Famous Monsters of Filmland editor featured

The Associated Press features the editor of Famous Monsters of Filmland:

Just like the vampires in the Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine he edited for 25 years, Forrest J. Ackerman isn't planning on leaving this world until somebody drives a stake through his heart. "Oh, I'm not going if I can't take it with me," Ackerman jokes as he gestures toward the thousands of pieces of science-fiction and horror movie memorabilia that fill his Los Angeles home. "That's one of my favourites," he says, pointing to a black vampire cape worn by Bela Lugosi in the 1931 film Dracula. It now hangs on a mannequin in Ackerman's living room, just above a coffin that he jokes doubles as a day bed.
