Ms. Peggy "Nadramia" Gilmore states:

PG> 3673, London WC1N 3XX, UK.

Ms. Gilmore's post doesn't clarify the circumstances of Schreck's 
and Zeena's disassociation from Anton LaVey's current "Church of 
Satan" operation. That their actual position may be represented 
correctly, I here post Zeena's 12/30/90 letter to me on the matter:

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Ministry of Propaganda & Public Enlightenment
30 December 1990/XXVAS

Dear Dr. Aquino:

With the dawning of a new year, I felt this to be an ideal time to 
communicate some thoughts to you that I trust shall bring about a 
new awareness in many regards.

First of all, you should be aware that as of 30 April, 1990 (Anno 
XXV) I officially and ritually ended my position as Church of Satan 
representative-defender and daughter of Anton LaVey. This ritual 
brought all contact between myself and the Church of Satan, 
including my unfather, to a complete cessation. Although I felt it 
my responsibility as a sincere advocate of the unnamable forces we 
experience to attempt to fight off the Judeo-Christian hysteria of 
the '80s, I became too disgusted with the organization and the 
individual I was foolishly standing in for to continue this charade 
in "good" conscience.

While I have no regrets in my battle with the forces of ignorance, 
and my own unswerving dedication to *my* religion has only grown, I 
could no longer defend such an ungrateful and unworthy individual as 
the so-called Black Pope.

I feel it is only just that I give credit where credit is due, and 
acknowledge that you have been quite correct about many aspects of 
the modus operandi of the Church of Satan's fearless leader. 
Essentially, he is a coward and could not possibly deal with the 
hostility that we have had to encounter in publicly defending our 
beliefs. Despite this repellent lack of warrior spirit or pride on 
his part, he was filled, and still is, with petty jealous criticism 
of my efforts. This was easy for him to do from the safe vantage 
point of the comfortable and risk-free easy chair we know he has 
lived in for decades.

Besides my public appearances, I have also made many valuable and 
unprecedented contacts with police and law enforcement officials in 
the interest of providing more enlightened treatment of Satanists 
everywhere. Of course, the mighty "High Priest" succeeded in 
sabotaging these efforts to his own disadvantage, in addition to the 
disadvantage of all practicing magicians. I believe he is, through 
his ostrich-in-the-sand stance, a detriment to any attempt at 
halting the scapegoat fever that has entered all of "our" private 
lives. Indeed, his irresponsible laziness has repeatedly and 
ignorantly endangered my life as well as the lives of many who were 
misguided enough to support him.

The most recent and blatant example of this may be found in the 
publication of the absurd catalogue of lies entitled _Secret Life of 
a Satanist_ by (as told to) Blanche Barton. This fluffy PR release 
masquerading as a book included, with typical irresponsibility, a 
photo of my son without ever seeking his or my permission. Like all 
of the self-serving bullshit printed in this volume, the malignant 
use of an innocent child to buttress a flagging reputation and self-
esteem is a new low point in a career already dotted with depths. 
For your information, despite Barton's claim, Anton LaVey has never 
given "tutelage" of any sort to his grandson. In fact my son was 
shocked and angered at being hypocritically exploited by his 
grandfather's pathetic effort to portray himself as a loving family 

Furthermore, despite the fact that this biography was printed long 
after my resignation, Barton knowingly lied by perpetuating the idea 
that I have anything at all to do with CoS and its founder. If 
Barton chooses to spin other falsehoods about her subject's life, 
that's fine, but she has crossed the line by including my son and 
myself. You and I are both aware of the countless untruths contained 
in this book, but I felt you should be illuminated on points 
relating to myself (at least).

