Old School San Francisco journalist. Editor of seminal New Left magazine Ramparts from 1964 to 1968(?). Co-editor of Scanlan's sporting magazine, author of various books, the most entertaining of which is If You Have a Lemon, Make Lemonade, a loose memoir of his days at Ramparts and his misadventures with sixties figures like Eldridge Cleaver and Hunter S. Thompson. Formerly a columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle and Examiner. Drinks plenty. Currently writes a column for the SF Independent that, while usually sloppy, underreported and marred by political biases, is entertaining. Reportedly, Hinckle will take some sort of high-level editorial position with the Ted Fang-owned Examiner, but what he will be doing there remains unclear.
