Requiem (Updated)

Last week, news filtered out that Mike Simanoff, the blogger behind Little Toy Robot (and other sites over the years), had died. Jeff Bryant wrote about him more eloquently than I’m able to. I only "knew" Mike through our respective sites and exchanging comments over the years; which is to say I knew him enough to be very, very sad for his friends, family and the world that he’s no longer here with us.

John Klima has posted his short story "Morris, His Self," which was in Electric Velocipede #6. There’s also a memorial site. R.I.P.

Updated from Michael’s brother (thanks, Colleen):

"Many people have asked about flowers and memorial donations. We are asking people to make donations in Michael’s memory to the National Alliance for Research on Schizophrenia and Depression." ( )

  1. WHAT? THE? FUCK? When did this happen? WHAT happened? Mike was a friend of mine; we used ot hang out when he lived here in Astoria.
    Aw, Jesus. I thought this day couldn’t get any worse.

  2. Oh no; I’m so sorry you found out like this. I still haven’t heard what happened — whatever it was, a terrible tragedy.
