Hunter S. Thompson's widow Anita has revealed that the Fear and Loathing writer could be a father again from beyond the grave: before his suicide he froze some of his sperm. "Hunter and I were always trying to have children," she told the Scottish Herald, " But I could still have his child if I want to. … He left that possibility for me. … Would I want to raise the child without Hunter? Children do better with a father, although I think it would be beautiful for Hunter to have another child, as we had tried so many times unsuccessfully. I believe it's something Hunter would want, but at this point in my life I'm a little fearful of making that kind of decision. I wouldn't want to do it as a way of replicating Hunter, of prolonging Hunter, or as a way of filling the void."
