The limited edition can be bought
Supposedly there are some other works to be run out. I came upon Rum Diary fairly late on, don't know when it was originally published. Written some time in the late fifties early sixties mebbe?
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is a favorite of many. Lot's of the old Rolling Stone articles were quite, quite good as well. Don't know if they are put up as a collection anywhere.
One of the later bits was a Fear and Loathing in Elko, (I believe that was the title) and it involved drugs, high speed automobile manuevers and Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
If you wanna watch "Where The Buffalo Roam" for free, here's the URL:
I have also wondered if Hunter and Bukowski ever exchanged dialog or had an opinion on each other, one way or another?
Bill McKeen, author of Outlaw Journalist: The Life And Times of Hunter S. Thompson (along with many HST articles, interviews, and I think another bio some time ago) is not aware of any contact between them.
He is looking into it for me, and I will post anything he finds/passes on. Virtually everything HST discussed in this thread and a shitload more is in aforementioned tome. Outlaw is worth the price of admission.
I guess if one reads more than one biography, redundancy is the norm (or should be). Going from A to Z in someone's life means attempting to cover all ground. If that material would have been left out, you may have considered it incomplete?
What I found fascinating were the facts about HST's life that I had never known - and there was a boatload of discovery -- for me.
Maybe I'll float back to it someday. We'll see. Certainly there is very little one can do to make one biography different from another (generally), but...
i'm not sure if this has been mentioned before, but check out "Hunter" by E Jean Carroll for and interesting, different bio. i enjoyed it very much...
