According to the Satanic Church website, a 1967 LP had "excerpts from
the as-yet-unpublished The Satanic Bible..."  The "bible" itself was
published in 1969. (

Works copyrighted in the 1960s are covered by copyright law for the
first 28 years, and now are automatically protected for another 67
years. (See "When U.S. Works Pass Into the Public Domain," University
of North Carolina: )

Therefore, the "bible" is protected under copyright law and is not in
the public domain. No one may reprint it without permission from the
copyright holder or his executive(s).
