Who is DeNomolos?
By way of an
introduction, DeNomolos is a somewhat elderly gentleman who is a retired
educator. A collector of the unusual, a student of the black arts and a
bizarrist by choice, he entertains a group of friends on a regular basis
in his spacious home, which he describes as a wizard’s keep.
In his library is a collection of magical tomes, esoteric writings,
scrolls and clay tablets from which he does his constant research into
the unknown. Boxes of every shape and description fill any empty shelf
spaces and display cases hold wonders, which only the Master of the Keep
To say that DeNomolos is an eccentric is an understatement. His
knowledge, while humble, is all embracing and he will debate at the drop
of a subject. As Devils advocate and protagonist, he can overwhelm you
with verbiage, which, I suspect, is probably his only real vice.
His magical stories entertain and elucidate at the same time but He does
however, tends to ramble and is often so caught up in his dissertations
that he doesn't notice his guests nodding off.
It has been my privilege to be included in these evening activities and
I have taken it upon myself to describe the proceedings as best I can.
The material herein, was collected over several years and the body of
the work is that of DeNomolos. In truth, some of this material is
duplicated in his other writings. The Egyptian aspect is probably his
forte and he will explain why in his introduction. Armed now with this
information, you may now begin to delve into the remarkably strange
world of DeNomolos. Read now as he explains.
In the late thirties and early forties, I sat in darkened movie theaters
and watched the “B” grade horror movies that provided escape from the
realities of the end of the great depression and the early stages of
World War Two. Highly impressionable, the movies like the “Mummy” and
the “Return of the Mummy” and “Abbott and Costello meet the MUMMY”
stirred something deep inside of me and I decided that I would become an
The whole bottom shelf of my grandfather’s library consisted of the
National Geographic Magazine dating back to the very first issue and I
absorbed every bit of information I could find about Egypt and the
Pyramids. The public library was my next challenge. Primarily it was
just getting past the librarian who sat at the front desk by the
entrance like a big guard dog and barked at the children if they even
thought about going into the reference section.
Archeology and Sociology were not acceptable for young people. We were
expected to read the Hardy Boy Mysteries and things like that. My tastes
ran to the works of Edgar Alan Poe and Lovecraft until I discovered
E.A.Wallis Budge. His books on Egyptian civilization became my constant
companions and opened the doors to what became a life long fascination
with things Egyptian.
It was understood that the roots of most, if not all of the Western
concepts of basic magic, could be traced back to the rites and practices
of ancient Egypt. No one knows where these practices began but the
records identify wizard priests back in the fourth Dynasty.
Egyptian magic was a part of their religion and practitioners taught
that all-natural and supernatural force were gifts from the gods. The
magic was in the action to be sure, but more important were the words,
the names of things, the spoken rites and rituals.
Now you know and perhaps understand my fascination with things Egyptian.
