Tuesday 5 July 2016 Tuesday: Real-Life Occult Grimoires Edition

So, this week on, I present a list of 20 real-life Occult Grimoires. You know, the sort of forbidden books of secret knowledge that inspired the Necronomicon, except they actually existed!

If you're a gamer who plays or runs historical or modern occult games (Call of Cthulhu, etc), you might find this list extra useful for adding a touch of realism.

As always, if you liked the article please +1, Share, retweet, etc etc.  Thanks!

    1. No, I mean that they are used, in the ways directed in the books (or not, in the case of people being sloppy), and that things happened as a result of people following those instructions.
