"The Great Shark Hunt: Strange Tales from a Strange Time" is a collection of essays and articles written by Hunter S. Thompson, first published in 1979. The book encompasses a wide range of Thompson's writings, including pieces from the 1960s and 1970s that originally appeared in various publications such as Rolling Stone, Playboy, and Scanlan's Monthly.

"The Great Shark Hunt" features Thompson's signature Gonzo journalism style, characterized by immersive, first-person narratives and a blend of fact and fiction. The collection covers a diverse array of topics, including politics, sports, culture, and personal experiences. One of the notable pieces in the collection is "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," which later became a separate book and a significant work in Thompson's bibliography.

Through his sharp wit, irreverent humor, and keen observations, Thompson offers readers a glimpse into the turbulent social and political climate of the 1960s and 1970s America. His writing reflects the counterculture movement, capturing the essence of the era with a mix of cynicism, humor, and unapologetic honesty.

"The Great Shark Hunt" showcases Thompson's ability to dissect and critique American society while providing a unique and often outrageous perspective on the events and personalities of his time. The book remains a seminal work in Gonzo journalism and is highly regarded by fans of Thompson's writing.
