Marc Ortlieb, a Melbourne, Australia, fan, was the founding editor of the fanzine Australian SF Bullsheet, and ended his seven-year tenure as editor in September 2001. He was also an editor of the Australian Science Fiction Foundation fanzine The Instrumentality.

In 1982, he administered the Mid-Atlantic Fan Fund. He was "Convention Muggins" of SpawnCon Two, the 1999 Australian NatCon, and edited the Aussiecon III Progress Reports and convention newsletter, The Monotreme. He was toastmaster of Tschaicon in 1982.

Lists prepared by Marc have been useful starting points for online lists of Australian Natcons, Ditmar Award results, and fan fund candidates. An old website of his has enabled completion of a list of winners of the Australian Science Fiction Media Awards.

He has been a member of FAPA, Stippleapa, and TAPA but is only currently active in ANZAPA. He has been married to fellow fan Cath Ortlieb since May 1984.
