcribed by George Calder as “Auraicept na n’Eces” – named after the opening lines meaning “primer of the poets” or “beginning of the lessons.”

All modern Ogham Tree systems revived for ‘New Age‘ practices derive from the Scholar’s Primer. The Ogham origins, however, are from the Tower of Babel and attributed to the “god” OGMA SUN-FACE, Patron to Bardic Druids (poets, writers, scribes and artists) and the “Mercurial” messenger current that appears elsewhere with Nabu, Merlyn, Thoth, Hermes, and so forth.

OGMA, a man well skilled in speech and poetry, invented the Ogham. The cause of its invention, as proof of his ingenuity, that this speech should belong to the learned alone, to the exclusion of rustics and herdsmen.
–Auraicept na n’Eces

In ancient Keltia, the Druid Order consisted of learned men, those educated in Bardic Arts: cosmology, native history, legendary history of heroes and spirituality, penal laws and punishments, geography, healing, botanical medicine, astronomy, astrology and magic. It is no wonder the Bard is viewed as transmitter or catalyst of awen, the essence, divine spark or spirit of inspiration that the Greeks termed gnosis. It is to the ‘ebb and flow’ of the awen field that the poetic genius of Bards is attributed.

“–So Ceridwen took to the crafts of the Book of Pheryllt to boil a cauldron of Awen…”


Preservation of ancient knowledge is key among the elite. This Ancient Mystery Tradition is timeless and spans all locations on the globe. Its fundamentals and the connection between history and future is based in “language,” “communication” and above all, the written word. The “poetic genius” of AWENthe Divine Spark of Creation – manifests throughout all creative arts as the spirit of “prophecy,” an ability to observe experience with a heightened awareness and communicate it in the World of Form.

THE BOOK OF PHERYLLT (VOL 2) reveals an incredible “Druid Database” – the original mainframe – of knowledge and wisdom that unified the Celtic lands for at least a millennium and forever shaped the consciousness of the planet thereafter.
