[On being told that the Necronomicon is fiction.]
Yes, BUT since Lovecraft's invention of the name of this book (along with some of its rituals which he "borrowed" from Satanist lore) an actual Necronomicon has been published containing a blend of pseudo-Sumerian and Goetic ritual, with names crafted to resemble those of Lovecraft’s invented monster gods. One version is a compendium of satanic knowledge by somone calling himself, Simon, the Magicke Childe. More importantly for many would be Black Magicians who bought copies, it had performable rites and plenty of arcane sigils (magical symbols) to be used. To quote from a Satanic author of various works: "Satanists understand that any prop that is sufficiently stimulating can be used in personal ritual, so if the materials contained in this book send the proper chill down your spine, then certainly avail yourself of them. As Magistra Nadramia has said: 'Working with and expressing your emotions in the ritual chamber using this particular little black book is perfectly valid Satanic magic. A careful look at The Satanic Bible will tell you that Dr. LaVey encouraged the magician to use any and all elements of fiction, fact and fancy to create his Intellectual Decompression Chamber.'"
And certainly the violent and evil man my daughter married was a self-confessed Satanist (Praise God he has repented of all that and is now saved and filled with the Holy Spirit) who at the time read the Necronomicon and worked hard at practicing what it said to summon up demons to do his bidding!!!
So, regardless of Mr. Lovecraft's "invention" of it in a work of fiction, it is a very real book today containing ancient occultic spells and sigils which very real people are using trying to summon up the demons. And, trust me, if they are wanting Satan to come to them he most certainly will.
