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 1982, Wormwood 87 contains four Bukowski poems:

  • Parked - pg. 105
  • Parts Dept. - pg. 106
  • The Drunk With The Little Legs - pg. 107
  • No Chance In Pomona - pg. 108

Parts Dept. was never published again.

The Drunk With The Little Legs appeared in Open All Night, but the title was changed and it was heavily edited. This is the way Bukowski intended it to read.

This is one of 700 copies, this being hand-numbered #409.

This copy is in in Very Good + condition with a crease to the back cover, rusting to the staples and a pencil note 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.
