Also via AICN: a rather sad story about the possibility of artifacts from the remarkable collection of legendary sci-fi collector (and the original source of the term 'sci-fi' itself), Forrest J. Ackerman. Ackerman, known also as the Ackermonster, Dr. Acula, or just plain "Forry", is already getting quite old and has been suffering from ill health recently. I don't know if I would ever have had the opportunity to tour the Ackermansion; now it looks like I will never have that opportunity. Ackerman is the collector of SF, fantasy and horror memorabilia; his collection is absolutely legendary and it is very sad to think that its days are numbered.
