Sir Grace was the most valiant of all knights, decked in glorious armor that glowed in the sun and a record of dragon-slaying and maiden saving on par with none.

    Mr Greenhalgh, I saw ur comment on Devon Cox blog & clicked. I listened to “Fall of a Hero”. Impressive! Iam not a critic so I dont know about technical comparisons. I listened for 25m+ because I enjoyed it. I had a boss in 1970 that would record, from his collection, ancient radio programs on my blank “cassette tapes” in exchange for another blank. I had a couple of “The Shadow”, “Sherlock Holmes”, a comedy duo(not L&H or A&C) & some others I cant remember. All lost over time. Keep Going. later llc.

  • llc — thanks so much for the comment! Good to hear that the story clicks even for a non-audio enthusiast… that’s one of the worries with this work. Hope you enjoy the rest of the site.


  • Such a great mix here at Final Rune. Really dig it. This one kind of reminded me of that old world conservatism. Our hero was lost in the past and old thinking, unable to change. And what does not change, dies.
