Anton Szandor LaVey - The Satanic Bible

The Satanic Bible: Anton Szandor LaVey

One might expect The Satanic Bible at least to offer a few prancing demons or a virgin Buy the book heresacrifice, but if you hopped this train expecting a tour of the house of horrors, you're on the wrong ride. Far from a manual for conquering the realms of earth, air, fire, and water, The Satanic Bible is Anton LaVey's manifesto of a new religion separate from the "traditional" Judeo-Christian definitions of Satanism. While LaVey rails against the deceit of the Christian church and white magicians, he busily weaves his own deceptions.
The Satanic Bible claims the heritage of a horde of evil deities--Bile', Dagon, Moloch, and Yao Tzin to name a few - but these ancient gods have no coherent connection between each other or to Satanism, except that all have been categorized by Christianity as "evil." Calling on these ancient names like a magician shouting, "Abracadabra," LaVey attempts to shatter the classical depiction of Satanism as a cult of black mass and child sacrifice. As the smoke clears, he leads us through a surprisingly logical argument in favor of a life focused on self-indulgence. The Satanic Bible is less bible and more philosophy (with a few rituals thrown in to keep us entertained), but this philosophy is the backbone of a religion that, until LaVey entered the scene, was merely a myth of the Christian church. It took LaVey, and The Satanic Bible, to turn this myth into a legitimate public religion.

The Tomb And other Tales: H.P. Lovecraft
Real Horror for Real Lovers of the Occult Horror genre,

Three words can describe this book: tongue in cheek. One of the best written works of horror fiction that any author can ever write about! Only Lovecraft fully knows the potential of using the occult in the work of fiction! This book is a must along with the other books that Ballantine has compiled for Lovecraft! It is also a must for those interested in using Lovecraft's fiction for their rituals, too! I suggest all Masonic Temple of Satan and Order of the Horned Goat
members to read up on this.
