Charles Bukowski always felt Wormwood Review was the best small magazine out there and was grateful that they were one of the first to recognize his work. In return, Bukowski continued to contribute to the magazine right up until his death in 1994.:

 Published in 1991, Wormwood 124 contains three Bukowski poems:

The Train Station - pg. 139
Ginsberg? - pg. 141
They Need What They Need - pg. 142

The Train Station has yet to be published again.

 They Need What They Need appeared in The Night Torn Mad With Footsteps, but the name was changed and it was heavily edited.

 This is one of 700 copies, this being hand-numbered #174.

 This copy is in in Near Fine condition with a little discoloration from the purple ink.

Wormwood Review was published by the legendary Marvin Malone (1930-1996). Malone was a pharmacologist, scientific researcher, educator, artist, poetry collector, and editor. Upon arrival to Storrs, Connecticut in 1960, Malone discovered the second issue of Wormwood Review and soon took over the publication as the sole editor, publisher, and designer (alias A. Sypher), producing quarterly issues until his death in 1996.

Wormwood Review ran for 144 issues (1959-1997). Christa Malone, Marvin's daughter, co-edited issue 144 after Marvin's death, and released issue 145/146 as a special tribute issue to Marvin in 1999.
