    Here's one more with 6 poems. It's possible, that 3 of them are uncollected or were retitled. I can't check that by myself because I don't own any pdf versions of the BSP books. At least I can't find them in the database. These are "Upon the landslide victory of Richard Nixon", "The Adding...

    Bukowski Pictures

    Bukowski Sober Years

    Not that this is very important, but just for fun, I guess there was at least one occasion and that was Bukowski's wedding. In the story in German Penthouse (April 1986), Bukowski wrote that they drove home with their best friends after the wedding and had some more drinks. According to the...

    The senseless, tragic rape of Charles Bukowski’s ghost by John Martin’s Black Sparrow Press

    "Die meisten, die auf dem Gebiet geforscht haben, brauchten immer wieder mal eine Pause und psychatrische Behandlungen um den Schock zu verkraften!" That statement isn't an exaggeration at all. With every new example of these forgeries, incredible anger rises in me. It really hurts!

    New Bukowski website

    Just when I had given up all hope to ever see this treasure. Incredible! Thanks! I noticed some (secondary) dead links. Is it appropriate to point them out and also discuss some content or is it meant to remain as a (brilliant) remembrance?

    Visiting L.A. Buk and non-Buk suggestions?

    Good old memories. Back in 1998, when there was no google maps and such information were hard to find, I visited Baroque Book Store and asked Red Stodolsky for directions to Bukowski’s grave. He draw me some kind of map which worked out very well. When I arrived at Green Hills Memorial Park, I...

    Because I just retrieved some old souveniers, I want to share my memories of Red. I visited Baroque Book Store in spring 1998. Obviously I was a young tourist without much money to spend, but Red treated me really well. I just bought the BSP„Bukowski Reads His Poetry“ CD and the „5 Postcards“...

    The Way It Works (Chapbook, Racetrack Press 1994)

    I'm a little late, but to complete this: It's the same version with year of origin in 1985 that also appears in the chapbook. The poem was released by BSP one year later (You Get So Alone At Times That It Just Makes Sense - pg. 126 – 1986) and both versions vary slightly in just one word (“he...
