HST for Beginners

Marty, over at the fantastic HSTbooks has a new website.

You may well remember the HST for Beginners series that he started last year. Some of the world’s best and brightest Hunter S. Thompson scholars were invited to give their views on the man and his legendary work.

The contributors included Wayne Ewing, William McKeen, Simone Corday, Peter Knox, Peter Richardson, Noel Davila, Marty Beckerman and myself.

We first discussed the separation of Hunter and Duke. That is to say, we each wrote about how the real Hunter differed from the persona that we all know through his work.

Secondly, we talked about Gonzo and what it meant. Most importantly, we all touched upon whether it should or shouldn’t be emulated.

The series now has its own website, which is in the early stages of development. Please take a look at http://www.hstforbeginners.com/
