Joseph "Joe" Bongiorno is a writer/editor living on Long Island, New York.
Joe co-wrote the Marvel aliens piece with Rich Handley for the first Star Wars Gamer and was to have written several additional articles (including Supernatural Encounters in the Star Wars Universe and Cult Encounters of the Star Wars Universe) dealing with the beings introduced in the Star Wars Marvel UK series (reprinted as Devilworlds), but the magazine was cancelled before those issues were printed. He also contributed to the Archie Goodwin tribute in Star Wars Insider #38 and the timeline in West End Games' Revised Gamemaster Screen.
Joe is also the creator of timelineuniverse.net , a sprawling website containing comprehensive chronologies of various fantasy/sci-fi universes including:
- The Star Wars Expanded Universe Timeline
- The Royal Timeline of Oz
- A Chronology of Middle Earth
- The X-Files Chronology
- Roots of the Swamp Thing (created by author Rich Handley)
- The Hasslein Curve: A Timeline of the Planet of the Apes (also created by author Rich Handley)
Joe apparently wrote and submitted a story to StarWars.com's now defunct Hyperspace subscription service but it was never published.
