One might expect The Satanic Bible at
least to offer a few prancing demons or
a virgin sacrifice,
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.

last, the collected wisdom, humor, and dark observations
by the founder of The Church of Satan. The Devil's Notebook
is the first original collection of LaVey's writings
to be published in two decades. The High Priest speculates
on such topics as nonconformity, occult faddism, erotic
politics, the "Goodguy Badge," demoralization
and the construction of artificial human companions.
Like P.T. Barnum, Ben Hecht and H.L. Menken before him,
LaVey zeros in on humankind's limitless capacity for
self deciet and self-denial.
Throughout the explicit pages of THE SATANIC WITCH, Anton
Szandor LaVey dares to say what many dread to know. After
many years of tutelage in the dark side of human behavior-as
a police photographer, carny hand and burlesque house musician-Anton
LaVey rips the lid off the forbidden knowledge of seduction
Finished shortly before his death, Satan Speaks is written
in the same witty and insightful manner
as "The Devil's Notebook". Anton Szandor LaVey,
notorious founder of the Church of Satan, died on October
29, 1997, days after completing his final contribution to
Satan Speaks! Satan Speaks! collects together sixty unorthodox,
paradoxical and humorous essays by the most misunderstood
man in America. Marilyn Manson pays tribute to Anton LaVey

LaVey, provides a poignant introduction.

Others simply dismiss him as an entertaining charlatan. What
secrets lurk within the man who shaved his head on Walpurgisnacht,

Church of Satan:
Blanche Barton, Anton LaVey's authorized biographer, gives
a straight-from-the-shoulder account
of the many strange and sensational events (some heavily documented
by a media blitz, others related for the first time anywhere)
that surrounded LaVey and his thousands of followers as they
ushered in a new era of indulgence and carnality, based on
pleasure instead of self-denial.
"On the altar of the Devil, up is down, pleasure is pain,
darkness is light, slavery is freedom, and madness is sanity.
The Satanic ritual chamber is the ideal setting for the entertainment
of unspoken thoughts or a veritable palace of perversity.
Now, one of the Devil's most devouted disciples gives a detailed
account of all the traditional Satanic rituals. Here are the
actual texts of such forbidden rites as the Black Mass and
Satanic Baptisms for both adults and children."

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..
