One Hundred Years ago, Forrest J Ackerman was born. As editor of Famous Monsters of Filmland, he would go on to influence many wonderful people who love horror, fantasy, and science fiction.
I remember visiting his 22 room mansion named the Ackermansion when I was a kid and I was in awe of all of props, books, and posters that he owned. Years later, I got to see him a little more often when I did a little documentary on him for my senior project in college.
Forry passed away in 2008, but the world will always remember him.
