FORREST ACKERMAN IS DEAD: BUT ONLY 4E NOW!

My obit of Forrest J Ackerman is in today's Guardian, you can find it here. Oddly enough, I was never a reader of Famous Monsters: as a kid I was too sophisticated for that stuff, and by the time my tastes started their precipitate decline, I was already beyond Forry's demographic. But's it's hard not to appreciate him...That's him, on the right in the picture, in 2001 with the B actress Denise Duff, cashing in on all that hard work promoting horror....or maybe she's trying to convert him to scientology, but as Forry was at one point L Ron Hubbard's agent for his sf writing, he's probably too smart to fall for that!

Uncle Forry was a great pioneer for the new global language, Esperanto.
