My friends at Lethe Press have sent me a new ebook edition of a classic work of gay science fiction. Exile in Paradise by Dirk Vanden (Richard Fullmer) was first published in 1969, the same year as the Stonewall riots. The original publisher called the book Twin Orbs because they liked salacious puns, but I believe that Exile in Paradise is the author’s preferred title.
I see that there is no mention of Vanden in the Science Fiction Encyclopedia. I shall have words with the management. There’s a good interview will him at Lambda Literary.
