Martin H. Greenberg (1941-2011)

Anthologist and academic Martin H(arry) Greenberg, 70, died June 25, 2011 after a long battle with cancer.

Greenberg held a doctorate in Political Science (1969) and taught at the University of Wisconsin — Green Bay until his retirement in 1996. He founded book packager Tekno Books, which produces about 150 titles per year and has over 2,300 published books translated into 33 languages. Greenberg received four genre Lifetime Achievement Awards: the Milford Award in science fiction, the Solstice award in science fiction, the Bram Stoker award in horror, and the Ellery Queen award in mystery.

Working solo and with notable colleagues including Isaac Asimov and Robert Silverberg, Greenberg edited scores of science fiction anthologies, as well as works in other genres and reference works. Notable academic titles include the Writers of the Twenty First Century series of anthologies reprinting critical articles on writers, coedited with Joseph D. Olander; and the Through Science Fiction series, coedited with Harvey Katz and Patricia Warrick, intended for teachers.

A full obituary will appear in the August 2011 issue of Locus. The SF Encyclopedia has additional details.
