Remembering Forrest J. Ackerman - Collector's Treasure of the Day

Forrest J. Ackerman and friends at the Ackermansion (1969)
Endorsed Check Signed by Forrest J. Ackerman and Marion Zimmer Bradley
Today marks the birthday of Forrest J. Ackerman (1916 - 2008), the sci-fi collector, publisher of Famous Monsters of Filmland Magazine, and literary agent. Uncle Forry shared his sci-fi and horror  collections with other fans for decades at his Ackermansion, and he is truly missed. Our Collector's Treasure of the Day is this 1956 check to fantasy novelist Marion Zimmer Bradley (1930 - 1999), a client of Ackerman. She is best known for her fantasy novels such as The Mists of Avalon and the Darkover series. Signed by both. Provenance Jerry Weist Collection. Authenticity guaranteed for life by Collector's Shangri-La.
