Background

For more than thirty years, throughout his writing career, Richard Brautigan published his writings in more than 170 different publications. These range from student publications to mass media magazines, and from small audience mimeographed poetry journals to some of the most respected outlets for important literary works. Several examples of Brautigan's writing were published as speciality items intended for fans or collectors. Many of these contributions were included in Brautigan's novels and poetry and story collections.

The buttons in each index show a unique publication identifier followed by a publication name. The ID consists of a letter (B for Specialty Item, C for first publication Brautigan contribution, D for only reprints of Brautigan's work) and a number. In addition to clicking on a button, a specific publication can be requested by loading this page into your browser with its ID as a hash tag.
