Steve Richmond sale (1 Viewer)

Hey all.

For the few, maybe more, Steve Richmond fans here aboard, I'm offering up a collection of books that I've had for awhile, but have decided to sell.
Hope this is the right place to post this, if not, my apologies!

If interested, just PM me and we'll go from there.
$2 for shipping.

These will be tossed up on Ebay, sometime in the near future.
Just wanted to give you guys first pick.

Usually wrong.
I might be interested in Aphrodite Rising. Have to check my Richmond collection -- not sure if I have it or not. Don't hold it for me...I'm just saying maybe.

Is this the FUCK HATE Earth Rose issue he got busted for?

Bukfan,
Earth Rose is a poetry book of 249 pages of poetry, with a foreword by Bukowski.

Hey, I woke up today!
And there was the sun again!
Shooting in through the shades
and spearing me in the eye!
And the clock! still alive!
and the rug was not on fire!
and the lawn! the trees! the gutter
All there! Once again!
Today!

I see! Then it's not the FUCK HATE issue I was thinking about. Thanks, Black Swan!

It seems there are less people on buknet who appreciate
the poetry of Richmond.

Who published his books and chapbooks, not so many publishers, right?
So it seems he is known because he was a real good friend of Bukowski.
However, Marvin Malone, (a lot of poetry lovers see him as a Poetry
authority), published Richmond over and over again.

And what did Bukowski see in Richmond's poetry? He even called him
the American Rimbaud.

Stood Bukowski alone in his opinion? Or Bukowski just made it up....?

Usually wrong.
I believe Steve Richmond had a solid reputation as a poet aside from his friendship with Bukowski. The friendship was probably more important to Richmond than to those of us who read Richmond. I don't know if he knew it, but Richmond didn't need Bukowski. On some level, he obviously knew he could stand on his own as an artist, but on another, more emotional level, he seemed to feel he needed to have Buk's approval.

I haven't read a lot of Richmond, but what I've read I have enjoyed. I'd love to pick one of these up, but having to move (again) will likely drain my cash. Still, if these are on eBay after I get settled, maybe I'll have to pick 'em up.

I checked and I don't have Aphrodite Rising. Is it still available? You can see why I miss out on so many things. I am slow on the draw most the time.
