"Itaste the ashes of your death" fails because "Itaste" is not in the database. "some notes of doctor Klarstein" fails because it's "Dr.", not "doctor".

The best way to search is on a unique (or somewhat unique) part of the title - "Klarstein," or "ashes." That will always match what you're looking for, and have the added benefit of sometimes popping up titles you may have never heard of.

Officials say drugs may have played a part
I re-read Bukowski's correspondence with E.V. Griffith from 1958 - 1960 this morning. I never realized Bukowski helped fund "Flower, Fist and Bestial Wail."

This makes sense in a lot of ways. And Griffith did try to make the book "legit" in a way by not filling the book with all new poems. From what I could understand, Griffith only wanted poems that had already been published. That seems to be one of the reasons it took so long to come out.

Does anyone know if Bukowski helped fund any of the other early chaps?

He sent money to the Webbs Those weren't chapbooks, I know, but I seem to recall that he did send money to help in the production of other books, but I don't remember any specifics at the moment.
