Description by

In David Byron's fifth non-fiction book, Cinemassacres, he has assembled a vast array of special guests from the TV, film, and fiction industries, some that knew Forrest J. Ackerman personally, some who just wish to pay homage to the man fondly known as ''Uncle Forry,'' and some who had never net Forry but had always been fans of his work. Also known as ''Mr. SciFi,'' Forrest J Ackerman made a literary, historical breakthrough for fans of scifi and horror when he released the first issue of Famous Monsters of Film Land in February of 1958. Its success prompted spin-off magazines like Eerie, Creepy, and Vampirella, and was the obvious inspiration for magazines like Fangoria, Gorezone, Scars, and Rue Morgue.

Within this book you will find personal memoirs and heart-felt farewells from Forry's ?'best pal'' Joe Moe, Hammer Films scream siren Ingrid Pitt, TV horror host Count Gore Devol, author/humorist Michael McCarty, Sara Karloff, daughter of horror icon Boris Karloff, TV horror host and humorist John Dimes. And special guest interviews with authors Joe R. Lansdale, Chet Williamson, Jim O'Rear, and a lot of other friends and fans who have graciously agreed to drop by to help say farewell to ?'Uncle Forry.''
