R.I.P. Forrest J. Ackerman

Terrible, terrible news in the science fiction field.

I just learned that Forrest J. Ackerman has died. Forry Ackerman was probably science fiction's greatest fan, and he coined the term "sci fi". He had and has suffered from a long illness, and despite reports of his death last month, Ackerman made it to his 92nd birthday. He died just a couple of minutes short of midnight. You can read more about this remarkable man by following the link. His loss is a terrible blow to science fiction fans and professionals everywhere.

Rest in Peace, Forry. You've earned it.