Another fact conveniently not included is the common knowledge that 

as the co-director of the Werewolf Order, I have paved a unique path 
of my own inspired by the Western European magical tradition. These 
very European magical traditions, which I have always maintained as 
my own, are of more personal importance to me than the largely 
Eastern and negative Judaeo-Christian imagery still so boringly 
peddled by the CoS. In the desire to appeal to the masses, Barton's 
book makes it glaringly clear that the real motive of the Church of 
Satan is to attract cash from "economic power brokers"; what other 
reason could justify the sickeningly repetitive flattery she (he) 
extends to Zionism, Bolshevism, and the state of Israel while safely 
negating any Norse or Teutonic mythology?

Of course the reason Barton prefers to present me as loyal daughter 
and #1 fan is to obscure the fact that my real activities in the 
world are no longer connected to her mentor. The Werewolf Order is 
and always has been a sovereign entity. Those participants in our 
magical and public activities are now bound to a state of strict 
neutrality. Far from wishing to continue the pointless bickering and 
in-fighting, I speak for myself and the Werewolf Order in declaring 
that there is no use for these hollow animosities which can, after 
all, be no part of a truly initiated world view. Under the ūgis of 
Radio Werewolf, my music, writings, videos, and performances are 
expressions of my *personal* magical vision. Any other claim 
concerning my activities is purely to feed the parasitic hunger of 
that which you have dubbed "the Kennel".

While we may find some theological differences in our approach, I 
know you are sincere in your beliefs and have continued to publicly 
defend them, for which I congratulate you. Laying aside these 
differences, I'm sure you can comprehend the deeper and more 
intangible aspects of all of this.

My unfather should never have carelessly tampered with the authentic 
forces of darkness that he now idiotically believes are his own 
creation. In fact, many times he has implied that he regrets opening 
the "Pandora's box" of Satanism. I have seen first-hand what his 
insincere and cynical approach to these nameless cthonic powers can 
do to one shaky and uncertain ego.

I was born a Satanist; my unfather was raised in the mundane world 
of humankind where he remains. He unwittingly served as the agent of 
the true daemonic energy needed to sire me as a genuine magical 
child. I have never seen any evidence that he honestly believes in 
the force whom he has for so long exploited as a "good gimmick". 
Nevertheless he did succeed in attracting the ideal sorceress needed 
for my conception. My mother, a natural magician as incarnation of 
Diana the Huntress, was the driving force of the most positive 
aspects of the Church of Satan. As you are aware, her design of many 
of the magical insignias of the Church, her organizational and 
administrative abilities, her uncredited contributions to the 
_Satanic Bible_ and _Rituals_, and her charisma are but some of the 
elements that proved her to be the backbone of what was once a vital 
entity. As duality is a necessary dynamic in any form of progress, 
it is mathematically easy to see that when one portion of the 
duality is repelled, the other collapses into passivity. I am the 
living essence of this particular duality maintained at its peak.

In light of all of the factors herein, I also officially severed my 
given surname and now prefer to be known only as Zeena. As I feel 
naturally aristocratic, I also have no need for the empty titles of 
Magistra or High Priestess that have been bandied about and fought 

Anton LaVey has degraded his own claimed religion, his family, his 
supporters too often and too ignorantly. He created a monster in me, 
for perhaps I am too serious about all this for the likes of the 
High Priest who would prefer movie stars and "expensive" restaurants 
to any meaningful magical experience. In the end the "balance 
factor" he smugly refers to will be his ultimate undoing, for the 
cosmic cards are stacked against him. We shall see where this 
monster leads.

My last word on this tiresome subject relates to the film _Sunset 
Boulevard_. You will recall the aging silent star portrayed by 
Gloria Swanson. Indeed LaVey has shown himself to be the Norma 
Desmond of Satanism, lost in decadent, nostalgic reverie, glaring 
into the camera one last time, announcing, "I'm ready for my close-
up now, Mr. Bougas." Tango music *up*. Fade to black.

I close this in hopes of ending any lingering antagonisms between 
us, and to leave this psychic vampire behind us. By imparting this 
to you, I trust it will be of service to all dedicated travelers of 
the Left-Hand Path. May this letter bring a longstanding, unresolved 
chord to its end with best wishes for the coming new year.

In the Promethean flame,
