List Rules
Vote up your favorite HST works; downvote any disappointments

Hunter S. Thompson was incredibly prolific in a number of ways. He invented a completely new type of journalism, worked with and befriended some of the worlds best and brightest, all while on enough drugs to take down a small militia. There are many articles and books by Hunter S. Thompson, many of which have been made into films, and this list attempts to rank the many celebrated works of the founder of Gonzo Journalism himself.

These the best articles, books, and even the Hollywood movie adaptations based on Thompson's great body of work. Influencing American literature and journalism like few others have, Hunter S. Thompson inspired a generation with hard work, drugs, a typewriter, and a fax machine. He was the pinnacle of the American dream. 

Upvote the Hunter S. Thompson Gonzo works you think are the greatest from this remarkable author. Whether you love Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (the book OR the movie), The Rum Diary (maybe just the book in that case), or one of his excellent collections of articles from his days at Rolling Stone, there's no denying Thompson's mark on American fiction and social commentary. And if you like these works of his, you'll definitely find Hunter S. Thompson's fax to Keith Richards interesting.
