Back from the dead
Memorializing Forry Ackerman reminded me of The Monster Times, copies of which have been yellowing in my parents' basement for more than 30 years. It was a clever, tabloid-style publication, the kind superseded by the slicker Fangoria. The durable Fango is behind its resurrection, including new issues with input by its founders--but I'm more interested in browsing the original 1972-1978 run, which is being digitized. Childhood never ends; it just migrates online.
