Means "Book of the Dead," in Greek. An occult-book *title*, not an actual book, made famous by writer H.P. Lovecraft. Several questionable versions of the Necronomicon were released in the 1970's, although the Avon version is translated from genuine Sumerian texts. The various Necronomicons have no connection to Lovecraft except for the title, which was added as a publicity stunt.
"The Necronomicon was first published about 40 years after H.P. Lovecraft died."
