    Article: Don't blame Bukowski for bad poetry by Tony O'Neill in The Guardian

    Well, a more positive article (compared to the last one I posted). Quote: "Unfortunately, the posthumous poetry collections have been patchy at best. In an indisputable act of necrophilia, Ecco has been exploiting the dead...

    "About My Very Tortured Friend, Peter"

    After returning to this site after a long absence, and learning that John Martin mucked with Buk's writing (in many cases, criminally), my soul collapsed upon itself (damnit, I'm not overexaggerating). This one isn't too bad, I guess. It's hard to stomach that JM's tendrils have reached to my...

    How do you organize your Buk shelf?

    Thought I'd throw this out there. I enjoy seeing how people organize/display their collections, whatever they might be. For example, besides Buk, I collect hardbop jazz CDs (1955-1965 era). These can be organized by year, artist, label (or within the labels by artist or catalog number, etc.)...

    Longtime Buk fan from Philly area

    This is the sort of post I was going to make back in 2006, but never got around to, off the cuff... First exposure to Bukowski was back in Fall 1987 at Temple University, Philly, when one of my English major buddies said I should check out this writer, Bukowski, being profiled in the...
