Forrest J. Ackerman, 1916-2008: R.I.P.

If you grew up in the 60's and 70's you knew who Forrest J. Ackerman was:

Publisher and editor of Famous Monsters of Filmland, Ackerman was the ur-fanboi of monster films. The Wikipedia entry is a good place to go for a snapshot of his long, eventful life.

Wonder if he'll be buried with Bela Lugosi's Dracula ring? Probably not.
