I received it too, and was more than a bit surprised since this
was the first I had heard of it. Was kind of funny, cause it was
hot on the heels of another letter telling me someone had published
the Publicly Accessible List of Lists, but upon scoping it out, we
discovered it was actually the Bitnet List of Lists (unfortunately,
the book was sold out so we couldn't see it for ourselves).
Anyhow, I mailed off a note to him and told him he was violating my
copyright, and we've been discussing the matter in email (he had
incorrectly assumed the PALoL was in the public domain).

I don't know about that, but he says he's compiling an Internet
dictionary -- basically what's there and available on the Internet.

Tell him. Correct it or else refuse him permission to publish your list.

I pointed this out to him. He doesn't understand why (I'm going to explain
it to him), but has already agreed to not do this.
