A book, supposedly of Necromancy, as its title is variously translated Literally as "Telephone Book for the Dead" or Figurtively as "The Yellow Pages of the Dead." Written by Achmed the Mad, or, as he states, Achmed the I Just Get These Headaches, any man who attempts to read even a portion of the book tends to go mad himself. The Librarian, being an ape and not a man, has read the Necrotelecomnicon at least several times with no ill effect. It is likely, though impossible to know for sure, that the book is filled with phone numbers that, when called, connect to a denizen of the Dungeon Dimensions.
