The Grimorium Verum
The Grimorium Verum is a collection of 26 short stories in the dark fiction and horror genres, edited and compiled by Dean M. Drinkel. The original Grimorium Verum, or ‘The Grimoire of Truth‘, was an 18th century textbook of magic attributed to Alibeck the Egyptian and coveted by ‘The Great Beast’ Aleister Crowley for use in his Magick ceremonies. Taking this inspiration, twenty-six dark fiction authors from around the world each take a letter and use their unique voices to weave magical stories of horror and the fantastic.

Sometimes the rules can change. Sometimes things aren’t how they appear. Sometimes you can just slip through the cracks and end up… somewhere else. What else is there? Is there somewhere else, right beside you, if you could only reach out and touch it? Or is it waiting to reach out and touch you?
