The Black Flame


The Black Flame is a magazine published by the Church of Satan. It was begun in 1989, when the other Church of Satan magazine, The Cloven Hoof, went on hiatus. Originally, The Black Flame was a quarterly newsletter, but it then evolved into a bi-annual publication.

In recent years, publication of The Black Flame seems to have been halted, with issue #16 (the "Music and Art Interview Issue") the most-recently published. An announcement has been made that further issues will be released as journals, with extensive essays and articles, as opposed to interviews. There is currently no set release date for issue #17, but rather a statement from the Church of Satan that "it will be released when we have enough material to justify publication."

Famous quotes containing the words flame and/or black:

    one pale woman all alone,
    The daylight kissing her wan hair,
    Loitered beneath the gas lamps’ flare,
    With lips of flame and heart of stone.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    How strange a vehicle it is, coming down unchanged from times of old romance, and so characteristically black, the way no other thing is black except a coffin—a vehicle evoking lawless adventures in the plashing stillness of night, and still more strongly evoking death itself, the bier, the dark obsequies, the last silent journey!
    Thomas Mann (1875–1955)
