Condolences to all who knew Gregg.

and although the dead may have no more part to play as characters,
their influence may continue right throughout the story.' John Peel

I was really shocked to read this - and it makes me very sad. But it's nice to know there are 200+ hours of audio that Gregg produced out there for us to listen to anytime. Thank you, Gregg. :)

Oh jeepers! I'm awfully sorry to hear that. Gregg was a great reader, and was an enthusiastic contributor to the Ghost/Horror Stories collections when I was curating them. :cry:

I never knew him in the forums, but his SF many recordings have given me many hours of great pleasure before I had any idea who he was. His tastes in things to record was right on track with mine and I still get excited when downloading another of his books. He has passed away but his beautiful recordings will live forever. At least in my MP3 player.
