Review of Forry: The Life of Forrest Ackerman
by TheThunderChild on Dec.18, 2011, under Books
Can any sci fi and/or horror genre fan not know who Forrest J Ackerman, aka The Ackermonster, is?
You’ve doubtless heard of him – the editor of Famous Monsters of Filmland from 1958-1983, cameos in dozens of science fiction films, collection of sci fi props, posters and other material on display, first at the Ackermansion and then at the Ackerminimansion, one of the three amigos along with Ray Harryhausen and Ray Bradbury.
McFarland has recently brought out a biography of Forry by a long-time friend, Deborah Painter, and The Thunder Child reviews it at Forry: The Life of Forrest J Ackerman.
