Bill Griffiths at Edge Hill

Bill Griffiths read at Edge Hill about six months before he died. Here, in Andrew Taylor's photograph, you can see Robert Sheppard introducing Bill before his reading at the Rose Theatre, to entertain us with tales of faregrounds and travels to Hungary. He read a couple of times at Edge Hill and was a favourite with members of the group. Member Alice Lenkiewicz organised a reading for him and her magazine Neon Highway contains an interview with him (read here). He is missed. (Remember his uncollected 'Ghost Strories' are serialised in earlier postings of 'Pages', one a month, from October 2005 onwards.)
