6407Next Lovecraftian Moot, London UK
- Mar 31, 2013April 1 Steve Wilson - The Roots of the Necronomicon
Every Lovecraft fan knows by now that he invented The Necronomicon – and that nevertheless a couple of dozen books purporting to be the fabled Tome have been circulated, particularly the “Simon” Necronomicon and the Robert Turner version.
Now, however, Steve Wilson brings the Easter holiday to a close by revealing that the notion of sorcerers in the backwoods of New England owning books of ancient magical lore - quite separate from the Hoodoo and Pow-Wow traditions – isn’t as unlikely as critics have often stated. In fact, not only is it certain that such people existed, Steve Wilson will reveal how and when Lovecraft could have met them and what the books were!
Warning – talk likely to digress into 2 other areas – things conjured out of the air and books conjured out of the earth. It is worth reading The Dunwich Horror beforehand
