Marty Greenberg, R. I. P.

I just learned of the passing of Marty Greenberg. it's a terrible and saddening loss for all of us who've been lucky enough to have been associated with him in one way or another over the years. His anthologies provided me with my first short story publications and many subsequent ones . My sympathies go out to his family and to everyone at Tekno Books. Marty was one of a kind, a true gentleman, and he'll be greatly missed.

Sad news.

I always look for Greenberg anthologies to find new favorite authors--he had a knack for choosing good stories.

A good man. Sad news indeed.

Although not unexpected, still very sad news. I was fortunate to publish two books through Tekno/Five Star and it was a great experience.
