Paul Anik

I'm heartbroken to report that Paul Anik, book collector and mystery lover who was organizing Left Coast Crime 2010 in Los Angeles, died suddenly of a heart attack.

I have seldom known anyone who was so enthusiastic about life and the books he loved. He will be missed.

I have known Paul and his lovely family for over fifteen years, and live in his community. I considered him a warm, funny, intelligent and above all, a loyal friend. His memorial service was attended by hundreds, and the shock and sorrow felt by everyone was palpable. He will be sorely missed by those who had the good fortune of knowing him. Alan Sedley
