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.
It may very well be that, politically and medically, we have recently experienced some of the darkest months of the current age… and the winter season being upon us, we often seek to rekindle the Clear Light during this time of the year. Many ancient traditions allude to such practices, visible signs found even today among neopagan revivals of “Imbolc” (Imbolg) or “Candlemas” and even “Groundhog’s Day” as we approach February Eve.
Among many efforts to rekindle this Magical Light during the Dark Months, as we begin the 2021 year, the Joshua Free Imprint has scheduled two amazing editions for release on February 19, that are sure to keep your flames burning as we confront the new challenges of the year and begin new phases of work in Mardukite Zuism and Metahuman Systemology toward creating the ultimate post-modern, post-human, future we want right here on Earth!
Once intended a sequel to “The Sorcerer’s Handbook” by Joshua Free while writing as “Merlyn Stone” in the 1990’s, his “notebooks” composing the historically legendary “1998 Book of Shadows”-and eventually “The Witch’s Handbook”-were only released privately to members of his own Coven operating in Colorado, and other groups he networked with, during a peak period of development for the modern “New Age.”
Among the many facets explored within these pages, you will also encounter the complete structure of the original century-old “Book of Shadows,” illuminated for the first time with a new revolutionary never before published presentation of concise descriptions and references that uncover influential behind-the-scenes sources of many contemporary Wiccan and traditionalist Witchcraft movements. Rites of Initiation, Consecration Rituals, Tools, Herbs, Sabbats, Ceremonies, Ritual Magic, Spellcraft… It’s all here!
From the Key of Solomon, to the Rites of the Golden Dawn and OTO, to the Aradian Gospel of Witches, to the relatively modern innovation of a “Neopagan Eightfold Year” by three men: a Druid (Ross Nichols), a Magician (Aleister Crowley) and a Witch (Gerald Gardner); an underlying story unfolds beneath and back of the 20th Century Witchcraft revival and no stone or pentacle is left unturned in this effective, yet candid, complete practical guide to the true “Arts of Witchcraft.”
Long-standing and returning fans will celebrate the release of The Witch’s Handbook as the “missing link” of a once proposed “Merlyn Stone” trilogy from the 1990’s, which includes “The Sorcerer’s Handbook” and “The Druid’s Handbook”-both of which have been widely accepted in the underground “New Age” scene already. This special premiere edition is dedicated by the author to Fairuza Balk and, as a bonus, features Joshua Free’s tribute to “The Craft” movie, including his previously unpublished treatment of its practical witchcraft as “Nancy’s Book of Shadows.”
The original classic underground bestseller by Joshua Free returns to print, commemorating its 10th Anniversary with a special hardcover collector’s edition that is sure to become a prized addition to your personal esoteric library.
A refreshingly coherent revelation for our times, illuminating long-lost remnants of primordial spirituality, ancient Mesopotamian religion, Sumerian Anunnaki mythology and a hidden mystery tradition developed during a nearly-prehistoric Babylonian era of magic and Otherworldly encounters.
From original Anunnaki traditions to the origins of all worldly and metaphysical systems; from the Yezidic and Persian lore of the Ancient Near East to the past century of underground occult traditions inspired by Aleister Crowley and Kenneth Grant; from the archetypal themes present in the “Delomelanicon” to the experiences of the millions of people who have read, or even used, Simon’s Necronomicon… No cuneiform tablet is left unturned, no dark corner left undiscovered, in this amazing and concise guide to the forbidden knowledge lost thousands of years ago, and yet now covertly infused within the heart of all “magick,” “religion” and “spirituality” on the planet today.
In “Novem Portis: Necronomicon Revelations and Nine Gates of the Kingdom of Shadows,“ world renown director of the “Mardukite Research Organization” and founder of “Mardukite Zuism” and the Systemology Society invites the Seeker on an incredible and practical occult journey into underground esoterica, unlike anything ever published before. Joshua Free candidly reveals how “spiritual beings” and “alien intelligences” have increasingly influenced the imaginations of “metaphysical” writers and “fantasy” artists, primordial “gods” seeking to have their stories told and knowledge of their existence reborn. And what’s more: the power and influence of this invisible hand appear to be behind all of the primary systems installed into human civilization, whether social or mystical, since the time of the ancient Sumerians.
This collector’s edition hardcover 10th anniversary edition of “Novem Portis” combines materials from the revolutionary and controversial “Necronomicon Revelations” (Liber-R) with the Mardukite Tablet Catalogue released in “Liber-9,” just as it appeared a decade ago for the first wave of graduating “Mardukite Chamberlains” alumni, those having previously dedicated two years to a tradition of literary work and spiritual systemology inspired by Joshua Free’s “Necronomicon: The Anunnaki Bible.“

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!”
