I think this is a famous enough work to have its own page. Lady Gray 01:16, 12 August 2007 (UTC)

Well, typically we try to keep quotes from books on the same page as their author, unless there's a compelling reason to do so otherwise (typically this is because the book is very popular, such as 1984, or because the book is part of a series and the series has its own page, such as The Lord of the Rings). The reason for this is that it's fairly typical for a book with its own page to quickly grow large enough that it could be a copyright violation, and we've found that by keeping books as sections on their authors' pages, length is typically kept down. I can't say I'm convinced that this needs its own page, but on the other hand, the new page is filled-out enough that it could stand on its own. I would just suggest that you move over all the quotes from Hunter S. Thompson#Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1971) into the new page, and replace them with {{main|Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (novel)}}.
