Scanlan's Monthly


Scanlan's Monthly

"Scanlan's Monthly" was a short-lived monthly publication, which ran from March 1970 to January 1971. Edited by Warren Hinckle III and Sidney Zion, it featured politically controversial muckraking and was ultimately subject to an investigation by the FBI during the Nixon administration. It was boycotted by publishing technicians as "un-American" by 1971.

"Scanlan's" is best-remembered for featuring several articles by Hunter S. Thompson, and especially for what is considered the first instance of gonzo journalism, Thompson's "The Kentucky Derby is Decadent and Depraved". Thompson's articles from this period are collected with others in "The Great Shark Hunt".
