Hunter S. Thompson

Here's where the break between Fiction and Non-Fiction titles gets tricky. As one of Hughesy's favourite authors, you'd be inclined to sit most of Thompson's gonzo journalism under the Non-Fiction label, but he did write some fiction (The Rum Diary) and this page gives me a point to link to the various works that will eventually appear in the Non-Fiction pages, sorted by title rather than author.

That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.
