    Any fans out there,

    I read Fear & Loathing in Las Vagas & that was awesome, I've just read his "Rum Diaries" & that was pretty good as well, I might read The Great Shark hunt next, that looks interesting !!!!

    He hung out with the 'Hells Angels' to write his 'Fear& Loathing...' book.
    But I wonder why 'The Great Gonzo' shot himself?.

    ^Yea, they already have Johnny Depp playing Paul Kemp. Del Toro was going to co-star and direct, but I think he's left the project completly now.

    It's set for release in 2008.

    I thought Kingdom of Fear was awful. Literary masturbation. Not even the GOOD kind.

    it doesnt matter that kingdom of fear isnt an actual story, its a great book and tells a lot about thompson. I love the style of his writing, hes one of the only authors i've read where i actually laugh out loud while reading
