Happy Birthday, Hunter S. Thompson

It’s Hunter S. Thompson’s birthday today, and we’re celebrating by offering a 50 percent discount on The Gonzo Way: A Celebration of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson on orders placed through our website. Just use discount code GONZO at checkout to receive your discount.

I’ll be celebrating in my own quiet way this evening by reading Transmetropolitan (I like my Hunter S. Thompson tributes with a heavy dose of cyberpunk), sipping on a glass of Zaya Gran Reserva on the rocks, and watching my chicken peck at an effigy of Richard Nixon. You know, just normal stuff.

Anita Thompson also has a lovely entry on Hunter’s birthday and the goings-on at Owl Farm on her blog.

Cheers, Hunter, wherever you are.

The Gonzo Way!

622-8Check out this terrific audio download of the lessons outlined in Anita Thompson’s The Gonzo Way. It was created by Judd Marcello, an admitted, “massive fan of  Hunter S. Thompson”. He’s also the guy who made the terrific Gonzo Way video just after Anita’s book came out.

Put it on your Ipod, listen to it in your car and it’ll surely inspire you to start living the Gonzo Way!

And the winner is…

The Gonzo Way

The Gonzo Way

We were excited to receive notice yesterday that The Gonzo Way: A Celebration of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson has been announced as the grand prize winner of the 2008 London Book Festival.
Anita Thompson (Hunter’s wife) wrote The Gonzo Way to share 7 lessons about life which she learned from Hunter. She also gives an inside perspective on the man so many admire. The book has been a great success for us, and this latest award is very deserving.
Congratulations, Anita!
Another of our top titles, A Solitary War: A Diplomat’s Chronicle of the Iraq War and its Lessons by Heraldo Muñoz (Ambassador of Chile to the United Nations) was also awarded an honorable mention.
