I think they mean Verthaine's Book of Eris.

http://poee.co.uk/site/component/option,com_rsfiles/task,files.display/path,...Ancient_Erisian_Texts...bookoferis.pdf/Itemid,28/ should get you to where you want to be.

I'll update the links page.

Oddly enough, it says Book of Eris was added there Jan 01,1970, decades before it was even written.  How'd they do that?

Verthaine probably messed up the target date while travelling between multiverses.  It happens.

Jan 1, 1970 is the start of the UNIX time epoch.

it's the date/time you get when a UNIX timestamp (measured as seconds since midnight Jan 1 1970) is accidentally set to zero.

so probably a computer glitch somewhere.

Of these two explanations, one is obviously bogus.  (Yes, I know you can see it coming).

Computer glitch?  HA!  Obviously an attempt to cover up St. Verthaine the Goth's Multiversal Transport System!

omg shut up
The Jerk On Bike rolled his eyes and tossed the waffle back over his shoulder--before it struck the ground, a stout, disconcertingly monkey-like dog sprang into the air and snatched it, and began to masticate it--literally--for the sound it made was like a homonculus squatting on the floor muttering "masticate masticate masticate".

Because that version of our download module was broken. Now it's slightly less broken, but still broken.

I just posted "Book of Eris", "Discordia, A Little Game about a Lot of Chaos", "Metaclysmia Discordia", and "Summa Discordia" to Scribd.  Also found an interesting book called "Condensed Chaos".  Haven't read it yet, but it's mostly about Chaos Magick.

The author of Condensed Chaos, Phil Hine, is a Discordian... well, as much as any Chaote "is" anything. So Condensed Chaos is probably a Discordian work, but it has less to do with Discordia than it does with Chaos Magic.

His book "Prime Chaos" has two appendicies about neophilic irreligions, entitled Liber Nice and Liber Nasty. Liber Nice is about Discordia, and Liber Nasty is about Cthulhu cults. Hine gives a pretty good introduction to both groups, albeit from a rather occultish point of view.

Got bored so I copied a few more books from POEE to Scribd:  "Aeternus Ille Discordia", "Omiterre Libellus", "Principia Entropius", and "Wise Book of Baloney".

That is on Scribd too.  I'll have a look at it. Thanks.

I've still yet to have anyone decode the Important Message on page 16 of the Wise Book of Baloney.

Well that might be because a smart discordian knows better than to waste their time with that, a dumb discordian wouldnt be able to do it, a lazy discordian would just skip it and a Really Real Discordian For Realness has been encoding the answer in every 23rd character of their posts for years now AND YOU STILL HAVENT NOTICED :argh!:

Shit.  True.

I was bored so I started up a bit torrent of a zip file that contains about a dozen Discordian books.  Put it up on both Pirate Bay and Mininova. Here's a link if anyone else wants to help seed: 

http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/4328787/Discordian_Literature

(Yes, this is a completely legal torrent, so no whining!)
