I have several periodicals with Bukowski appearances (plus a copy of the FBI file) that I'm going to list on eBay, but thought I'd try here first. Prices do not include shipping (will be at cost based on your location) and prices are relatively flexible. I can post photos, if folks are interested... Thanks for looking
