Revenge of the Ackermonster!

Throughout my young years, I was a fan of sci-fi and horror movies – I loved watching and reading all about them (kind of explains how I turned out, I suppose). One of my favourite magazines was Famous Monsters of Filmland, a title created and edited (in its’ original run) by Forrest J. Ackerman, writer and film buff extraordinaire.

Sadly, Mr. Ackerman passed away last Thursday, thus taking away one of the biggest proponents of sci-fi and horror film who ever existed. He left behind a huge collection of movie memorabilia, but more impostantly, he left behind a lifelong love of genre film and some pleasant childhood memories.
