Rekindling Light in Dark Months with 90’s Witchcraft and Nine Gates of the Kingdom of Shadows

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!

Two New Hardcover Editions Coming Soon! On February 19, 2021…
–THE WITCH’S HANDBOOK: A COMPLETE GRIMOIRE OF WITCHCRAFT (Unpublished 1998 Manuscripts) by Joshua Free writing as Merlyn Stone, edited and introduced by Rowen Gardner.
–NOVEM PORTIS: NECRONOMICON REVELATIONS AND NINE GATES OF THE KINGDOM OF SHADOWS (Mardukite Liber-R9) by Joshua Free, foreword by Rowen Gardner.

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 Portiscombines 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.

BOOK OF PHERYLLT – Complete Druid Source Book developed by “Merlyn” Author’s Apprentice

THE BOOK OF PHERYLLT edited by Joshua Free is a realization of legendary proportions, delivering the virtually impossible—a complete collection of esoteric Pheryllt Druid fragments scattered across history into a single coherent source, collected from the popular underground trilogy from Joshua Free, and now accessible to all modern Druidic practitioners for the first time ever! Published in collaboration with Kima Global Books, the literary home of Douglas Monroe’s conclusion to the ‘Merlyn Trilogy’—The Deepteachings of Merlyn, (which also included a brief ‘Interlogue’ written by Joshua Free).

THE BOOK OF PHERYLLT
A Complete Druid Source Book

edited by Joshua Free

Come drink deeply from the wisdom of authentic Celtic Druidism brewed at the Cauldron of Awen, wherein lies unknown depths and heights of true mystic initiation. Travel far along hidden wooden paths of the Enchanted Forest—using The Book of Pheryllt as your guide—and discover the ancient storehouse of Nature’s Mysteries from the original Druidic database of universal knowledge.


Although best known for his work connected to the modern MARDUKITE “New Thought” movement, Joshua Free has been involved with “practical Earth magic” since he was 12, starting with his first initiation into Pheryllt Druidism in the mid-1990’s as “Merlyn Stone.” At that time, he was once the youngest initiate ever of the Order of Bards, Ovates & Druids (OBOD) in England, before leaving to exclusively pursue a Druidic apprenticeship with Douglas Monroe, and is now “Bard of the Twelfth Chair” at New Forest Centre for Magickal Studies.


Douglas Monroe fondly memorializes the efforts made by his old apprentice in the Preface for the Joshua Free’s presentation of THE BOOK OF PHERYLLT from Kima Global Books

“Our paths first crossed back around 1995. I was teaching university abroad, and there received an email from one Merlyn Stone, a teenage aspiring writer with a headful of penetrating ideas which he confessed the 21 Lessons of Merlyn had someway triggered. I recall being astounded at the depth of the letter, and was soon to learn that ‘Merlyn Stone’ was actually the pen name of Joshua Free… Through the intervening years I have watched as Joshua Free has matured into a fine writer—and an even better scholar, whose prodigious output of books cover a wide range of esoteric topics and philosophies, well worth exploring… Joshua’s genius lies in his ability to compile, categorize and connect vast stockpiles of lore, ancient to modern, and which has, over the last decade, culminated in a truly impressive contribution to world metaphysics… In time, I believe his work will receive more of the serious recognition it deserves…”
