Illustration for article titled R.I.P. Forrest J. Ackerman

Forrest Ackerman, creator of Famous Monsters magazine and Ray Bradbury's former literary agent, has died at age 91. The L.A. Times has a great article about touring his Ackermansion and seeing his amazing collection of memorabilia — the fate of which is unclear — and hearing how he first fell in love with science fiction in 1926. Said Ackerman, "I felt that the primary authors of science fiction were opening my eyes ... to a better and more fascinating world." Goodbye, 4E. You'll be missed. [L.A. Times]
