Hunter S. Thompson's widow will co-edit a new magazine called The Woody Creeker, which is expected to hit newsstands next month.

The gonzo journalist shot himself in his kitchen Feb. 20, apparently despondent over health problems.

"We have some good writers already," Anita Thompson told Colorado's Aspen Times for its Tuesday editions. Satirist and political commentator P.J. O'Rourke plans a profile of her husband based on interviews in 1987 and 1997, she said.

Anita Thompson continues to work on a book she calls "Hunter's Wisdom," a collection of witticisms, aphorisms and other expressions from Hunter S. Thompson's bibliography of 14 books, along with her personal notes.

The magazine is named after Woody Creek, Colo., the community where the Thompson property is located.
