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).

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!”

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’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

Future of Dark Arts & Forbidden Sciences; True Necromancy for the Cyber Generation | Cybernomicon

BELTANE 2016 — On May’s Eve, “When the Great Bear hangs from its tail in the sky,” Mardukite Research & Development presents a CyberVamps Publication in conjunction with the Mardukite Truth Seeker Press — sure to become an underground esoteric classic representative of the World Order of the Next Generation…

CYBERNOMICONTrue Necromancy for the Cyber Generation: The Future of Dark Arts & Forbidden Sciences in the 21st Century by Joshua Free
Now available in HARDCOVER and PAPERBACK

GreatBearinthSky

Since the dawn of modern human history in Babylon & Egypt, magical tradition appeared as innate and indigenous forms of cultural and religious expression to give “order” to the human psyche…

Was ancient mysticism, esoteric wisdom and dramatic magical operations intended to be taken “literally” once committed to written records?

Are they actually indicators of something else beneath the surface of the way they have been understood for centuries? …even millenniums?


CYBERNOMICON_cover-preview “We are here to become great men and women, and with that purpose in view, we must eliminate everything in our religion and philosophy that tends to make the human mind a dependent weakling. If you would serve God and be truly religious, do not kneel before God, but learn to walk with God, and do something tangible every day to increase the happiness of mankind. This is religion that is worth while, and it is such religion alone that can please the Infinite.”
–Christian D. Larson

CYBERNOMICON in Hardcover and Paperback!

The Ancient Mystery School from which all occult lodges are founded is Necromancy. Deep rooted magical organizations all demonstrate active participation with “The Other,” bridging a communication between what is Visible and Invisible. Inner Circles maintain Dead Names and Knowledge from the Past. These are the Teachings of the Ages, Secret Wisdom of the Past… and a recovery of what is Dead.

keep-calm-and-be-a-cyber-5 Humans have been trying to crack the code on “Death” since the invention of religion. In Egypt, especially, the funerary process was central to the whole tradition-meaning the relationship (and promise) made between the “sky gods” and the people of Earth. Most of the oldest cuneiform writings in Mesopotamia are either an effort to preserve posthumous legacies of gods and kings, or investigations into the landscape of the Underworld and nature of the Abyss.

Sacred knowledge from ancient civilizations, including their technology, is understood only by looking beyond the contemporary knowledge we are educated with. Society claims to prize “individuality” and “innovation” yet requires its citizens to fall in step to learn and repeat — copy and paste — the same methodology held by previous generations. Mystics and Magicians demonstrate an upper hand in life by manifesting their will and finding themselves in synchronistic circumstances that seem magical. Understanding energy fields, their interactions and its affect on perceived reality is what makes this possible.
