    Editor at Ecco?

    Hi everyone - it's been a while since I posted. I've recently been rereading a lot of Bukowski and an idea for an anthology zeroed in on a key period of his life occurred to me. Does anyone on the forum have an email for the editor at Ecco Press most connected with Bukowski?

    Paintings/Drawings that show Bukowski (not BY Bukowski)

    This is a drawing I did of Bukowski as part of a book project of drawings of artists and writers.
  3. Mark Rogers facelift

    Much prefer the new design. I never did care for the pissed in the pants looking photo - as a few people mentioned, it reinforced the skid row poet image. Everyone on this site knows there was so much more to Bukowski than that reduction.

    Buk poem endorses scotch:

    Wasn't aware this was one of the Martinized poems. There's now no enjoying or supporting this endeavor.

    Buk poem endorses scotch:

    My post was redirected and I see there's already been a discussion about this. Like I thought, I'm in the minority on this one. For me, maybe its the pleasure seeing his words out there in the marketplace and someone hearing them and being startled by Buk's direct voice.

    Buk poem endorses scotch:

    I was prepared to hate this ad for Dewars, but I found it effective and the guy reading the poem did a great job. It would have been nice if they mentioned the poem was by Bukowski. I have a feeling there may be some different opinions on the forum...

    My novel BASEMENT is out on Amazon

    Glad I made you laugh. I didn't have an e-reader myself until I needed one to edit this book. Things are changing fast. Writers have more power than ever in getting published - the big challenge is getting noticed. One cool thing about the e-reader is the novella is coming back. There's less...

    My novel BASEMENT is out on Amazon

    I made the plunge and published a novel of mine - BASEMENT - as an e-book: The Jones’ have a prisoner in their basement. So do the Smiths. Times are tough. When a working class town in the northeast gets their fill of foreclosures and seizures, they turn to an experimental program that promises...

    Bukowski, 93, today!

    Sounds like a complete misfire.

    Loving and Hating Charles Bukowski by Linda King - Available Now

    I agree that it needs more than an edit and the addition of the letters would make it an important book, instead of a marginal one. Linda Lee is sitting comfortably on a mountain of Buk's writings. The decent thing to for her to do is let to Linda King have ownership of the letters that were...
