The Book Of Histories
Chapter One
The History Of The soteri! Or"er Of Dagon
The name of our Order is derived from the story The Shadow Over
Innsmouth by the New England horror and fantasy writer H.P.
Lovecraft, (!"#$"%&'. (ritten in November)*ecember, "% and
+ublished in "%,, it was the only boo- of HPL.s fiction to be
+ublished and distributed in his lifetime.
Lovecraft.s fiction, first +ublished in the /merican +ul+
maga0ines such as (eird Tales, +resents an internally consistent
cosmology, constructed through the literary reali0ations of the
author.s dreams and intuitive im+ulses. This cosmology came to be
-nown as the 12thulhu 3ythos4, after its central deity. These
stories and novels contain hidden meanings and magic-al formulae
un-nown even to their creator.
Lovecraft suffered from an acute inferiority com+le5, which
+revented him from +ersonally crossing the /byss in his lifetime.
He remained a withdrawn and lonely writer who retained a
rational, s-e+tical view of the universe, des+ite the glim+ses of
+laces and entities beyond the world of mundane reality, which
his dream e5+eriences allowed him. He never learned the true
origin of the tremendous vistas of cosmic strangeness that
haunted his dreams. He never reali0ed that he was himself the
High Priest 6Ech$Pi$El., the Pro+het of the dawning /eon of
7efore he died, Lovecraft left behind the 18ilver 9ey to the
:ltimate ;ate4 in the form of <andol+h 2arter, his most develo+ed
character who a++ears in no less than four tales. This character
assumed an inde+endent e5istence during and after Lovecraft.s
life, a created being called a thoughtform, and -nown in Tibet as
a Tulpa. =or many years <andol+h 2arter waited in the +arallel
world that men and women of this world can sometimes visit in
dreams for someone to discover the clues to the 3ythos that
Lovecraft had unconsciously revealed in his stories. >n "!
?<andol+h 2arter?, (also -nown as 8teven ;reenwood' +ublicly
issued the Manifesto of the Aeon of Cthulhu and announced the
reemergence of the Esoteric Order of *agon.
<andol+h 2arter originated the term the 23 Current to describe
the informing magic-al current of the Order, which emanates from
the archety+e of 2haos (or 9aos' called by Lovecraft ?/0athoth?.
/ yet un+ublished wor- by <andol+h 2arter entitled Liber 23 is
+resently being incor+orated in a novel under +re+aration, Tales
of the Club of the Seven Dreamers
