The Satanic Bible originally had an introduction by Burton Wolfe, who also wrote “The Devil’s Avenger” the first bio on Anton LaVey. The introduction was replaced without Anton’s consent many years after his death. The old adage “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” sums it up nicely. I have decided to take it upon myself to make, for now, 9 signed and numbered copies with the original introduction affixed to the pages. Because of a legal maneuver, Karla receives what was supposed to be my share of the book royalties from Anton’s first three books that Diane edited. Zeena, who publicly disavowed Anton, of all people, receives the lion's share of the book royalties. This fact is a travesty that the present day “church of Satan” does not brag about. Why would they? Their central text is paid to a woman who is openly against everything her “un-father” represents, even striking the name “LaVey” from her own.
So I’ve decided the best thing to do is make a collectors item out of the contemporary printing of The Satanic Bible by amending it to be more like “the original” and fix the problem of the “new introduction” for readers and collectors to enjoy. I have 9 copies for now and am pricing them at $99.90 each. Each has the Burton Wolfe intro replacing the new one. Each one is signed and numbered and I will inscribe the book upon request.
I will be using the money to get serpent scales tattooed around my neck and for travel expenses. If you would like to support this endeavor I accept credit cards, paypal, venmo, cashapp and crypto!
