"Fire in the Nuts" is a semi-autobiographical short story written by Hunter S. Thompson in the late 1950s.[1] It was released in late 2004 in an extremely limited edition of 176 copies, all numbered and signed by Thompson and illustrator Ralph Steadman. The book follows the story of Harrison Fieler (clearly based on Thompson himself), an aspiring writer struggling in New York City.

The story was republished in the third issue of The Woody Creeker (widow Anita Thompson's magazine that, due to interest, gained international attention and distribution), complete with Steadman's illustrations.
