    1. I was born on May 7, 1933, in Roosevelt, Utah, but grew up in a small neighboring town called Vernal, high in the Rocky Mountains, near the Colorado border, on old Highway 40 I grew up as The Best Little Mormon Boy In The Whole Wide World, but defected at age 16 when I discovered I was Queer, and my Bishop told me I was an Abomination in the sight of God and would burn in Hell forever if I didn t repent Obviously I didn t repent Eventually when ALL IS WELL was published, in 1973 I asked out of the LDS church because I was Gay, sent them a copy of ALL IS WELL my wish was granted without protest I am now, officially, NOT a Latter Day Saint During college at the University of Utah, I wrote my first Gay Novel, TO THEMSELVES UNKNOWN, dared to submit it to a creative writing seminar, the summer I graduated One of the best first novels I ve ever read, said Albert Guerrard, a then famous novelist teacher of the seminar Unfortunately, its subject matter is homosexuality, which severely limits its publication possibilities You could try one of the porno houses, but I hope you won t have to do that It would spoil a good book That was 1958.A professional agent at Curtis Brown spent a frustrating year, trying unsuccessfully to find a publisher Finally, in desperation, I sent TO THEMSELVES UNKNOWN to Greenleaf Classics in San Diego, and it ended up being published as a Fag Hot called WHO KILLED QUEEN TOM GL s addition of hot fag sex to my sensitive self examination definitely ruined it, for me, at least.The rest of my story is on my personal website Please first visit DirkVanden Dot net, not DirkVanden dot com Three of my books are still available at the dot com address All of my titles are listed here on Some are listed as Not Available I m in the process of converting all my books to Kindle and am searching for a copy of WHO KILLED QUEEN TOM From Greenleaf Classics Pleasure Readers, 1969 From time to time the originals are listed for sale on Two here now have 5 star reviews I WANT IT ALL ALL IS WELL.My new novel ALL OF ME Can You Take All Of Me A Gay Mystery, has just been published by Rosedog Books, in POD Paperback, or various e formats on RoseDog s Yahoo bookstore It is also now available on Kindle and as a cheaper paperback on the Prime program free shipping

    2. I liked this raw, edgy story a lot. It is not a romance by any means but an in your face look at one man's life in pre-aids San Francisco. It all started with a gang rape that changed Warren Miller's life. This is Warren's account of that night and what followed it. I enjoyed Warren's naivety and his fresh look at gay life. Mr. Vanden's note at the beginning was the perfect introduction to the book and should be heeded. Based on fact, this book is worth the read if for nothing else than its hist [...]

    3. There is an authenticity and rawness to I Want It All that appealed to me, but in ultimately I could only rate it 3.5 at best. I wasn't offended by the rape scene, the drugs or the unprotected sex - those were the times - I just did not connect with the characters and I struggle to see how this is seen as a minor classic in some circles. It could be that I am not a gay man, but then again good writing and a cohesive plot should overcome that problem.

    4. I read this on Teddy Pig's recommendation and am glad I did. Yes, it is dated, yes it's not PC (by many standards) containing as it does instances when the protagonists take drugs and carry on with a number of unsafe sex practices.So let's lay down a few facts in case you are temptedIf the concept of golden showers and other such things turns you off, don't read this book.If you don't like learning about what it was like to be gay back in the 1970's, don't read this book.If sections like this:Ga [...]
