Illuminati Hunter



After this brief introduction the following text, apart from the addition of the footnotes, is an exact reprint of a manuscript brought from a relative of the owner of Necromancer, a small English publishing house that who originally published the first in the series: Illuminati Hunter I ‘Adam Weishaupt & The Eye of Horus’ in 1913 but has since vanished.

I have chosen to publish this third book because, as with the first two in the series, I feel it is another fantastic adventure written in the same surprisingly modern way that will resonate with contemporary readers. Also, when checked on the internet, however unbelievable, the story’s details are backed up by all existing records, or so close that it is difficult to think that they could all be coincidence, hence the addition of the footnotes so that you can see for yourself.

If this extraordinary tale is even only partly true it would still throw a completely new light on what is already a remarkable period of history. I am certain you will find it fascinating especially if you are reading the e Book version and use the hyperlinks embedded in the text.

I hope you enjoy discovering the background of this adventure as much as I did and, of course, that you are thrilled by the truly amazing story itself. E. Harrison




Count Bassus &The Statue of Baphomet

By Sebastian P. Drechsler

Republished in Great Britain by Ethan Harrison


This volume is formed from a collection of memoirs discovered in 1898 at the University of Munich in Bavaria. Sebastian Pierre Drechsler was a student and eventually lecturer at Ingolstadt University between 1783 – 1800 before the faculty was closed down. He later went on to become a Professor and then Director of History at Munich University until he retired in 1833. It is understood that the original memoirs were dictated by the scholar on his deathbed (circa 1852) and that he had not wanted them to come to the public’s attention for ‘some time’ after he died so as not to besmirch his fine reputation achieved after many years working within academe. He was on record to have made claim that they would be valuable ‘To those in the future who are already illuminated, or are ready to come into the light.’ It should be noted that the transcript was dictated to an Englishman, a court stenographer by trade, who was not fluent in the Bavarian tongue but the far-sighted Professor had understood that his scribe’s natural dialect was fast becoming the international language of the world and so by means of this translation would secure the text’s widest readership when it eventually saw the light of day. This detail and the fact that it is a vocal record would explain the sound effects, British measurements, occasional vernacular and the constant personal observations of a humorous nature. A. Jones. Editor Necromancer Press 1913.

From a loving Father to a brilliant Son

Know Thyself’

I, Sebastian Drechsler, write these memoirs in the year 1853 from the bed in which I shall die. I write them as testimony to my actions and those of others so that these efforts are not wasted in the abyss of unrecorded time. I swear to my almighty God that, though at times they may sound unbelievable, the story I tell is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. I pray that the text has survived as long as I have intended before coming to the public’s attention and that the incredible tale you are about to read no longer contains a very necessary warning for the world. But if that is not the case then may God Almighty have mercy on your souls.

No great story is without great sorrow or great joy. For, only by possessing both these elemental opposites can it be truly great. I believe our only hope as mortals, and as such players in the stories of our lives, is that, in the end, these two conflicting states become equal. If only in as much that we finally learn, though it is often hard to truly understand why, one cannot exist without the other. I truly believe that the next part of my awesome tale is one such story. I do not say this in vanity or with an overly-inflated view of my own opinions, I simply know that because it contains both these aspects, in such depth and equal measure then, in some way, it must be great.

Firdous: This was the best short story I have read in inkitt as of now..The story is complete and satisfying, but as a greedy person I can always wish for bonus chapters.Dear author what do think about extra chapters?

savannahwolnitzek: Super good story, I think the plot could be worked on a little bit and more character development on Logan and Anne at the beginning. With Logan being a Lycan he doesn’t come off as possessive or dangerous nor does the pack of Lycans that arrive later in the story. Super great writing style and I...
