Between 1987 and 1997 Tienken published 500 issues of Pulsar, writing 2,500 reviews of sf and fantasy books. From 1997-2011 he produced 313 issues of its successor, an online zine titled Bookview, which covered nonfiction books of all types.
The cause of his death has not been announced, however, over the years Tienken often noted in Bookview that he was receiving dialysis treatments and had health problems.
