This is Evanier again. I have seized control of stevegerblog so that it, like Steve’s writing, can live on. At some point, his family and/or close friends will decide what to do about his weblog and website but I’ll keep them up and running for the time being, if only as a place to remember our friend.
I direct you to the Comments section on the previous message. It’s full of wonderful, emotional thoughts about Steve. Since it’s reaching an unwieldy number, I’m going to close down comments there and ask you to start posting your thoughts in response to this one. That will save Steve’s friends from having to keep scrolling through all the old postings to get to the new ones. I’ve also locked down all the previous forums.
A very fine obit for Steve can be found on Tom Spurgeon’s site. I commend it to you all.
Actually, there are dozens of fine articles and remembrances of Steve out there on the web now. If you’ve come across one or written one, please post a link to it in the Comments section.
I don’t know anything more at this time about memorial services, though I’ve been asked to host a couple of events at upcoming comic conventions. Details to follow.
Lastly for now, Paul Levitz had a wise suggestion. The Hero Initiative, a charity group that helps ailing comic book creators, had been doing a lot for Steve recently. It would be a nice thought to remember him with a donation in his name. Here’s a link to their website.
