Interesting, I remember Ryan Parker from Usenet, arguing that the Necronomicon was based on Arabian myth and legend (e.g., Abdul Alhazred fitting into the story of the majnoun, or mad poet). I should see what the shadowy Mr. Harms has to say about it.

Correct, that's what I remembered it as and that's exactly what he argues in this. OTOH, it's nice to have a copy for reference purposes on the shelf.
