Anthologist Martin H. Greenberg has announced his retirement from editing. After producing in excess of 3000 anthologies, Greenberg has run out of stories to anthologize. "Some stories I've reprinted three, four times. Enough!" Greenberg admitted he has a staff of assistants scouring the globe for un-anthologized stories. "They're investigating a rumor about four stories in Serbo-Croatian that I may have missed."
A study released at last week's International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts, surveying SF and fantasy in the classroom, revealed that Robert J. Sawyer is now the most-taught writer in American universities, surpassing Ursula K. Le Guin. The study attributed the shift, in part, to the generosity of Sawyer himself, who offers remaindered copies of his books free to classrooms of financially-strapped students.
