Item Description
The Black Flame Magazine – Issue #16
International Forum of the Church of Satan
The Black Flame, the International Forum of the Church of Satan, began in 1989. It was first a quarterly newsletter, but evolved into a bi-annual magazine format (each issue being a “double issue,” containing what had been two quarters). It quickly became the world’s most widely-distributed Satanic periodical, and has been available on newsstands and by subscription. It is renowned for its review section, “Odditorium,” which features the most comprehensive listing of Satanic items to be found anywhere. Issue #16 is 64 pages long with a glossy cover with photographs and illustrations throughout. The magazine measures 8.5 x 11 inches and was published in 2005 by Hell’s Kitchen Productions Inc. and contains the following as listed in the table of contents:
