Re: Forest J. Ackerman RIP

He will be missed wand was a great pioneer. The best quote I read about his passing was, "Forry Ackerman died at age 11. He was 11 for 81 years. --Don Webb and John Joseph Adams

Mr. Ackerman lived as we all should, never losing the childlike wonder that makes life so full of wonder.

Re: RIP - 4E (Forrest J. Ackerman)

I always enjoyed meeting and talking with Forry when we were at the same cons. Damn.

It's one of those things -- I always expected he'd be around forever, so haven't gotten around to dropping him that "how the hell have you been" notes. Now it's too late.

I'm going to miss Forry. He was a helluva cool guy, very generous with his time and information, and a wonderful person to know.

Folks, please -- if there is anyone in your life you've put on the back burner, take this holiday season as an excuse to get in touch. Don't wake up someday to find that someone you cared for has passed away.

Re: Forest J. Ackerman RIP

Though I was raised on Fangoria, Starlog, and Cinefantastique, my father introduced me to FMOF one day and all the others seemed...inadequate. I learned so much about sci-fi and horror from FMOF, much more than I've ever learned from the Internets. Goodbye, Dr. Acula. We'll miss you. -Dan
