Ronald Reagan The Magazine of Poetry. 1968.

John Sladek, Pamela Zoline, and Thomas M. Disch. Ronald Reagan The Magazine of Poetry. London, 1968.

John Sladek, satirist, laughing fatalist, and “the high priest of something else,” and his flatmates published this poetry, protest, and science fiction ’zine at the intersection of the Anglo-American literary avant-gardes, the New York East Village scene and British New Wave. The magazine includes J. G. Ballard’s obscene satire on Ronald Reagan, then serving as governor of California.

Pictorial wrappers by Sladek and Zoline. Provenance: Thomas M. Disch, contributing editor.

No. 38.
