Dirk Vanden


Dirk Vanden (Richard Fullmer) was one of the heroes, the pioneers of the gay pulp movement. Between 1969 and 1971, he published seven novels—works that were viewed seriously enough to cause them to be listed by Ian Young in his great bibliography and by two different contributors to Claude J. Summers’s Gay and Lesbian Literary Heritage.
