He was the author of some two dozen novels and over one hundred short stories across the fields of SF, mystery, humour, and satire, as well as a great deal of genre-related non-fiction. He edited numerous SF and Fantasy anthologies and was an expert on the writing of Edgar Rice Burroughs. He died in 2020.
