The 13 Gates of the Necronomicon: A Workbook of Magic by Donald Tyson

Thirteen points of entry.

Locked gateways to magical realms of immense power—and danger, for the uninitiated.

Within these pages are thirteen keys.

Enter the Necronomicon and be forever changed.

In this authentic sourcebook for magicians, occult scholar Donald Tyson usesH. P. Lovecraft’s story elements and characters—alien races, ancient sorceries, the Dreamlands, deities, witches, and ghouls—as the foundation for a workable and coherent system of modern ritual magic based on the thirteen true zodical constellations. This authoritative guide presents the essential elements of the Necronomicon mythos for use in esoteric practices such as dream scrying, astral projection, magical rites, and invocations.

If you want an in depth breakdown of lovecraft's stories, look no further. I found it quite lacking on occult theory nor did it really make you think. Really just recites information from the mythos and then gives you an according access ritual. Again... handy if you want a Lovecraftian Mythos dictionary, so to speak. At least in my opinion. So not a waste, just not what I was looking for.
