or The Hen with the Golden Eggs
by Darcy Kuntz
Of dubious origin and with no claim to antiquity other than purporting to incorporate the wisdom of the past, this famous book of "Black Magic" first surfaced at the end of the 18th century. Although many similar magical grimoires were published at the time, books containing ancient hidden knowledge, but with no traceable history, The Black Pullet remains the most outstanding of these works.
The anonymous author disavows any connection to Black Magic, yet details the construction of a series of talismanic rings and their uses in magical practice. The various talismans assure the individual the use of unique powers such as proficiency in all spoken languages, the power to discover hidden secrets, and invisibility.
The most wonderful ability granted by the talismans is the power to produce the Black Pullet, otherwise known as the Hen that lays the Golden Eggs. The ability to master all "Secret Sciences," including necromancy and the conjuration of unseen spirits, is granted to the person who achieves the manufacture of this incredible hen, along with the power to discover hidden treasures a source of unlimited wealth!
