(1918-2013) US publisher and anthologist, not to be confused with Martin H Greenberg, who was no relation. In 1948 he cofounded with David A Kyle and others Gnome Press, one of the small but important early publishers of Genre SF in hardcover format. Greenberg edited the Adventures in Science Fiction series of five anthologies for Gnome, comprising Men Against the Stars (anth 1950; cut 1951; differently cut vt 9 Stories from Men Against the Stars 1963), Travelers of Space (anth 1951), with sixteen illustrations by Edd Cartier, Journey to Infinity (anth 1951), The Robot and the Man (anth 1953) and All About the Future (anth 1955). Most are loosely thematic. He also edited two non-series anthologies for Gnome, Five Science Fiction Novels (anth 1952; with two stories omitted, cut vt The Crucible of Power 1953), and Coming Attractions (anth 1957), which consisted of sf-related nonfiction articles. In 2000 he was inducted into the First Fandom Hall of Fame. [PN]
