RIP Uncle Forry

I have been so busy I didn't hear about Forrest J Ackerman passing away on Thursday. He was 92 years old and known by many as Uncle Forry. He truly was the original Fanboy.
His magazine, Famous Monsters of Filmland, went a long way in revitalizing the horror genre and introducing monsters to a new generation of fans. I had a subscription to the re-vamped "Famous Monsters" years ago, but of course it wasn't as good as the original. I am glad that Forry had the chance to see the kick ass tribute that Rue Morgue did for him in the last Halloween issue.
