    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.

    Bukowski.net 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.

    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...

    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...

    I'm stumped. What's a Fogel Founder?

    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...

    Loving and Hating Charles Bukowski by Linda King - Available Now

    It would be very interesting if someone on this board that Linda trusted could wade in and edit a revised and expanded edition that would then be presented to a real publisher. I'm really surprised she doesn't have an offer from a real house, even a respectable small press. If you think of the...

    Loving and Hating Charles Bukowski by Linda King - Available Now

    I agree - it's an important voice to be heard from. I'll be buying the book and taking it for what it is.

    Loving and Hating Charles Bukowski by Linda King - Available Now

    I'm going out on a limb here, because I was only able to read the sample pages available on the Amazon website, but the editing and proofing of Linda's book is extremely shoddy if the samples indicate the rest of the content. Typos, misplaced commas, repeated information, grammatical errors -...

    So, what else appeals to Bukowski fans?

    I'm psyched - it will be my next read.

    So, what else appeals to Bukowski fans?

    Willie Vlautin is worth checking out, especially Lean on Pete. Recently caught a documentary on Selby. Much more of a stand up guy than I imagined. Just bought his book, The Demon.

    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

    No - I meant letterpress for the cover and for the bits of prose and poetry.

    Proposed Buk chapbook of paintings

    When I think chapbook, I think of something done on a letterpress in a relatively small edition. I'm a big Bukowski fan, but I don't think a book like this would sell in huge numbers, so something modest that celebrates the best of his paintings would be cool. I'll have to give it some thought -...

    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...
