Late writer Hunter S Thompson will have a series of books released posthumously.

The author, who shot himself dead on Sunday (20FEB05) at the age of 67, has a number of titles waiting to be published alongside his well-known works HELL'S ANGELS, Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas and THE RUM DIARY.

Publishing houses SIMON + SCHUSTER and RANDOM HOUSE have 13 novels in total written by Thompson.

Thompson's lawyer GEORGE TOBIA JR says, "There are some other materials that we're looking to put together."

Of the death of his client, he adds, "(Sunday) night was a long and horrible night.

"People who are close to Hunter are going back over their 10 or 15 conversations with him, wondering if there were clues and what you could have done."
