Beer and Small Beer

Mike read more than anyone I know. He turned me on the literary 'zine, Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet, as well as other gems from Small Beer Press. We got a kick out of the fact that NYPL, where we both worked, had catalogued the publisher as 'Small Bear' (it's since been corrected in the catalogue). When we worked at NYPL I often checked his patron record to see what he was reading. He always had a million books on hold, all of them interesting. I would then check them out myself, but I only read a fraction of what Mike read. He was also very fond of the science fiction reading series at the KGB bar. I miss you, Mike.

He had a very long and complicated theory about why he didn't like The Lord of the Rings trilogy, but refused to tell me what it was because he said he didn't want to ruin the series for me. He was so funny!
