The current editor is Fred Trafton, and you can see his reviews scattered throughout the GEPR. He inherited it in the summer of 2000 and has been editing and compiling it ever since. The previous editor was Stuart Dubois, but he gave up on it shortly after inheriting it. As far as I know, none of his work (if any) exists in the current GEPR. The bulk of the original GEPR compiling work was done by the first editor and GEPR originator, Mike Taylor. Mike still looks in on the GEPR from time to time, but has gone off to pursue other interests. Phil Kime does not now and never has maintained the GEPR, but he used to have a mirror site of the old GEPR. He does still have his own web site with some of its own interesting information in it, such as a list of CD ordering sources. Claudio Hernández does not maintain the GEPR either, but he does have a "portable" version of it (without the photos) available for use on PDA's, which you can download for free from here.

But the real answer to the question "who wrote the GEPR?" is: many people did, and so can you. Click here to learn how to become a contributor yourself. Below is a list of contributors to the GEPR, past and present.
