“The Great Shark Hunt: Strange Tales From a Strange Time” The Gonzo papers Volume 1. This is the first in a series of 4 Gonzo Papers Volumes. It covers Thompson’s essays / articles from 1956 to 1970 inclusive. There is more than enough in this book to keep everyone happy. If I was asked to recommend a HST book to a “non fan” it would be this one.
