Greenberg had perhaps Too much influence as an anthology editor, but the books themselves were usually at least readable, and he did provide markets for some fiction when decent-paying markets for short fiction are always needed, as they have been since at least since the phasing out of fiction in slick magazines and the more bust than boom fiction magazines have faced since the 1950s...and some of his projects, including not a few with Ed and with Asimov and others, were very good indeed.

I also have to wonder how many authors got their first break through a Greenberg anthology? It would be something of a Herculean task to dig into the anthologies and find out, but I know there have to be at least a few.

Some, though he did like to return to Reliables. He was probably the first to computerize anthologizing in a sensible way.
