Martin Greenberg, Editor: R.I.P.

Just heard from John Lutz that the fabulous Marty Greenberg passed away today after a lengthy battle with cancer. Martin Greenberg was a writer and editor of mystery, speculative fiction and horror. His many anthologies encouraged so many writers. He was born in 1941. Need to process this sad news.

Oh, no! I'm so very sorry. Must write Roz.

And he gave so, so many authors such as myself a start on their book publishing careers by acquiring manuscripts through Tekno Books for Five Star Publishing. I am so grateful to him and Roz and am keeping her in my prayers. The publishing world has lost a great man.

Marty not only meant a lot to the reader's and writer's communities, he meant a lot to me personally. He'll be greatly missed. My heart goes out to everyone at Tekno.