Merlyn Stone (Joshua Free)
“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’s” Necronomicon, 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
Yezidi (Yazidi), an unbroken unique gene of middle eastern people extending directly back to ancient pre-Semitic Sumerian Mardukites, practicing a tradition of modern Zoroastrian Yazdânism derived from the monoltry monotheism to Marduk of Babylon observed as Melek Ta’us or Shaitan (Shaytan), have been threatened with genocide in Iraq by the Islamic State (IS/ISIS).
The Mardukite Research Organization (Mardukite Chamberlains) naturally lends a sympathetic ear to these current events in our modern world-at-large. Details concerning this can be found in the Mardukite Year-1 anthology: NECRONOMICON – THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE containing the raw underground materials shaping the existence of man’s beliefs and practices for thousands of years; right from the heart of Sumer, Babylon and Egypt! Studies include the Mardukite inception within tablets from Akkadian, Assyrian, Chaldean, Yezidi and Zoroastrian traditions also!
NECRONOMICON – THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE (Sixth Edition)
This enlarged Sixth Edition includes the complete Maqlu Text recently translated for the separate volume “Maqlu Magic” or “Necronomicon Spellbook II” in addition to several other unique updates from previous editions! NECRONOMICON – THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE is the most complete collection of Sumerian and Babylonian accounts of prehistoric and ancient human history and civilization in one book, composing in itself a ‘bible’ and actually proving to be the predecessor and basis of all global scripture-based religious traditions thereafter.
Few occultists who remain in the Light are probably privy to lore of the ancient Yezidi sect. They follow a tradition dedicated to the “God of the Black Mountain” who gave to them wisdom in what is known as the oldest of the “Black Books”. While the Realm of Light has shied away from such – or believed they have attained more than a glimpse of it in their “Books of Shadows”, it is this Divine Encounter that has been omitted from traditional biblical tales for its connections and devotion to the Darkness.
—Necronomicon: The Anunnaki Bible
CONCERNING THE MODERN YEZIDI / YAZIDI (from wiki):
“Some followers of other monotheistic religions mistakenly equate the Peacock Angel with their own unredeemed evil spirit Satan, which has incited centuries of persecution of the Yazidi as “devil worshipers.” Persecution of Yazidis has continued in their home communities within the borders of modern Iraq, under both Saddam Hussein and fundamentalist Sunni Muslim revolutionaries. In August 2014 the Yazidi were targeted by Islamic State, or ISIS, in its campaign to “purify” Iraq and neighboring countries of non-Islamic influences. Soon after ISIS started their crackdown on Yazidis, the United States Air Force unleashed bombs on ISIS positions and also dropped relief packages to stranded Yazidis.” (wiki)
The Yezidi are a distinct genetic Mesopotamian sect that still resides in Northern Iraq and can trace its blood and traditions to the ancient ANUNNAKI quite easily. It is a unique form of Mardukite Monotheism presented under the guise of a messenger named Melek Ta’us (very similar to the manifestation of MARDUK as Mithras and Mazda – as One – in the Zoroastrian schema. This same current of energy is also
manifest in Maitreya for Buddhists.
In accordance with the Yezidic Tradition, there is an All-Father or YAZDAN who created the SevenANUNNAKI (“emissaries” or “angels”) including Azazel (or Azazil – generally equated with Erra/Nergal or Samas/Shammash/Utu). The word “Azif” and the actual book, “Al Azif”, is a Yezidic tome detailing the lore, or literally “howls” of the Djinns (or jinn).
NECRONOMICON – THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE (Sixth Edition)
Some scholars of the Necronomicon-Cycle will note that one of the popular Arabic translations for the title of the work is, in fact, Al Azif. The reason for this being that there were no other ancient examples of such a tome known to exist in that region – and to our gain, the lore compliments the existing ANUNNAKI based MardukiteNECRONOMICON even further. The association with the “buzzing of insects” could be meant to mean both the “swarm” and the “sound,” furthering the connection of the Outer Ones with “UFO” extraterrestrial beings…
One specific quality of the Yezidi culture is: the Yezidis claim to share Adamic (from “Adam”) descent but not of Eve. Their lore also prompts that the remaining global population outside of their sect is also outside of this “special” lineage. And to them, they were given “Revelation” (“Al-Jilwah” – contained in the NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE) from their Divine Encounters with a being who the later rising Judeo-Christians denoted as Satan – in the Yezidi language spelled Shaitan or Shaytan (and perhaps others within the Mardukite tradition might better liken to ENKI). It might be said that based on the purest use of the term, the Yezidi represent the oldest “Satanists” on the planet – if such were even possible in pre-Semitic times…
