2019 Author of the Year: Daniel Harms
Author and researcher Daniel Harms is one of the most consistent writers covering Lovecraftian fiction and many of its offshoot topics, such as the legendary Necronomicon. In recent years, however, Harms has expanded upon his literary catalog and has published a bountiful treasure of occult knowledge, which includes titles such as; Balloonists, Alchemists, and Astrologers of the Nineteenth Century: The Tale of George and Margaret Graham and The Long-Lost Friend: A 19th Century American Grimoire. Harms recently teamed up with author James R. Clark and was able to release Of Angels, Demons & Spirits: A Sourcebook of British Magic and The Book of Oberon: A Sourcebook of Elizabethan Magic.
Harms’ work as a writer has also been entrenched in its fair share of controversy. One of Harms’ earlier releases entitled The Necronomicon Files, which was co-authored with John Wisdom Gonce III, set the topic of the Simon Necronomicon aflame. Still, Daniel Harms is respected and has set a fine example of a true occult scientist and author. He does not feed into the mayhem of gossip or superstition but provides a clear and concise presentation that is consistent with historical data. Time and time again, Harms has risen from the ashes of controversy “unharmed” and with a beacon of light for all to see clearer. Check out his blog page Papers Falling From An Attic Window. It is with great honor that I am happy to announce Daniel Harms as the recipient of the Warlock Asylum International News 2019 Author of the Year Award. We wish you all the best in your literary and earthy endeavors.
