About the Author

Warren James Hinckle III was an American political journalist based in San Francisco. Hinckle is remembered for his tenure as editor of Ramparts magazine, turning a sleepy publication aimed at a liberal Roman Catholic audience into a major galvanizing force of American radicalism during the Vietnam War era of the late 1960s and early 1970s. He shared an office with Hunter Thompson throughout the 70's and 80's in a space upstairs at the O'Farrell Theater, one of the most famous erotic dance clubs in the country.
