ImageTo commemorate the 20th anniversary of Charles Bukowski’s passing, we have raffled off a copy of the author’s 1978 novel Women, along with a lucky 7 of diamonds Pabst beer cap found outside Buk’s favorite liquor store — the Pink Elephant at Western and Franklin in Los Angeles. 

Congratulations to our winner:

Harry Calhoun (Raleigh, North Carolina)

NOTE: Harry Calhoun is a poet and author who contributed his writing to the Silver Birch Press Bukowski Anthology. Learn more about Harry and his recent poetry chapbooks at

BACK STORY: I found the lucky Buk beer cap on Saturday, July 13, 2013, when I hopped onboard the Esotouric bus tour entitled, Haunts of a Dirty Old Man: Charles Bukowski’s Los Angeles.” The story of this fun and informative tour appears in the Silver Birch Press Bukowski Anthology.
