Well researched and annotated, Necronomicon Files is an odd little book I read over a cold winter's week in a haunted dormitory over Christmas Break at the turn of the Millenium. It mainly explores the pop cultural effect of Lovecraft's body of weird tales. It consists of a series of essays discussing such things as the phantom history of Lovecraft's Necronimcon, its effects on the magical community, hoaxes of its existence and speculation as to the source of Lovecraft's inspiration for the fearful tome.
