Paperback originals, each 192pp. Ed. Mel Howard. Designed by Aldo Rostagno. Illustrated with photographs and graphics throughout. Countdown was one of three paperback magazines to appear in the late '60s (along with US [item #248] and Defiance), each edited and designed in the manner of an underground newspaper but with the intention of reaching a mass audience. Countdown planned to publish five times yearly, but, as with the other paperback magazines, only three issues appeared.

Contributors include John Wilcock and Thomas King Forcade (on the underground press); Jerry Rubin; Eldridge Cleaver (from The Black Panther); Gary Snyder ("Smokey The Bear Sutra"); Jud Yalkut; Diane di Prima; John Sinclair (22pp. on The MC-5, with several photos); Allen Ginsberg; Hugh Romney and the Hog Farmers; Timothy Leary ("Violence is Killing by Machines at a Distance"); Robert Crumb; S. Clay Wilson; Ron Cobb; DA Latimer; George Metesky (from "Fuck the System Manual"); Julius Lester; Herbert Marcuse; Uta West ("Women as Objects, Toys and Commodities"); Jane Alpert; and others.
