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 1980, Wormwood 78 contains two Bukowski poems:

Hotel Felix - pg. 83
Yes - pg. 84

Hotel Felix has yet to be collected in any Bukowski books.

Yes would appear in Dangling in the Tournefortia in 1981.

This is one of 700 copies, this being hand-numbered 312.

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.

This copy is in in Near Fine condition with some light sunning to the covers and spine.
