Some of the most hilariously funny books ever written were the product of the fertile, twisted mind of the late Dr. Hunter S. Thompson, who chronicled much of the craziness of life in the 1960's and 1970's, in his first-person "Gonzo" style of reportage/fiction/opinionated-madness. Sadly, in his later years, Thompson's alcohol-soaked and drug-ravaged brain finally gave out, slowing his output of new material to a trickle, until he finally took the "Hemingway Option" for leaving the planet (a shotgun in the face), on February 20, 2005.
We mourn his passing, especially since, following Dr. Thompson's lamentable demise (and even during his unproductive later years), no other notable writers of humor in the English language have stepped up to take his place, although P.J. O'Rourke authored a few reasonably funny books in the 1990's (such as "Give War a Chance") and "Parliament of Whores").
Now, into that humorless void has stepped the estimable Dr. Michael "Coyote"
Snopes, the self-styled "one-man ethnic group," who has authored two pre-millennial
"Gonzo" treatises, "The Gonzo Chronicles" and "Fear & Loathing in Hawaii -- The
Shameless Rip-Off," documenting in outrageous, cantankerous prose the last two
decades of the badly twisted 20th century in our allegedly civilized world. To
