So earlier this year I was asked by Simon and Schuster to write the introduction to the 40th anniversary edition of Fear and Loathing: On the Campaign Trail '72. Needless to say, this has been one of the coolest things to happen in my career. The book should be out soon, and I hope people like the new edition (the new black cover design looks great); in the meantime, I did a Q&A with the Village Voice about the book, about Hunter, and about what Hunter might have thought about the current presidential race.

See here for the interview.
