    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?

    Are You Cute? A Visit with Allen Ginsberg

    Free until midnight 4/26: I've been publishing some ebooks lately - the most recent is Are You Cute? A Visit with Allen Ginsberg, by my late friend John Langsdorf. John was a prolific and talented writer who died in 1996 from a heroin overdose. His afflictions – agoraphobia, drug addiction and...

    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...

    Pissing On My Pistols

    I recently started a wordpress blog called "Pissing On My Pistols." Lots of it will be about an attempted career as a Hollywood screenwriter (still painfully in progress) and the march towards having my first novel published. If you care to take a look, click...

    Proposed Buk chapbook of paintings

    Maybe you guys can give me some advice. Ever since I saw the selection of Buk's art on this site, I've been thinking of putting together a chapbook of his paintings accompanied by lines of his prose or poetry. I'm not sure how I'd go about getting the rights to the art - I imagine this forum...

    Bukowski heading the list

    I just saw this linked on the Huffington Post - nice pic and a good Buk quote. At least it just didn't reduce him to being a drunk.

    Excerpt from The Gut Wringing machine video

    A few weeks back I wrote that I would get my ultra-crude Buk videos digitized. Back in the 80s I made videos of several Buk stories using a rented video camera and editing them on two VCRs. It's been a real headache getting them transferred. I did manage to get The Gut Wringing Machine onto...

    Obit I wrote for Buk

    When Bukowski died, I wrote an obit for him in Street News. I love the Sam Cherry photo John Martin let me use - to me, this is the image of Bukowski I carry around with me. Martin also gave me a quote for the obit, about how Buk felt like he'd achieved all he wanted to achieve - that he died...

    Count me in

    I made my first post today after discovering this site last week. I've been a fan of Bukowski's since the 70s. I'm a writer myself (that's how I've supported myself the last 15 years). Most of it's trade magazine work, but I have unpublished novels and unproduced screenplays that may someday see...

    Buk RIP Portrait by Sandlin

    This is my first post - great site. Back in the early 90s I was the feature editor for NYC Street News, a paper sold by crackheads, the deranged and the homeless. I was a big fan of Bukowski since coming across the Rolling Stone article back in the 70s - especially the poem about the...
