HST, Dan-Browning Amazon.com

In a coup d’etat fueled by nostalgia, Hunter S. Thompsons’ books have taken over Amazon.com’s bestseller list. Current sales ranks, as of 1:31 pm:

#15 Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
#38 Hey Rube
#39 Hell’s Angels
#42 Fear and Loathing: On the Campaign Trail
#66 Kingdom of Fear
#87 Fear and Loathing in America
#111The Rum Diary: A Novel
#123 The Great Shark Hunt

Unsurprisingly, the Criterion Collection DVD of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas also ranks high on Amazon.com’s DVD bestseller list (#35). Less popular, however, are HST’s Gonzo Papers, with Volumes two and three coming in at #2,185 and #7,863, respectively.
