Until the Society of Extraordinary Readers makes a public statement giving full disclosure of what happened, no one can tell for sure. To act, we need details. But this being a secret society, a public statement could take a while, if it happens at all.
In the meantime, I’ve been asked by my friend, the Keeper (who will, of course, remain anonymous), to let everyone in the literature world know what happened; he will try to do the same from his end. If The Society of Extraordinary Readers was in fact in possession of the Necronomicon, and if it’s true it got stolen over the weekend, we can only assume things will escalate out of control pretty fast.
Sealed. Absolutely hermetic. There is little to no info there, and Keepers I’ve talked to tell me there is no way of getting in without being a member.
Now you understand why, at least for the time being, I have to stop the presses and focus on what can be done from my end. Hopefully, the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge will soon step forward with a statement. I’ll be updating this post periodically until then.
I’ve sent a preliminary draft of it to my friend the Keeper, and he agrees this issue involves everyone in the publishing world, not just a secret society.
We will not ask you or anyone to get involved in this, but we ought to warn you that this is not an ordinary book that got stolen.
We suggest you do your own research about the Necronomicon and decide for yourself if tracking its whereabouts is something you want to get involved with.
