So Long, Uncle Forry

Sad news, Horror and Science Fiction's number one fan, Forrest J. Ackerman, died last night at the age of 92. His tireless energy and enthusiasm for all things Psychotronic will be sorely missed.

The Ackermonster, as he was fond of being called, was probably best known as the editor of Famous Monsters of Filmland, a magazine that made a big impression on many a squishy young brain back in the day (including mine). The cover illustrations were particularly noteworthy. You can view them all here.

Rot In Peace. Mr. Ackerman.
