I only learned about this today. Forrest J. Ackerman passed away in Los Angeles last Thursday of heart failure. He was 92.

This isn’t game-related; Forry never had anything to do with games. But it’s a sad moment for all of us horror/SF fans. I’d have loved to see the famous Ackermansion in its glory days with that incredible collection of memorabilia. Unfortunately, I was on the wrong coast, and never had the chance.

Anyway, whether you know who he is or not (and how could you not?), take a moment to read the obit at the LA Times. There won’t be anyone like him again.
