Here are a few pages from Forrest J. Ackerman's MONSTERLAND, a later reincarnation of the legendary FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND. It has it's moments, but generally it's a little anemic as monster 'zines go. Forry's trademark fan boy enthusiasm runs unabated throughout, however, which makes it instantly reminiscent of the halcyon days of monster magazines. I've added a couple of pages of make-up and prosthetics ads along with the interesting line of masks that have the obvious influence of the 80's.

I'm an actor who works in the horror genre in LA. Like all fans of FM, I made the pilgrimage to see Forrey almost as soon as the plane landed at LAX. I was lucky that it was one of his good days (he'd be dead a few months later.) I was his only visitor that day and he made me laugh with stories about Karloff and Chaney and being mistaken for Vincent Price (and vice versa) on an airplane. I grew up weird and he made me feel ok about that. God bless him and God rest him.
