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 1976, Wormwood 64 contains three Bukowski poems:

Free - pg. 142
Utah - pg. 143
Let's Be Original - pg. 144

Utah and Let's Be Original have yet to be published again.

Free appeared in The People Look Like Flowers At Last, but the title was changed and it was heavily edited. This is the way Bukowski intended it to be read.

This is one of 700 copies, but for some reason is not numbered.

This copy is in Near Fine condition with a pen mark on the front cover and some slight sunning to the spine.

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.
