Peter Levenda


“Yes, I am saying that Peter Levenda stole my book“ Tracy Twyman
“But since literally [Peter Levenda] stole one of my manuscripts and published it at HarperCollins with his jack-off Simon pseudonym, I no longer talk to him”
Tracy Twyman, April 2009
“About the Necronomicon: Levenda gets very defensive if you suggest that it was fake, or that Simon is his pen name (even though someone at HarperCollins recently leaked a document to the public proving that Levenda is getting paid as the author of the Necronomicon books). “
Tracy Twyman, June 2008

Wikipedia

Peter Levenda is an American author who focuses primarily on occult history. He is best known for his book Unholy Alliance, which is about Esoteric Hitlerism and Nazi occultism.

Occultist Alan Cabal wrote in 2003 that Levenda was the writer with the pseudonym of “Simon”, the author of the Simon Necronomicon, a grimoire that derives its title from H. P. Lovecraft‘s fictional Necronomicon, featured in Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos stories.[1] The United States Copyright Office registration for Simon’s Gates of the Necronomicon lists the author as Peter Levenda, whose pseudonym is Simon.[2] In 2013, Levenda told journalist Joseph Flatley of The Verge that he was not “Simon”.[3]

Peter Levenda is a native of the Bronx, New York but has lived or traveled all over the United States and the world in the course of his life, work and research. As an executive with an American telecommunications manufacturer he was based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for more than seven years. Before that he was one of the first Americans to do business (successfully) in China. He has an MA in Religious Studies and Asian Studies from FIU, and speaks a variety of languages (some of them dead). He was briefly detained at the notorious Nazi sanctuary and interrogation center Colonia Dignidad in Chile, in 1979 during the course of research for Unholy Alliance. He has appeared in numerous television programs for the History Channel, the Discovery Channel, National Geographic, and TNT as an expert on Nazi Germany and especially on the extreme religious and esoteric ideas that formed the Nazi worldview. He has interviewed Nazis, neo-Nazis, Klansmen, occultists, CIA officers, and Islamic terrorists in the course of his research and has visited Chinese prisons and military bases; Buddhist temples; Muslim boarding schools in Indonesia; Russian Orthodox monasteries; mosques in Europe, the United States and Asia; the Palestine Liberation Organization; several voodoo hounforts; the former KGB headquarters (Dzherzinsky Square) in Moscow; has been held at gunpoint in Latin America, and celebrated with a state dinner in Beijing. At the age of seventeen he gate-crashed the funeral for assassinated Senator Robert F. Kennedy at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City, and led the procession out of the cathedral. (He graduated high school later that month.) He was a member of the same front organization — a renegade Ukrainian church in the Bronx — that provided cover for David Ferrie and Jack Martin (suspected co-conspirators in the JFK assassination). In addition, he was an auxiliary police officer for the New York Police Department. His published work has been praised by Norman Mailer, Jim Hougan, Dick Russell, Whitley Strieber, Katherine Neville, and many others. He is or was a member of MENSA, of the American Academy of Religion, of the Association of Former Intelligence Officers, of the Norman Mailer Society, and the T. E. Lawrence Society.

 

Jim Hougan (Foreword)

The roots of coincidence and conspiracy in American politics, crime, and culture are examined in this book, exposing new connections between religion, political conspiracy, and occultism. Readers are taken from ancient American civilization and the mysterious mound builder culture to the Salem witch trials, the birth of Mormonism during a ritual of ceremonial magic by Joseph Smith, Jr., and Operations Paperclip and Bluebird. Not a work of speculative history, this exposé is founded on primary source material and historical documents. Fascinating details are revealed, including the bizarre world of “wandering bishops” who appear throughout the Kennedy assassinations; a CIA mind control program run amok in the United States and Canada; a famous American spiritual leader who had ties to Lee Harvey Oswald in the weeks and months leading up to the assassination of President Kennedy; and the “Manson secret.”
