  • Forrest J Ackerman was an American collector of science fiction books and movie memorabilia and a science fiction fan. He was, for over seven decades, one of science fiction's staunchest spokesmen and promoters. Ackerman was a Los Angeles, California-based magazine editor, science fiction writer and literary agent, a founder of science fiction fandom, a leading expert on science fiction and fantasy films, and possibly the world's most avid collector of genre books and movie memorabilia. He was the editor and principal writer of the American magazine Famous Monsters of Filmland, as well as an actor, from the 1950s into the 1980s, and appears in at least two documentaries related to this period in popular culture: Director Michael R. MacDonald, and writer, Ian Johnston's Famous Monster: Forrest J Ackerman, which premiered at the Egyptian Theatre in March, 2009, during the Forrest J Ackerman Tribute, writer and filmmaker Jason V Brock's The Ackermonster Chronicles!, and Charles Beaumont: The Life of Twilight Zone's Magic Man, about the late author Charles Beaumont, a former client of The Ackerman Agency.
