Remembering Martin H. Greenberg

Martin H. Greenberg, academic and prolific anthology editor, passed away this weekend after a long battle with cancer.

His name became one of the main reasons for me to just pick up an anthology and check out the stories within, leaning heavily towards buying it if the theme was interesting to me. The first volumes in the Fantastic series, Horse Fantastic and Dragon Fantastic, are well-worn copies in my personal library, and the expanded edition 2008 reissue of The Reel Stuff was, for a movie buff like me, a welcome addition of a gem that I'd never known about previously.

I will miss the spark of irresistible curiosity I'd get just from seeing his name on a brand new anthology.

Comments

  1. Totally agree Summer. If I was ever undecided about an anthology if it had Greenberg on the cover I'd go for it.
    RIP.
