He killed like a champion

Hunter S. Thompson on the Kailua Pier from the book The Curse of Lono. Click on the photo for a much larger view, it’s easy to spot Kona landmarks. The book is going fast at the used book stores online, with only one printing it’s probably one of HST’s most collectible book. I borrowed a copy from the Public Library where quite a few copies have been stolen but they have a number of copies available for borrowing, I got mine in a few days.

Lots of great Ralph Steadman illustrations, Thompson mentions a “Mr. Ackerman” involved in his adventures. Now which Ackerman is this? Hmmmmm.
