''in the early 1970s he burst into fairly brief prominence when, with indefatigable salesmanship, he sold a huge number of Original Anthologies - more than 50 in all - to a wide variety of publishers). It has been estimated that Elwood alone constituted about a quarter of the total market for sf short stories - though see Mike Ashley's tempered analysis of these claims in Gateways to Forever: The Story of the Science-Fiction Magazines from 1970 to 1980 (2007) - and such dominance intensified the negative response to his strictures against any use of sex and religion in his anthologies that might be deemed obscene or ''permissive'' or irreligious according to a conservative Christian understanding of these offences. Notable among his many anthologies were: Future City (anth 1973); Saving Worlds (anth 1973; vt THE WOUNDED PLANET 1974) with Virginia Kidd; the Continuum sequence, beginning Continuum 1 (anth 1974), whose four volumes featured eight different four-part series; and Epoch (1975) with Robert Silverberg'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
