1978 was my first visit to the Ackermansion, home of Forrest J. Ackerman, founder of  FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND. Mr. Ackerman obviously loved to share what he had with other science fiction and horror fans as was evident by his generous hospitality. One time he took everyone at his home to his favorite local restaurant and bought us lunch. Although taken advantage of many times in the past, he continued to give tours of his fantastic collection up to the end of 2002. Forry has now sold his home and most of his collection.
