Pulp Fiction - A Serial Killer In Amsterdam

by Editorial Staff in Films & Books , 01 December 2009

Dit artikel is ook in het Nederlands beschikbaar

This summer the pulp novella “Het Beest van Amsterdam” (The Beast of Amsterdam) was published. It’s a story about a serial killer strangling his way through the Amsterdam gay scene while potential victims happily keep screwing around.

Author GJ Wielinga: “I’ve been fascinated by serial killers for a while and by Jeffrey Dahmer in particular, who killed seventeen men in the eighties.

I came across a photo of Dahmer at the time in ‘Nieuwe Revu’ or another crime magazine and I found I couldn’t take my eyes off of him. He was a gorgeous man with very childish eyes. I’ve carried his photo with me in my wallet for years. Last year I read a lot about the Weimar Republic and by accident came across a certain Fritz Haarmann, also a serial killer. He was called the Werewolf of Hanover. Haarmann told the police he would wake up in the morning and find yet another dead boy next to him in bed. Haarmann used to bite off his victims throats while having sex. I immediately wondered what it would be like to have such an uncontrollable urge to kill men. Fortunately I’m a writer.”

“After my rather experimental autobiographic debut novel ‘Schaduwland’ (Shadow Land) I felt like writing a simple horny story. I love pornographic wank-off literature. How an author writes you to a climax. I didn’t really want the focus to be on the orgasm when I wrote the story, but I feel flattered when people tell me something grew in their pants when they were reading ‘Het Beest van Amsterdam.’ Sex and murders turn a lot of men on, I think.”

“The story takes place in the Amsterdam of today, so I’ve used a number of known locations such as coffeeshop The Other Side, gym A Bigger Splash and bars like PRIK, The Cuckoo’s Nest and the Argos. People in the Argos were happily surprised they were mentioned in the story. A
ll the characters in the book are fictional, except for one: Jelger, one of the owners of PRIK. His ‘perfectly shaped butt’ is checked out. I thought the story couldn’t do without that information.”

“Het Beest van Amsterdam” is available (in Dutch only, however) at the gay bookshops in Holland and Flanders, at Pink Point, Gays & Gadgets, Thermos Sauna, as well as via GJ Wielinga’s website for € 10.00.
