This issue of PKD Otaku holds special significance because of two related reasons. First, the issue is entirely devoted to the life and recent death of Paul Williams and second, the issue was published on May 19th, 2013 which would have been Paul Williams 65th birthday. This beloved man definitely will be missed.
