Why do you care about LaVey's biographical details? It really is irrelevent. LaVey compiled The Satanic Bible and created modern Satanism whether or not he lied about his life details or graduated from college or not. I really don't see why you care about such irrelevent details; it's like dismissing Einstein's maths theorems because he had scruffy hair.
My introduction to "Might is Right" is at http://www.dpjs.co.uk/the_book_of_satan.html
With Atlas Shrugged, many Rand enthusiasts aren't sure that it really matches at all. One expert (who was very criticial of Satanism) concluded that there is very little crossed philosophy between the two.
And thirdly, it's probably worth reading http://www.dpjs.co.uk/counter/fraud.html
which is all about questions on whether Anton LaVey was a fraud, etc.
