Hi! I'm CHRIS
GREGORY from Lancaster, England.
the author of two published works, BE SEEING YOU: DECODING
THE PRISONER and STAR TREK: PARALLEL NARRATIVES. Click on
the icons to the left for details. My aim in writing these
and other books on mass media and popular culture has been
to share my regard for certain 'media texts' which have
inspired me. Though I am a former lecturer, I'm not a professional
academic and I hope that my work will have a much wider
reach than an academic audience. I'm currently working on
books on THE BEATLES and MONTY PYTHON, extracts from which
will be appearing on this website soon.
also a published poet and writer of short stories. If you
click on the different sections above you'll see various
examples of my work.
particularly interested in the ways in which an ever-expanding
mass media culture is creating its own mythological structures
and is returning us to a new kind of tribalism - fulfilling
Marshall McLuhan's prophecy that the world is becoming a
'global village'... I believe it's important - at this particular
moment in time - that we all focus on preventing this 'village'
becoming a kind of 'prison'. Global communications could
mean fantastic freedom for us all, but this could easily
be curtailed by the creation of a global 'surveillance society'.

with your thoughts on the material here and/or proposals
for links to other sites. I've recently launched a blog where you can find out more about my current interests. The blog.
also been developing a style of 'warped' pic's to illustrate
my work, as you'll see on some of the pages!
thanks to Paul Ely for the original design and creation
of this site and to Aalia Wayfare for his continued technical
help and advice.
