LUCIFER’S LEXICON: EXPANDED & REVISED by L.A. Rollins; Introduction by MRDA (Nine-Banded Books | Underworld Amusements) $15 -Inspired by Ambrose Bierce’s The Devil’s Dictionary, L.A. Rollins first unsheathed his lexicographer’s lance in the pages of marginal political periodicals during the mid-1980s. At a time when objectivist orthodoxy and Cold War political theater dominated libertarian discourse, Rollins’ distinctive brand of irreverent irony stood out. He skewered shibboleths and dethroned dogmas from all quarters, and his trenchant jeu de mots made a lasting impression in the minds of many readers. In 1987, Loompanics Unlimited released the first edition of Lucifer’s Lexicon, a freewheeling compilation of Rollins’ satirical definitions – including content deemed too inflammatory for less adventurous publishers. Though the book would become a cult classic, Rollins’ contrarian take on certain closely guarded historical and religious taboos chafed the sensibilities of some gatekeepers. Following its release, Rollins – who had previously courted controversy for his incisive critique of natural rights theory – was marked a pariah. The present edition is the first in a series of portable paperbacks being published by Nine-Banded Books and Underworld Amusements to chronicle the work of L.A. Rollins. With slight revision, it incorporates the “canonical” Loompanics text, now extensively supplemented to include never-before-published material that Rollins produced until his death in 2015. It is presented with a new introduction by Attack the System editor, MRDA, and a publisher’s preface. Laced with caustic wit, nimble wordplay, and surefooted erudition, Lucifer’s Lexicon stands as a testament to L.A. Rollins’ enduring stature as an ingenious underground satirist and equal-opportunity iconoclast. #LucifersLexicon #LARollins #Quimbys #QuimbysBookstore #QuimbysBookstoreChicago #NineBandedBooks #Nine-BandedBooks #9BandedBooks #UnderworldAmusements #Loompanics
