             Cover, Jack Fritscher’s American Men, 55 photographs, 1995, Gay Men’s Press, London.
             The collection in American Men reveals Fritscher’s depth-perception of Drummer. The
             British publisher originally planned to print a full-color cover dramatizing the model
             “Goliath” in his red-and-white wrestling tights against the blue sky, wearing boxing
             gear to characterize American aggression astride the world. In the 1990s when former
             Drummer editor Joseph W. Bean, and Alex Wagner, were editors creating various “Vir-
             tual Drummer” magazines at Brush Creek Media, they did justice to the original color
             of this photograph on the cover of Powerplay 10 (May 1996). One of Fritscher’s most
             frequent models over a period of twelve years, “Goliath” also appeared twice in Drum-
             mer 140 (June 1990), as the centerfold in Drummer 148 (April 1991), and, favorited,
             on the cover of Drummer publisher Anthony DeBlase’s “Virtual Drummer,” Dungeon-
             Master 47 ( January 1994), and Harold Cox’s Checkmate Incorporating DungeonMaster
             18 (February 1997). Photograph by Jack Fritscher. ©Jack Fritscher
