Other titles Hank helped bring to fruition as primary editor were various special issues
of Creem including the popular Heavy Metal Hall of Fame, the Music and
Performing Arts trade FocalPoint, Rock Fever and many others. Additionally, he
served as senior editor on Rock Scene, Metal Mania, and Concert Shots.
