Today we're celebrating the 94th anniversary of the birth of the original Sci-Fi and Monster Kid himself:
Forrest J Ackerman
November 24th, 1916 -- December 4th, 2008
Vonnetta and I had a fantastic visit to his Ackermansion back in
January of 2002. This picture is one of my prized possessions.
Of course, patrons of the Skull & Pumpkin know all about my love for 4SJ. For a stretch it seemed that all I talked about was 4E, as I headed to Burbank and a very memorable Monsterpalooza convention with my animatronic tribute to him.
So even though I've posted this before, I'll do it once more in honor of his birthday, and let him have the (almost) final word:
Forrest J Ackerman Shall Not Die!
