Who Killed Hunter S. Thompson: An Inquiry into the Life & Death of the Master of Gonzo by Warren Hinckle


Hi folks,

Just spotted this updated listing on Amazon.com. It carries a release date of June 1st 2017.

From the details in the listing it looks like a very interesting book! If anyone can hook me up with a review copy I would love to hear from you – totallygonzo@gmail.com



An inquiry into the life and death of the master of ‘gonzo’ – Hunter Thompson – with candid memories and appreciations by many of his closest friends and co-conspirators.

Thompson’s compatriots, observe and comment on the journalistic legend’s life and death.

Contains: transcripts of his rants and idiosyncratic phone messages, The Gonzo Master’s Midnight Faxes, The Kentucky Derby is Decadent and Depraved, and a humungous introduction (a book in itself!) by Warren Hinckle III.
