The Return of Lono

February 25th, 2005 · 1 Comment

The artsy publisher Taschen is apparently issuing a new edition of the long-out-of-print Hunter S. Thompson book Curse of Lono. It’s a hefty 300 beans, but it’s a big illustrated hardcover in a limited edition of 1000 copies, each signed by both Thompson and artist Ralph Steadman. I’m a sufficiently hardcore Thompsonite that I sucked it up and ordered one. In light of the good doctor’s recent death, I imagine they’ll go pretty quickly even at that price.

    Hey, just saw a list of the top 10 most sought after books out of print from last year, and I thought you’d be interested to know Lono was number ten. Who topped the list? Number one was John Kerry’s THE NEW SOLDIER followed by Lynne Cheney’s western lesbian saga. At least we have our priorities straight, right?
