Underground Edition 2 is an attempt to create the best possible electronic version of Dr. Anton Szandor LaVey's _The Satanic Bible_.
Many seek it out on the web since it can be hard to find in certain locations, and dangerous to possess in many situations! In those cases a digital copy is much more easily obtained and also more easily hidden from prying eyes.
This is version "2.0" and CONTAINS THE ENTIRE ORIGINAL TEXT. We've added Acrobat bookmarks and added a lot more extra material to the end (listed below).
We did not do the initial book scan, but we spell-checked and corrected the scan, added the original rare "extended dedications" from the first edition (they are practically a bibliography), compiled all four known introductions from various editions (something the publishers/introduction writers never would or could do), used front and rear cover scans from an Avon first edition, added collected appendices on various topics and taken first steps toward an Anton Szandor LaVey reading list. There is also a small photo gallery.
Please direct any mistakes, extra material, infernal diatribes or love notes to the address in the Colophon.
