Bio:
From the 1960s through the 1980s he collected Marvel Comics and compiled the Official Marvel Comics Index for Marvel. For 14 years he had the world’s only complete collection of Marvel superhero comics that extended all the way back to Marvel’s first comic book, Marvel Comics #1, October-November 1939. Now, however, he's no longer an active comic-book collector. During the Marvel Index project he produced some 60 fully illustrated books, totaling more than a million and a quarter words—but after 1976 he never did manage to index every single Marvel superhero comic, just the more popular runs.

Indexing sets of things seems to be in his blood: His present “day job” is professionally indexing books of all kinds as a freelancer. His Dinosaur Genera List website is essentially an index to all the dinosaur names, and his Uniform Polychora website is, likewise, an index to all the convex uniform polychora. Just to keep my verbal skills intact, he does each day’s New York Times crossword puzzle. During the early 1990s he served two years as president of the San Diego Stamp Club, but he's not currently an active stamp collector. (Over the course of some 40 years, he had assembled nearly complete collections of Poland, France, and United States postage and revenue stamps, and filling his want lists just became too expensive! He does keep up my membership in the American Philatelic Society, however, just in case he ever returns to stamp collecting.)
