Originally shared by Sam Maronie

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE AMAZING ACKERMONSTER

Forrest J Ackerman (born Forrest James Ackerman; November 24, 1916 – December 4, 2008) was an American magazine editor, science fiction writer and literary agent, a founder of science fiction fandom, a leading expert on science fiction and fantasy films,and acknowledged as the world’s most avid collector of genre books and movie memorabilia. He was based in Los Angeles, California.

i knew FJA for many years and actually worked with him on a couple of projects. It was always an experience. He could be charming, exasperating, generous, egomaniacal and about a dozen other things.

I had the extreme fortune to visit his gem-packed Hollywood home. It was crammed-full of the most fantastic cinema collectors items you could ever imagine!

He was as incredible as the sci-fi subjects he loved so much. I consider myself fortunate to have known him.
