 Dagon - The Mind-N-Magick Paganpedia
Dagon was a major northwest Semitic god, reportedly a god of grain and agriculture, worshipped by the early Amorites, by the people of Ebla and Ugarit, and a major god, perhaps the chief god, of the Biblical Philistines.
In the Tanakh, Dagon is particularly the god of the Philistines with temples at Beth-dagon in the tribe of Asher (Joshua 19.27), in Gaza (Judges 16.23, which tells soon after how the temple is destroyed by Samson as his last act).
Dagon is sometimes identified with Matsya, the fish avatar of Krishna.

The Tradition behind the EOD was also elaborated stylistically in terms of the regeneration of cultic-elements from ancient Sumerian and Babylonian religions, preserved historically though the rituals of Ancient Egypt; the Indo-European witch-cult of the Middle Ages; and, most recently, encoded within the fictional mythos of a neurasthenic New England writer of pulp horror fiction.

It is the work of our initiates to explore this realm of the cosmic Imagination, to forge their own connections with the forces and entities which lie beyond human awareness, and hence to incarnate strange children in the matrix of imagination.
How they do this is conditioned by their inherent means of expression -- writing, painting, carving, drawing, etc. The Esoteric Order of Dagon is a magical order, but recognises that magic covers a much wider field than might be immediately apparent.
The Esoteric Order of Dagon is a body of initiates who are working with the magical potential of imagination, as embodied in the work of supernatural and occult fiction of such writers as H.P. Lovecraft, Sax Rohmer, Arthur Machen, M.R. James, Bram Stoker, and many others in the genre.
