FROM THE PUBLISHER:
This enchiridion for the Black Dragon is the first volume for expounding sorcery associated with the dirt track road, which must forever be adumbrated by the outer precinct of the crooked path, for this inner sanctum presents the dirt ridden yet adamantine road which leads to the Black Dragon and the great mystery of telluric sorcery. It began as a realisation of a work that was formed by the Dragon’s Column, this being the working group that went on to contribute towards Andrew Chumbley writing The Dragon Book of Essex. Yet there are some stark contrasts to be made between this book and that, for the reader must know this is an earth bound book. This is to be realised by turning away from the heavens and looking beyond into the defiled depths of those who have fallen into the coils of Azde-Ahab-Haris. By having recognised this rhizomatic network of endless possibilities, the demiurgic force imbibing the ophidian flow has placed confidence in those who work with both hands by transmitting this work. As a result, the book leads the reader through a sequence of ritual actions and interactions with specific daemons associated with points on the Black Dragon, with each point acting as a gateway for reifying the very principle of Being through the notion of becoming. Anticipatory in nature, the trappings of ceremonial magic are here discarded. The sorcerer instead locates the ritual space through flesh in relation to the horizon, the Proklosis Ring. At this non-place the sorcerer is encouraged to follow the instructions and insights contained in this grimoire, for there are steps and measures which must be taken to traverse the Black Dragon’s form. By so doing the horizon becomes the coiled serpent, and the earth becomes the gateway through which to engage with the ophidian source for all our Otherness.
A central motif to the book are the ordeals and rites which are expected to be performed, these are not restricted to an annual cycle, however, but are best placed and enacted at times which are felt to be appropriate. But be warned, the complete ritual text has yet to be published, and therefore what you have here is a guide towards being able to perform the rituals up to the Dragon’s Head. Of course, there are many ritual text extracts featured throughout the Volume I, however, it became apparent that anyone who wished to undertake this ritual ordeal must first comprehend what is being asked of them. At the heart of this book’s conception is the Black Dragon, the enshadowed version of Draconis, this entity predates the stellar manifestation, for Azde-Ahab-Haris was born from void. Interred at the moment space became something from nothing, the Black Dragon buried a fragment of its form across the cosmos. Together these points continue to sing the songs of liberation from the gravitational pull of destiny. For the sorcerer, this relationship is born from wanting to experience in a ritual setting the ex-carnation of Self, this is to be accomplished by fragmenting the mundane so that it might reveal the sorcerous-self. The Black Dragon under this guise is a conduit for developing crooked path sorcery, albeit this remains above the auspices of the inner sanctum of the dirt track road.
Lying at the very heart of the Dragon’s Column there emerged a hidden route, crooked and coarse, where the sorcerer placed the wondering mind upon the Dragon’s anvil, and from this conjunction came the scales of the Black Dragon, which then merged with that of the void to make the sorcery presented amongst the pages of this book. Cast from the one who founded The Dragon’s Column and who introduced Andrew Chumbley to the ophidian flow, the Et Nigrum Draconicum presents for the very first time the quintessence of working with the telluric Azde-Ahab-Haris…the Black Dragon.
The companion cards, “Icons of the Black Dragon,” serve to facilitate the workings of the text as a point of contact with the forces described therein.

FROM THE PUBLISHER:
Icons of the Black Dragon, in an act of pure cartomancy, have been made to enhance practices concerned with the sorcerous work that lies ahead. Each card depicts a daemon, djinn, or sigil relating to those who follow the Black Dragon. Each set has accordingly been designed so that one can open the Gateway to the Beyond and enter the Lair of the Black Dragon, and as such each card shall act as a cypher. Drawing directly from the grimoire, “Book of the Black Dragon,” each image is accompanied by a title and thus the adept will be able to find the corresponding text for each card.
