AUTHOR-EDITOR
I've just finished writing BATMAN: A CELEBRATION OF THE CLASSIC TV SHOW with Joe Desris for Titan Books. Due out in October, 2015. Always interested in film, I wrote a number of stories for magazines like CINEFANTASTIQUE and FILMFAX, and am working on an expansive history of fantasy film from the silent era to today.

As an editor, I specialize in science fiction and fantasy anthologies, my latest is WORLDS OF EDGAR RICE BURROUGHS edited with Mike Resnick. I have also edited UNREPENTANT: A CELEBRATION OF THE WRITINGS OF HARLAN ELLISON, TEMPORARY WALLS with Greg Ketter and CHILLED TO THE BONE.

I've packaged books for publishers and conventions. DreamHaven Books published the 1st US edition of Vargo Statten's CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON novelization. And the MadCon convention published HARLEQUINS.
