Forrest J. Ackerman "Slipping Away"

Above: Forrest J. Ackerman, Ray Harryhausen and Ray Bradbury in a photo from the 1980s, nicked from the Official Sci-Fi Boys site.

Via Harry Knowles: " ... I was told that Forry was lucid, peaceful and not even on pain medication, but that he was progressively getting worse - and was ready to move on."

Ackerman, who is 91, helped found the Los Angeles Science Fantasy Society and edited the Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine (1952-1983). His mailing address is at the above link.
