The Church of Satan I: Volume I - Text and Plates:&hellip by Michael A. Aquino
5.0 out of 5 stars One Hell Of A Book!, 23 July 2014
To say that this is a comprehensive history of the Church Of Satan does not whatsoever do the project justice – a work so vast that author Dr. Michael A. Aquino was obliged to split the whole thing into two parts: Volume II being entirely taken up by over 100 Appendices, more than a few of which are invaluable, elsewhere unobtainable, extreme rarities.

As I have said before: nobody “becomes” a Satanist. As Anton LaVey himself put it: “If you have to ask: ‘How do I become… Read more
Occultus by Winter Laake
Occultus by Winter Laake
The only reason genuine Satanists could have in perusing any of Winter Laake’s self-published, poorly produced pantheon of puerile pretentiousness would be in order to see the extent to which the one, true philosophy of the Left Hand Path is repeatedly, relentlessly and blasphemously used, abused, cut, copied, pasted, perverted, defamed and falsely represented by giftless, ego-tripping Nobodies who think that pretending to be “Satan’s Own” will somehow transform them into Somebodys.

Winter Laake’s first two self-published, embarrassingly 3rd-rate literary efforts were immediately recognized by real, genuine Satanists everywhere as nothing less than pretentiously pompous,… Read more
