Lucifer's Lexicon: The Portable L.A. Rollins

Expanded Edition of Lucifer’s Lexicon by L.A. Rollins Now Available

Available now, a new expanded edition of Lucifer’s Lexicon by L.A. Rollins. Purchase from Amazon, Nine-Banded Books or Underworld Amusements. Inspired by Ambrose Bierce’s The Devil’s Dictionary, Louis Andrew Rollins first unsheathed his lexicographer’s lance in the pages of marginal political periodicals during the mid-1980s. At a time when Objectivist orthodoxy and Cold War political theater dominated libertarian discourse, Rollins’ distinctive brand of irreverent irony stood out. He skewered shibboleths and dethroned dogmas from all quarters, and his trenchant jeu de mots made a lasting impression in the minds of many readers. In 1987, Loompanics Unlimited released the first edition of Lucifer’s Lexicon, […]

Church of Satan Sigil of Baphomet

The Bowery Boys Review “New York is Hell” ( Benjamin De Casseres, Peggy Nadramia) In a terrific anthology of his writings New York Is Hell, the breadth of his obsession with New York — and his disgust at those changes he deems withering — is on full display.  As Peggy Nadramia writes in the intro, “DeCasseres was writing about New York a century ago, but his complaints are identical to mine: Things have changed — the great watering-holes are gone — you can’t have a good time anymore. Don’t all we old-timers say the same thing?” Read the full review at boweryboyshistory.com. […]
