At long last, the collective bibliography for the site only that I've been promising for over a year (w/thanks to Mr. Benson for getting my butt in gear). It's a little rough, but will do for now. A more complete bib can be found in E. Jean Carroll's Hunter or the one in the back of Shark Hunt. Everything you read on this site has its basis in print; nothing is ever made up. Asterisked items indicate that it was used in one of the three main essays I wrote for a high school project. Most of these items I also own, and are not for sale. Only items for sale are. You can check Root Out Ralph for a Steadman-only bibliography.



Listed are the editions I have used and owned; there are minor differences between paperback and hardcover editions, as noted in the individual book pages.

*Carroll, E. Jean, Hunter, Dutton, New York, 1993.

Klinkowitz, Jerome, The Life of Fiction, 1977

McKeen, William, Hunter S. Thompson , G.K. Hall, Boston, 1991.

Perry, Paul, Fear and Loathing: The Strange and Terrible Saga of Hunter S. Thompson, Thunder's Mouth Press, New York, 1993.

Steadman, Ralph, Gonzo: The Art, Harcourt Brace, 1998

Whitmer, Peter O., When the Going Gets Weird , Hyperion, New York, 1993.

NOTE: Because the last two biographies were so new, they were listed in the bibliography of Hunter by their working titles, Fear and Loathing and When the Weird Turn Pro respectively.

I'm quite partial to Hunter ; I've read Paul Perry's bio, and didn't think a whole lot of it. Except for McKeen's book, the other three bios have quite a lot of photos, but Hunter takes the cake. Plus, it's pretty funny (IMHO! Let's face it - no guy could write about what E. Jean did without sounding a bit queer!!)
