Recent Reviews for Burton H. Wolfe

The Devil's Avenger (Book) - 12/30/2014 4:07:04 PM
The Devil's Avenger is a must read. It takes you through Anton LaVey's entire life, trials and tribulations. I was extremely fascinated with the details about Satanism that only a select few, including Burton Wolfe would know. It opened my eyes up even further to the religious discrimination that exists in this country which no one ever speaks of. If more than a handful of folks read about this topic, it would seem less "threatening" to them. I plan on re-reading it for a 3rd time soon!

Lucifer's Dictionary of the American Language (Book) - 8/3/2006 2:37:24 AM
Interesting book. Lucifer's Dictionary of the American Language is filled with expressions, chronicled details, and pleasantly puzzling, not always main stream terminology. Wolfe points out that many gender distinct words have come to mean either gender, or no gender at all. Santa, aks, contempt and family newspaper are clarified with explicitness. The reader may grin first while observing that the word liar, ‘an individual who has made the appropriate choice between either concealing the truth or being fired, disbarred, divorced, denied credit, prosecuted, imprisoned, or executed for admitting it,’ and then grasp that this is frequently the case in today’s culture. A fascinating meaning for ‘overworked’ is supplied… and as my mom used to say, the definition supposing is often ‘more truth than poetry.’

Lucifer's Dictionary of the American Language (Book) - 7/10/2006 10:37:49 AM
These are delightful definitions. You join distinguished company, including Daniel Webster and H.L. Mencken. - Peter Nye, Editor, Public Citizen Magazine. More relevant, more clever, and more important than Ambrose Bierce's "Devil's Dictionary". - Elizabeth Pomada, co-author of "Painted Ladies." Delightful and hilarious...a great and fun book. - Jack Heffron, Senior Editor, Story Press. Sharp, acute have much talent. - Shirley A. Buscher, Lincoln-Herndon Press. Both funny and acurate. - Matthew Trokenheim, Thunder's Mouth Press.
