Forrest J. Ackerman - Famous Monster man
So, it's saddening to learn that Forrest J. Ackerman [right, wikipedia] died on Thursday at the age of 92. Ackerman, who went by a variety of nicknames, was the publisher of Famous Monsters of Filmland [below, wikipedia], the first magazine I ever subscribed to (and still have, tucked safely away). Forry was the ultimate science fiction fan who lived in a huge home filled to the rafters with sci-fi and monster movie memorabilia. It was my dream house.
