An Ackermansion book is coming!

From the Classic Horror Film Board comes this bit of good news for Boomer-age Monster Kids and those Gen Xers who knew of Famous Monsters magazine and the Ackermansion:


HOUSE OF ACKERMAN, 142 pages (8.25 by 10.5 inches) in FULL COLOR, presents a faithful representation of what it was like to tour any of Forrest J Ackerman's three primary "Ackermansions, " filled to the max with horror, science fiction and fantasy memorabilia. This is primarily a photo book with relevant text. As you enter each of the rooms, photos displayed show exactly what fans would see. As you descend down a staircase, photos show what you saw while climbing down that stairwell. The book is printed on extra thick white opaque stock that makes the photo reproductions POP.

For fans, not only of Forry Ackerman, but for fans of his memorabilia collection, this is the ultimate collector's guide. The book sells for $35 plus shipping and is ready to ship today. Check out our website to see some examples of the interior design and photos used.

For any Monster Kid who Walks Among Us, HOUSE OF ACKERMAN is essential. We accept all credit cards, money orders and PayPal.

We at Midnight Marquee Press feel very proud to be presenting this labor of love, created by Al Astrella and James Greene.

Thanks for the HEAD's up, Max. Have you seen the inside of the book yourself?

My ex-husband already has this shit but it's in Japanese, but still way cool. Good stuff of all Forry's collection and it doesn't even matter that it's in another language 'cos that shit is cool.
