(December 16, 1937 – September 21, 2019)

Norman "Norm" C. Metcalf was a California fan and bibliographer whose The Index of Science Fiction Magazines 1951-1965 (1968) is a sequel to Index to the Science Fiction Magazines 1926-1950 (1952) by Donald B. Day.

Over the years he collected prozines and fanzines and belonged to several clubs, including the Little Men (of which he was Secretary), LASFS, N3F, SFG, and the Colorado Fantasy Society. He was Hugo administrator for ???.

He collected the eight SF stories about Sherlock Holmes that were included in the anthology The Science Fictional Sherlock Holmes (1960), edited by Robert C. Peterson.

He was a member of many apas, including: OMPA, FAPA, Shadow FAPA, The Cult, SFPA, PEAPS, SAPS, CRAP, IPSO, and N'APA.

Metcalf seems to have been a perfectionist. He had partnered with J. Ben Stark on The Index of Science Fiction Magazines 1951-1965 with Metcalf doing the research and Stark the publishing. Stark eventually gave up on waiting and published what he had and Metcalf never forgave him.
