What Makes Tony Monchinski Unique?

I think what makes tony Monchinski unique is his breadth of interests. He is a teacher, scholar and bodybuilder in addition to being a zombie author.

Tony Monchinski  has focused some of his scholarly work on John Gerassi, whom he also interviewed in person  in 2002.  He is also a photographer and writer in the field of bodybuilding.  In Boy Culture: An Encyclopedia, Monchinski contributed the "Bodybuilding" article. (Scroll down after link- article starts in the middle of page 145.) Oh, AND he has published a thoughtful interview in Cultural Logic: An Electronic Journal of Marxist Theory and Practice.

That's a pretty diverse set of skills, right there, dont'cha think?
