Black Friday is coming. But, you'll have more to look forward to than just Turkey leftovers on that dark day...

The long-awaited release date for BEARING THE DEVIL'S MARK, the debut authored book from Purging Talon Executive Director and Church of Satan Magister Matt G. Paradise, has been set for Christmas Day 2007. However, pre-orders for the book will begin on the 23rd of November: BLACK FRIDAY!

from the back cover...

"Bearing The Devil's Mark is a bold and no-nonsense treatise on the subject of Satanism -- not from the perverse pen of bitter and jealous Christians or even their pagan counterparts, but straight from the Satanic perspective itself! Through both personal observation and established fact, Bearing The Devil's Mark taps into the vein of the world's most feared religion and presents its undiluted insight on the human condition. Sex, love, politics, technology, the God religions, and more -- all brought to you by someone with over 25 years of actively living the Satanic philosophy."

and a quote from Peter H. Gilmore, High Priest of the Church of Satan...

"[Bearing The Devil's Mark] is a well-wrought and welcome volume! You emerge from these gathered musings as a starkly misanthropic curmudgeon, and your tart observations are just the proper lashes deserved by the objects of your attention. Bravo!"

Other details...

Bearing The Devil's Mark
ISBN: 978-0-6151-7668-0
200 pages, 6" x 9" softcover, perfect binding
Front Cover Photo by Melanie Laetitia Mantis
Cover Image: “Sigil of Apocalypse” by Diabolus Rex

Pre-orders will be handled directly through the Purging Talon website ( http://www.purgingtalon.com ) from its Books section. The benefit to pre-ordering is that you will be first in line when the book ships... the earlier you buy, the earlier your copy will go out. And it also contributes to quicker restocking during the early weeks of the book's release, which makes everyone happy.

In the meanwhile, we would appreciate your participation in the promotion of this book. Here are some utterly painless ways in which you can do that...

1) Join The BTDM MySpace page ( http://www.myspace.com/bearingthedevilsmark ) as a friend, and ask your friends to do the same. On our MySpace page, you'll also find an ad graphic that you can post on your website or MySpace page. Just follow the posted directions. And we'd rather you hotlinked to the graphic (as the directions ask) rather than host it yourself because we will be updating the graphic as we get closer to release date. Ideally, we would like each and every person who is a member of the Purging Talon MySpace group (or any of our MySpace pages, for that matter) to also join the Bearing The Devil's Mark MySpace page. Please consider it. It only takes a minute and it would be greatly appreciated.

2) If you're on MySpace, consider also putting BTDM in your Top 8 Friends. Visibility is going to be everything in the promotion of the book, so we would be incredibly psyched to see us posted high in your MySpace Friend list: the higher, the better. (You might also want to subscribe to BTDM's MySpace blog as well, seeing as we'll be posting any updates and press on the book there. A text link to do so is provided on the page.)

3) Discuss the upcoming book on message boards, chat rooms, and newsgroups. Of course, you should always make sure there are no rules against unauthorized promotional posts wherever you decide to do this, but we'd really like to get the word out about this book. Feel free to use the ad graphic's code mentioned in #1 as well so people know where to go for details.

4) Tell even your offline friends about it. Because some people might never run into news about BTDM on the Internet and YOU might be the only link between them and the book.

I should tell you that I am incredibly thrilled to be finally releasing this 14-year collection of my writings on Satanism. And perhaps you'll be equally as thrilled to read it. Thanks to all who buy it, read it, promote it, and of course, a special thanks to those who have supported Purging Talon for all of these years. Hail to you!

Happy Birthday, Jesus! BEARING THE DEVIL'S MARK is now available for purchase through www.purgingtalon.com from its Books section!

Here's what others are saying about BTDM...

"[Bearing The Devil's Mark] is a well-wrought and welcome volume! You emerge from these gathered musings as a starkly misanthropic curmudgeon, and your tart observations are just the proper lashes deserved by the objects of your attention. Bravo!"
- Peter H. Gilmore, High Priest of the Church of Satan, and author of The Satanic Scriptures

"Bearing The Devil's Mark is an excellent book and a valuable contribution to the Church of Satan's growing cultural arsenal... Magister Paradise is a master of the straightforward Satanic opinion piece, and is easily one of the best communicators in the Church of Satan. Paradise stamps his own unique character on essays ranging from light, humorous pieces to valuable research and serious works which will no doubt serve as excellent guides for Satanists who are new to the Church of Satan."
- Rev. Jack Malebranche, author of Androphilia: A Manifesto

"Bearing the Devil's Mark is a milestone in the Year of Satanic Literature and will prove so for quite some time."
- Rev. Bryan Moore, organizer of the Satanic High Mass 6.6.06

"I love your book!... could not put it down! I found the chapter on 'Further Evidence...' to be absolutely superb! What a clear cut summary of our history!... This is truly a classic!!"
- Magister Nemo, administrator of the Temple of the Vampire, and author of The Fire From Within: Nemo on Satanism

If you haven't already done so, we would appreciate your participation in the promotion of this book. Here are some utterly painless ways in which you can do that...

2) If you're on MySpace, consider also putting BTDM in your Top 8 Friends.

3) If you have something praiseworthy to say about the book (rather than merely "thanks for the add!"), please go to BTDM's MySpace page and leave a comment. It helps others make their buying decision.

4) Forward our MySpace bulletins (with links, please)! These bulletins are key to building interest in the book.

5) Discuss the upcoming book on message boards, chat rooms, and newsgroups.

6) Tell even your offline friends about it. Because some people might never run into news about BTDM on the Internet and YOU might be the only link between them and the book.

Thank you for all of your support. We have noticed a continued surge of our banner ads posted throughout MySpace and outside websites, and we are simply blown away by it. Again, my gratitude is yours. By all means, keep it up!

As always, a special thanks to Magister Ventrue for permitting me to advertise on LttD.

A splendid collection of Magister Paradise's essays accumulated from Not Like Most magazine, The Black Flame, and other sources, demonstrating his wit, wisdom, and experiences both in the "inner circle", and world abroad. Subjects range from misanthropic social commentary to multimedia reviews, relationships, aesthetics, racialism, technology, blindlight foolosophies, and even includes a Walpurgisnacht ritual!

Concluding with a bang with the Appendix section, including an interview, Satanism faq, suggested reading, and quite remarkably, The Mail Bag! Like the segment concluding The Church of Satan book by Magistra Blanche Barton, the former lists a series of humorous correspondences from the various poseurs, the would-be spoon-fed, hypocritical christians, and ignoramuses alike.

Greatly complimenting the contents within, gracing the cover of the tome is photography wrought by Witch Melanie Laetitia Mantis, of Magister Diabolus Rex's admirable sculptural art entitled Sigil of Apocalypse.

Overall, the book flows gracefully from one subject covered by a series of essays to another, providing concentrated contemplation for the elitist misanthrope. Bearing The Devil's Mark receives the Devil's Seal of Approval.

As an extra special addition, Magister Paradise was gracious enough to provide his own "Devil's Mark" to My edition.
