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 1983, Wormwood 92 contains three Bukowski poems:

Quits - pg. 155
The Big Benefit Reading - pg. 156
Sick - pg. 158

Quits and The Big Benefit Reading were never published again.

This is one of 700 copies, this being hand-numbered #404.

This copy is in Near Fine condition with a bit of sunning to the spine and a pencil mark on the front cover.

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.
