Author: Greg F. Gifune, Shane Ryan Staley
A band of desperate criminals...a seemingly deserted farmhouse guarded by the rotting remnants of scarecrows, the echoes of torture and depravity and the whispers of unholy nightmares...a dark night concealing terrible secrets, misery and long-suppressed horrors... One faraway, nearly forgotten night, this night, stands between the forsaken and deliverance, but they are not alone in the darkness. Something demonic dwells within...something luring them toward a separate kingdom...a kingdom of night...a kingdom of evil... A Kingdom Of Shadows... Fear the night.
I'm going to kill the king. A formidable nation is being destroyed by corruption at its very foundation. While clans, guilds, and cults tear at each other for control of the senate, the king rules through manipulation and fear, driven only to expand his power by any means possible. When the reckless bounty hunter Kellson is convicted of crimes he didn't commit, he escapes but he's determined to bring down the king and his decaying government. Running from the authorities, Kellson stumbles into a world thought only to be legend a world of Shadows, an infamous clan of warriors who oppose corruption in any form. Known for their elite skills as fighters and infiltrators, they take in Kellson and begin to teach him their secret skills as insurgents. But Kellson has a bigger plan; he intends to lead a rebellion...if he can master the Shadows' skills and convince them to join him.
Since the beginning of time, the angelic hosts of the High Heavens and the demonic hordes of the Burning Hells have been locked in a struggle for the fate of all Creation. That struggle has now come to the mortal realm...and neither Man nor Demon nor Angel will be left unscathed....

Now, after a lifetime of research and intense calculation, the Vizjerei sorcerer, Quov Tsin, has come to witness Ureh's rebirth for himself. But that which awaits Tsin and his hired band of mercenaries is nothing like what they expected.

NINE GATES OF THE KINGDOM OF SHADOWS... The reissue compact nostalgia "Amethyst Edition" of the original 2009 "Necronomicon Shadows: The Nine Gates of the Kingdom of Shadows" (Liber-9) companion to the authentic Sumerian/Babylonian Liber-N "Necronomicon" (Lapis Edition), the now infamous bestselling classic that launched itself from the modern underground movement known as the Mardukites. "More than simply a book imagined by a fantasy horror writer, or the product of some intensive Mesopotamian investigations in the 1970's, the NECRONOMICON is a piece of human consciousness, a primordial archetype that has existed in the backwaters of the mind for thousands of years. During a "new age" of revivals in ancient paganism and earth oriented spirituality, people have flocked to the ranks of neo-paganism, Wicca, Druidry and Scientology, and for good reason: the state of the world is in demand for a complete shift in human awareness. And while H.P. Lovecraft may have been alluding to such a tradition nearly one hundred years ago (even if only subconsciously) and the 1960's witnessed a gigantic practical rebirth in such traditions, it was really in the late 1970's that a separate but synchronous mainstream awakening occurred: the renewed interest in the the most antiquated Sumerian and Babylonian mysteries, specifically the role of the ANUNNAKI, Great Gods who once roamed the Earth and became the figures of our ancient mythologies..." The Mardukite Research Organization was founded on the Summer Solstice in 2008 during the underground release of "Arcanum" by Joshua Free. At its inception, the group was extraordinarily small but pointedly grew exponentially as soon as it began to make an online internet presence. In 2009, the Mardukite Chamberlains began releasing their underground publications as part of an extraordinarily extensive version of what many people's debut into the realm of Mesopotamian esoterica had been - the Necronomicon. The original versions of the 2009 'Mardukite Core' were all elaborately designed limited edition handcrafted tomes that later only appeared in the consolidated anthology titled 'Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible'. It consisted of the 'Necronomicon (of Joshua Free)' (Liber-N) in June of 2009 and three subsequent titles, 'Necronomicon Liturgy & Lore' (Liber-L), the 'Necronomicon Gatekeeper's Grimoire' (Liber-G) and the 'Nine Gates of the Kingdom of Shadows' or 'Necronomicon Shadows' (Liber-9). Although the entire 'Year-1' anthology has been available exclusively as the 'Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible' for over four years, the 'Mardukite Truth Seeker Press' has decided to release a 'nostalgia edition' in 2012 of the original 'Mardukite Core' for those who are new to the mysteries and to rekindle the original flavor of the mystique that was ascertained by those involved with the early development of the materials. In early 2012 a condensed, compact and abridged edition of the 'Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible' appeared on the scene as a reissue of the original 'lapis edition'. To coincide with this effort, a similarly designed reissue of the remaining 2009 'gem series' (as it was called then) is intended for release. Following popular demand, the previously released 2012 'Lapis Edition' Necronomicon actually included more material than simply 'Liber-N' and thus differed from the original edition, these companions: 'Liber L', 'Liber G' and 'Liber-9', were all designed to match the original format and content as much as possible given the preexisting difference in production style. EDITION NOTE: This is a compact and abridged version excerpting key elements from the complete "Year 1" work of the Mardukite Chamberlains released in the Liber-N]L+G+9 anthology as the "Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible" edited by Joshua Free.
This is a first translation into English of Belyj's reminiscences, observations and philosophical thoughts from his stay abroad from 1921 to 1923. Belyj went through Riga and Kaunas to Berlin where he spent the large part of his journey. Professor Spitzer's attempt at an accurate translation of a complex original is aimed at Belyj specialists as well as a larger audience of cultural historians who can for the first time immerse themselves in the atmosphere of post-WWI Europe as seen through the eyes of this prominent Russian Symbolist writer.
In the kingdom of shadows
Author: Colin Harding, Simon Popple, Manchester Metropolitan University, National Museum of Photography, Film, and Television (Great Britain)
In the Kingdom of Shadows puts flesh on the bare bones of the film industry as it developed in Britain between 1895 and 1915. The authors have selected texts and illustrations to evoke the period. Adopting a thematic rather than chronological approach, chapters look at specific aspects of the reception, exhibition, and numerous applications of film. Introductory essays for each chapter serve to place a selection of contemporary extracts and illustrations in context.
[Mardukite Heritage Edition: A reissue of an otherwise cycled out-of-print edition kept available for review and posterity as part of the developmental legacy of the Mardukite Research Organization, founded 2008.] The most coveted materials from the Mardukite Research Organization return to print in the long anticipated anthology: DELOMELANICON - The Nine Gates of the Kingdom of Shadows (de Umbrarum Regni Novem Portis) edited by Joshua Free.

