The widow of tragic author Hunter S Thompson has vowed never to remarry, because no man could fill the void he left.

ANITA - who married Thompson in 2003 - is still just 33 years old, 34 years younger than her late husband, but insists she will continue to dedicate her life to him following his suicide in February (05).

She says, "It's easy to be loyal. That's my choice. I don't have any intention of getting remarried. I'm 33, so statistically, I'm going to live for another 30 or 40 years. But no other man will be able to hold a candle to Hunter.

"I guess I'm in a bad position, but I'm not hypnotised. I'm not in a trance. I made a conscious decision to dedicate at least the next few decades to him when we got married."
