We are so deeply saddened to learn of the sudden death of Iambik founding narrator and prolific Librivox short sci-fi enthusiast Gregg Margarite.
Gregg participated in Iambik’s inaugural literary fiction collection with Gordon Lish’s Collected Fictions, to which Gregg contributed over 16 hours of audio. He branched into the crime fiction genre with his release of Terry Griggs’ Thought You Were Dead, and most recently for Iambik, lent his distinctive baritone to Iambik’s production of Benjamin Pazybok’s Couch.
In the wider world, Gregg was well-known for his hundreds of public domain recordings on Librivox.org, and his penetrating eye and ear for science fiction short fiction masterworks. Some of his self-recommended titles, as well as an archive of his interviews with the website SFFAudio, can be found on his website, Acoustic Pulp.
The world of digital audiobook production is a small and tightly-knit one, and to suggest we’ve lost a family member is not euphemistic. Gregg’s work, his wit, his dedication and his knowledge will be sorely missed, although we realise our great fortune in knowing his voice will live on.
