The Book of the Damned was the first iconoclastic book written by Charles Hoy Fort and was first published in 1919. As the original edition is rare, and, as the book contains many errors, I am making this hypertext edition available with some of my notes. This work is not completed, and I am still seeking out many more of Fort's sources; but, I hope that others may find this a helpful and ready copy for their own reference use. All of the footnotes are the editor's work, the text is that of the 1919 edition, and, the original pagination is identified within square brackets.

After many years of sleeping in his coffin, the vampire Lestat awakens only to find that the world has changed and he wants to be a part of it. He gathers a following and becomes a rock star only to find that his music awakens the ancient Queen Akasha and she wants him to become her king... Written by Andrew Main

Being a Damned Soul is considered the ultimate downfall and often reserved for the most evil of characters since only the most sinister of individuals usually gives the audience enough hatred that they see eternal damnation as a suitable form of punishment. Most Purely Evil villains are reserved for this, and those who cross the Moral Event Horizon will be susceptible as well.

However, some Damned Souls can continue to plague the living after their death, becoming Lesser Demons or Poltergeists .

Sometimes, the damnation does not have to be shown; in some cases, it can apply if they are shown living or dying in a way symbolic that they will be damned (i.e. Judge Claude Frollo being struck down by Notre Dame itself and cast into molten lead; William Afton / Springtrap being incinerated and told that the deepest hole of Hell is reserved for them, etc.)

This is the first of Fort's four books. Fort discusses numerous unexplained phenomena, many of which would today be categorized as UFOs. Fort gives examples of many other strange happenings, rains of fish, blood, insects, and so on.

Fort attempts, almost tongue in cheek, to construct a cosmology which could explain these phenomena. He proposes that the Earth's gravity only extends about 20 miles out, and that there are vast 'lands in the sky' passing above us, normally unseen. Some of these lands trap objects,--the 'super-Sargasso,'--some are shaped like giant spindles or wheels, and others are huge sentient beings.

The Book of the Damned is a very powerful dark magic book. It was once possessed by the Styne Family . It disappeared 100 years ago, but later it was unearthed by Charlie Bradbury from a monastery library in Spain. It was found along with some research notes in the monastery crypt by the friar that buried it.

According to Charlie Bradbury , the Book of the Damned was written about 700 years ago, by a nun named Agnes who dedicated her life to breaking curses after she received "a vision of darkness". The nun locked herself away and, using her own skin for pages and her own blood for ink, she compiled it. [1]

According to the research notes that Charlie found, it has been owned and used by cults and covens, and the Vatican had it for a while. It later came into the possession of a monastery in Spain which burned down years ago. It remained there until Charlie found it.
