Hunter S. Thompson (1 Viewer)

Black Swan

Abord the Yorikke!
I had watched Fear and Loathing several times, Gonzo, Breakfast with Hunter Thompson and finally bought my first Thompson book, although I had read excerpts here and there, and was quite amazed by his style and the person.
I paid 48. for a first ed. fourth printing of the hard cover version. Is that a fair price? The dust jacket is not great but there. The book itself is in good condition except but a small bumped corner. I am not sure why I did'nt buy a real cheap copy, but now it is done. I thought that I had bought a first ed. first printing, but not so, if it matters. The seller was not clear about the printing. I have no expertise in the matter. Did I pay too much?

Thanks, James. I think my copy is pretty clean. It has the black top edge. It is not a book club edition. I still don't know if I paid too much, but with that information, I can look it up.

I didn't get an email either.

I think maybe they are trying to entice registered users that haven't bought anything/much yet?
but I bought the Pogues and Thompson sets, so I bought just a few weeks ago...

Maybe it was just a random mailing... Maybe I'm not really all that special.



And in the end...
Hunter is the only person in that room with any integrity, where are the audience off to next? a lynching perhaps, or how about seeing a man drag his wife around the studio by her hair,before beating her to a pulp.
PS - He also looks gorgeous!

When I clicked that link the ghost of HST crashed not only the Salon page but this forum page too. It was very weird.

I just sprinkled some bourbon around the desk here and they came back up.
