Books: Hunter S. Thompson

I’d never read Hunter S. Thompson until being pointed towards his article “The Kentucky Derby is Decadent and Depraved.” After that I hit up his Wiki page and discovered that he wrote for Page 2 on (some archives here). I lost a few hours there and now I want to read his entire catalog of books and articles.

So I guess that my wish list now includes everything on this list:

  • The Rum Diary 
  • Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
  • Kingdom of Fear: Loathsome Secrets of a Star-Crossed Child in the Final Days of the American Century
  • “Fire in the Nuts”
  • Screw-Jack
  • The Gonzo Papers: Gonzo Papers, Vol. 1: The Great Shark Hunt: Strange Tales from a Strange Time 
  • Gonzo Papers, Vol. 2: Generation of Swine: Tales of Shame and Degradation in the ’80s
  • Gonzo Papers, Vol. 3: Songs of the Doomed: More Notes on the Death of the American Dream 
  • Screw-Jack & Other Stories 
  • Gonzo Papers, Vol. 4: Better Than Sex: Confessions of a Political Junkie
  • Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail ’72

  • Fear and Loathing in America: The Brutal Odyssey of an Outlaw Journalist 1968–1976
  • Hey Rube: Blood Sport, the Bush Doctrine, and the Downward Spiral of Dumbness: Modern History from the Sports Desk
