RARA-AVIS: Hunter S. Thompson

Does anyone consider Hunter S. Thompson as within the hard boiled tradition? Someone recently maintained to me that he was, I disputed it, but I'm not entirely sure. For one thing, his work is not fiction (although that's open to question, isn't it?). Second, his potpourri of drug-induced horros doesn't seem very hard-boiled to me.
