Just like you, I have been searching for good, reliable web resources about the Book of Raziel. There isn't much available on the Internet. But, I did find some good web page links to sites that go in depth.
After more than 30 years study of Sefer Yetzirah and other Qabalistic texts, I am always skeptical of what I read, but these few sites offer some great perspectives. I always want to study what others have to say and compare it with other ideas and concepts including my own. Out of that comes the common denominator.
