Hunter S. Thompson is one of my favorite American writers. If you haven’t read him, or only know him from the Gilliam film, please, read some of his works. He is more than an internet meme. Up there with Vonnegut, Baldwin, and Twain.
Printed collections Toddspeed and Propaganda are coming soon. In the meantime, there is always Straight from the Pit of Hell to tide you over.
