He is a member of the PKD Society, and edits a National Fantasy Fan Federation publication, The Prairie Timebinder. He recently wrote this magazine's editor, "Right now I am in the midst of teaching a Freshman 101 course... three weeks, three hours a day, five days a week with a class of all engineering students. They happen to be Chinese Malaysians as well. I feel like an alien sometimes trying to explain American English and American culture to a group of outsiders."
