Necromancy, as it is described in grimoires, involves manipulation of corpses or grave sites and is not to be confused with Spiritism, in which a person establishes a telepathic connection with a spirit of a dead person. Grimoires dealing in necromancy include the Fourth Book of Cornelius Agrippa, the Grand Grimoire, the Red Dragon and the Verus Jesuitarum Libellus.

Necronomicon: A modern hoax. There are at least four versions of the Necronomicon, one of which simply repeats the first 20 pages over and over, as if the author expected that no one in his right mind would read any further before discarding it.

I am continually running into people that have discovered the Necronomicon and think that it is an actual ancient magical grimoire. There are at least four versions of the Necronomicon, one of which simply repeats the first 20 pages over and over, as if the author expected that no one in his right mind would read any further before discarding it. The well known fantasy writer HP Lovecraft mentioned the Necronomicon in his works and admitted to his peers that it was a work of fiction. Lovecraft wrote to “Conan the Barbarian” author Robert E. Howard in 1930: “I read the Arabian Nights at the age of five. In those days I used to dress up in a turban, burnt-cork a beard on my face, and call myself by the synthetic name (Allah only knows where I got it!) of Abdul Alhazred- which I later revived, in memory of old times, to confer on the hypothetical author of the hypothetical Necronomicon!” In 1933 Lovecraft wrote to Robert Bloch, the author of “Psycho”: “As for the ‘Necronomicon’- this month’s triple use of such allusions is bringing me in an unusual number of inquiries concerning the real nature and obtainability of Alhazred’s Eibon’s, & von Junzt’s works. In each case I am frankly confessing the fakery involved.” It has been suggested that at least one version of the Necronomicon was written by Lovecraft under the pseudonym Abdul “The Mad Arab” Alhazred, although we have no evidence of this. Some of the other three versions were written by others to capitalize on the idea. Herman Slater, owner of the Magickal Childe bookstore and publishing house in New York, is mentioned as being involved in the Schlangekraft version of the Necronomicon, edited by “Simon”.[2] “Simon” was Peter Levenda. With Slater as the sponsor, Jim Wasserman of the OTO working on layout and design, a person calling himself Khem Set Rising designing the sigils, and Levenda creating the text, this version of the Necronomicon came out in 666 hardcover copies in 1977.[3] They certainly knew that it was a work of fiction. I don’t know who seized upon Lovecraft's idea and wrote some of the other three versions. The Avon Books edition was edited by L. K. Barnes. Either way, it is certain that it is a very recent work of fiction, a plot device for a great series of horror stories.

2) The second method involves taking the initials, medials or finals of a sentence to form a word or words. For example, one takes the first letters of the phrase "ChKMh NSThRH (Chokhmah Nesthorah), meaning "secret wisdom", to create a new word "ChN", which means "grace". Another example is the name of God "AGLA", which is a notariqon for four Hebrew words that mean "Thou Art mighty for ever O Lord".
