NYT5 - (NYT5) UNDATED -- Feb. 21, 2005 -- OBIT-THOMPSON-BW -- Hunter S. Thompson in an undated portrait released in 2003 by Simon & Schuster during publication of his book, "Kingdom of Fear: Loathsome Secrets of a Star-Crossed Child in the Final Days of the American Century." Thompson, the maverick journalist and author whose savage chronicling of the underbelly of American life and politics embodied a new kind of nonfiction writing he called "gonzo journalism," died Sunday, Feb. 20, 2005 in Colorado. Tricia Louthis, of the Pitkin County Sheriff's Office, said Thompson had died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at his home in Woody Creek, Colo. He was 65. (William J.
