The Necronomicon.

New York, NY: Avon Books, ND (circa 1990s). Reprint. Softcover. Small pocket paperback. (x) 224pp, b&w illustrations. This copy SIGNED AND WITH TWO ORIGINAL HAND-DRAWINGS AND INSCRIPTIONS BY LARRY K. BARNES who (with Peter Lavenda and James Wasserman) was one of the trio who achieved the publication of the "Necronomicon". Larry K. Barnes (1952-2001), known as "Kozmo" to his friends, was largely responsible for the mechanics of the publication of the book. Barnes was fascinated by UFOs and delighted in drawing aliens and alien landscapes. The first drawing he did here is in the margin of the first page "Cthulu Calls" which is largely a warning about using the magick of the book. Barnes's drawing shows an alien face with a comic type "speech bubble" saying "As others ignored this warning, so shall you human" - and separately - "So shall you." The second drawing, is at the bottom of the "acknowledgements page" (which references Barnes) and has a distorted face, UFO and pyramids etc. and the text "Welcome to my Hyper Synchronous Distorted Dimension ... Signed and Printed L K Barnes." The book itself is an Avon Books reprint of the Simon version of the Necronomicon which includes the introduction to the second edition. Cover shows a little light shelf-wear, small diagonal cut across top corner of front cover, a little light shelf-wear and a crease down the spine, inside covers toned but unmarked. Overall a tight, unmarked VG+ copy with an obviously unique inscription. Item #69550
