Published in 1958, Bukowski’s short story in Quixote 19 marks only his 22nd known appearance in a literary magazine.

Bukowski later said he had stopped writing prose at this stage in his literary career, so interesting to see this classic short story from 1958, titled:

Hell Yes, The Hydrogen Bomb

The story would not be published again for again for 60 years when it appeared in The Mathematics of the Breath and the Way (2018).

Also a great period biography in the Contributors section.

Contributors include Frederick Eckman, Karilyn Adams, Robert Kelly, and Jane Mayhall.

This copy is in Near Fine condition with a price tag remnant that impacts the title, and some very minor light stains.

Overall, a beautiful copy of this uncommon poetry journal edited by Jean Rikhoff out of Devonshire, England.
