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.

Wormwood 38 contains 2 Bukowski poems:

Down Like Stairways, Up Like Smoke - pg. 41
Another Academy - pg. 42

Down Like Stairways, Up Like Smoke would never be published again.

Another Academy was one of Bukowski’s most famous poems, appearing in multiple books, recordings, magazines, and as a broadside.

This is one of 700 copies printed, this being hand-numbered #275.

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.
