His enormous collection fills a 4-car garage as well as his house, and he has read nearly all of it — in fact, he believes he may be the last person who had read all of SF in English — it is certainly too late for anyone born after him. His Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (2005), Encyclopedia of Fantasy and Horror Fiction (2006), and Encyclopedia of Adventure Fiction (2009) are especially noteworthy.
He also published It Ain't Heavy, It's My Library.
