Necronomicon

Quick Definition

The Necronomicon is a key book in Lovecraftian mythology, and thus it frequently appears or is referenced by works based on or inspired by this fictional universe.

More specifically, this book is an extremely evil work that contains details about the Elder Gods and other very dark elements of the Lovecraftian universe. Unspeakably perverse spells and rituals are the tip of the iceberg, and merely glimpsing pages from this tome can drive a person insane.

Read it at your own peril.
