R.I.P. Uncle Forry

Forrest J. Ackerman passed at age 92.  Be at rest, and thank you for shaping my childhood.

  1. As sick as he’s been we all knew it was coming, but that doesn’t make it any less sad to the millions whose childhoods he shaped. I had the pleasure of his company at a SF con in 1980. We chatted for an hour or so about all kinds of movies, not just horror or SF. I think he was pleasantly surprised to find someone on their early 20s who loved silent films as much as he did. I still love them, and think fondly on that day whenever I watch one.

  2. Oddly enough, I was watching his scene in The Howling about the time he passed away.
