René Louis Gysen (Antwerpen 8.3.1927 - Antwerpen 2.3.1969) was a Belgian writer of experimental fiction.

From 1956 to 1964 Gysen was an editor for Gard Sivik and from 1964 to 1969 for Komma. He considered Paul de Wispelaere and Willy Roggeman his peers, and admired De Sade, Beckett, Genet en Bataille.

Gysen translated De Sade's Juliette in 1965 and wrote an essay on Sade: De slecht befaamde Markies de Sade (1961). Eroticism was important to him. His Grillige Kathleen (1966) was compared to Nabokov's Lolita.
