                •  Jeanne Barney, First and Founding Los Angeles Editor in
             Chief of Drummer: “For those of us who were there inventing Drum-
             mer three decades ago, Fritscher serves up a thoroughly researched and
             well-written account of a particular era in gay history, reporting on what
             may well have been ‘The Golden Age of Leather’ and of Drummer . . . Gay
             San Francisco is an historical resource for those who want to know How
             Things Used to Be, as well as a nostalgic look back for those of us who
             were ourselves eyewitness participants. I invite you all to join us in this
             extraordinary walk down memory lane.”
                •  John F. Karr, Bay Area Reporter: “Veteran author Jack Fritscher

             Market prose style (as well as its magazines . . . ) . . . .  Fritscher writes with
             sweat and wit.”

             in a remarkable place, combining contemporary documents, photographs
             and reportage with a first-hand and first-rate memoir that brings an
             unforgettable era back to life . . . . ”
                • Fritscher is “the ground-breaking editor of Drum-
             mer magazine.”
                •  Willie Walker, GLBT Historical Society, San Francisco: “Jack
             Fritscher is a prolific writer who since the late sixties has helped document

             Photographs, The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and
             Reproduction, Indiana University: “Those of us who are concerned
             with the preservation of GLBT history are very fortunate that Jack Frit-