The greatest kept secrets of the ages are revealed simply for newcomers and adepts alike! Come and initiate yourself into the deepest teachings of the esoteric underworld! Uncover the mysteries of the primordial origins of creation and the universal dragon, the appearance of the Sumerian Anunnaki and their affect on Babylonian traditions, the use of cuneiform tablets from the Nabu priest-scribes of Mesopotamia to open stargates and interdimensional portals also echoed in the Egyptian Star-Religion. Discover as these primeval traditions unfold across time and space on the earth, giving rise to new forms Kabbalistic knowledge such as found in the mysticism of Judeo-Christian traditions as well as Gnosticism, the European Dragon Legacy and the Danubian Druids known to the Celts. As the mystery tradition unfolds, new public awareness is brought to the veils by the medieval magicians of 'high magick' and sorcerers using 'ceremonial grimoires' to affect consciousness and manipulate reality using timeless, though now corrupted, techniques. As more humans open up to these 'new worlds', the rise of Rosicrucians, the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, works on Enochian Magic and those from Aleister Crowley spawn a new generation or New Age, incorporating the most recently discernible transmissions from medias such as the "Ninth Gate" movie involving the Aristide Torchia mythos, Kenneth Grant, the O.T.O and A.A., other Typhonian (Tiamat) mysteries, H.P. Lovecraft, the Cthulhu Cult, the Simon Necronomicon, rivalry of sects aligned to either Marduk & Enki or Inanna-Ishtar and other participants of an "alien illuminati" to this day!

Jeff McGrath has recently lost his job, and he and his wife Eden are having trouble making ends meet. Saddled with a mountain of growing bills, the prospect of being evicted from their apartment and an enigmatic homeless man who lives on the steps of their building and seems inexplicably drawn to the young couple, things look exceedingly bleak.

But what initially seems like the break of a lifetime soon becomes an unimaginable nightmare Jeff may never escape. Because an evil as ancient and elusive as the sands of time has come calling, nothing is as it seems, nothing happens by accident or chance, and one man’s dream-come-true may very well be another man’s descent into inconceivable horror.
