Description

New England ... 1927 - William Stanton is visited by a friend from his childhood, Edgar Wycherley, who hands him a strange pyramid shaped object and begs him not to show it to anyone, not even him if he asks for it. As William delves into the mysteries of this object and the reasons why his friend gave it to him, he discovers that Edgar was somehow involved in the occult and that the entire world may be at risk.

Trivia

From the "Truth about the Necronomicon" at www.hplovecraft.com

"Now about the “terrible and forbidden books”—I am forced to say that most of them are purely imaginary. There never was any Abdul Alhazred or Necronomicon, for I invented these names myself." - H.P. Lovecraft

The misconception about the the Necronomicon's authenticity became even more complicated when numerous hoax editions of the book started to surface in the 70s.
