He organized Lasfapacon in 1980, helped run Corflu 9 in 1992, and chaired Corflu 34 in 2017. Marty was a longtime OE of LASFAPA and a member and also OE (he preferred the title "Little Tin God") of APA-L for many years. He was an agent for the Britain in '87 Worldcon bid.

He published the sixth edition of The Neo-Fan's Guide with Mike Glyer in 1984. He and Robbie published 27 issues of the fanzine Holier Than Thou. It was nominated for the Best Fanzine Hugo in 1984–86.
