*lisp was created mainly by Steve Omohundro https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Omohundro

Digging a bit more I believe you're referring to this varient:


The *Lisp in the book The Connection Machine used a different sytax, there the operators α, β, and · where used to algebraically map and reduce lisp functions over parallel data structures as described in this paper by Hillis and Steele:


Unfortunately it doesn't seem like this language exists anymore.

There were a bunch of Lisp variants for the Connection Machine, but the commercial offering was StarLisp.

Other variants were Connection Machine Lisp and Paralation Lisp.
