Happy Birthday Forrest J. Ackerman

Forrest J. Ackerman

Originally uploaded by Thomas Roche

A very happy 92nd to überfan, editor, writer and occasional actor, producer and literary agent Forrest J. Ackerman, aka “Forry,” whose absolute lunacy for science fiction has made him an inspiration to fanatics like me for generations. The man was born before the US entered World War I and began collecting Amazing Stories in 1926. That, my friends, is what we call OLD SCHOOL.

Visit him at his MySpace page.
