    "Awakening and Eye-Opening" Messages like this one come only once in an age, as the ideas of the former paradigm have nearly completely crystallized and the stagnancy demands a response... that is the Call of Cthulhu. Venger gives literal voice to the internal murmurings reverberating throughout the Left-Hand Path. By embracing the Cthulhu Mythos, the "fictional" deities and myths of HP Lovecraft, he not only encourages the reader to challenge themselves to see the awe and wonder of their potential selves, but he calls into the validity of all religions and the symbols they use. In a world of instant connectivity, the averaging of every individual into mediocrity, the ever increasing limits placed on possibility, Venger Satanis builds on sound philosophy and invokes powerful symbols to remind us all that we can be more than we are now. Read and be inspired.

    "Eye opening book" I felt the same way about this book as I did about the Satanic Bible the first time I read it. It fleshed out a lot of my own views and also gave me some new ones, and also a new paradigm. I thought the book was excellently written, very accessible language for someone who is new to the Cthulhu Mythos, with an explanation of the Gods contained within. I myself am not new to the Mythos and needed no explanation. Venger Satanis deserves credit in the Occult community, in my opinion for his pioneering in the publicized worship of the Ancient Ones. The closest anyone (to my knowledge) has ever come is with the Simon Necronomicon or the text of Al-Azif, which contains nearly impossible criteria for the worship of the Ancient Gods. Overall, I would definately reccomend it for fans of HP Lovecraft and the Mythos and to anyone searching for enlightenment in their lives that also is drawn to the dark side of things.

    "Venger is on to something..." I think Venger is on to something here. A fusion of the Cthulhu mythos, Satanism, Buddhism, and his own idealism which has philosophical value; even for a readership not deeply connected to Lovecraft fiction. Venger is providing a tool for personal development and growth; a way to transform consciousness that I believe is the fundamental foundation for human existence. Putting aside the battle over the sources used to write the book, it is apparent to me that Venger finds inspiration in the Cthulhu paradigm. It is that inspiration that is the driving force in achieving his goals. Sharing this work is paramount in his own human development; how can he be spited for that? Any critical thinker can put aside the semantics of the journey and focus on the destination. SIN

    "The Cult of Cthulhu Bible - Unimpressive" This is not a well-written or interesting book. The author knows the works of Lovecraft, Ligotti, Phil Hine, and Anton LaVey, but doesn't seem to understand any of them well, or at least does not notice when his own ideas doesn't correspond to them. (I pass no judgment on the Gurdjieff material, as I'm not familiar with it.) Much of the book is devoted to repeated claims that Cult members are free to believe whatever they want. The book also claims that the author has a direct line to the Old Ones and that the world will be engulfed in a holocaust when they return, which somewhat narrows the field of acceptable beliefs. A substantial portion of the Cthulhu Mythos section can be found word-for-word on Wikipedia and at other sites. It would have been more helpful if the author had explained what these beings mean in his personal pantheon. The ritual portion of the book includes the author's own system of black magic, which consists... More > of commands to awaken followed by three three-line poems to be said three times a day for a year. The book is rounded out by the "Nine Angles," in a section modeled on the Enochian chants at the end of the Satanic Bible. Overall, this section is sketchy and incomplete by any standards. The author is also an advocate of ritual murder, and the book presents women as sex objects. Those who object to either of these will be highly displeased with those sections. I should add that the OCR in the PDF version is poorly done, making running searches via Acrobat completely useless. Why, in a world with such authors as Phil Hine, Peter Carroll, Anton LaVey, Don Webb, Michelle Belanger, Konstantinos, S. Jason Black, Christopher Hyatt, Kenneth Grant, Michael Bertiaux, Stephen Flowers, etc., anyone needs this book is beyond me. It will probably receive some recognition for the title, and those who have read little on dark side occultism might be impressed. Knowledgeable occultists will likely find its contents highly disappointing.< Less
