There is no "Lovecraftian version of the Necronomicon" outside of the Cthulhu Mythos stories, though a few gag versions have been printed. There are books which have no connection other than the neat-sounding name (for instance, H.R. Giger published a collection of artwork under the name a few years back -- I have a copy, and understand they're rather valuable now). HPL invented the whole thing, silly boy, and "Abdul Alhazred" was a childhood name Lovecraft adopted when playing Arabian Nights games. If you would like to make these purile claims, back 'em up with some evidence. You might also ask yourself how the celts made a copy of _any_ book when they lacked a written language. Whether you're making this stuff up yourself or getting it from some other moron, you really should know better. --- Hymen * Origin: Bash a fundy for jeezus. (1:380/16)
