I was unable to make it up there due to previous commitment. So thanks for the photos.

Along with the event there was a special DVD available from the February Three Legends event. Our very own Doug Spaulding edited a nice 40 minute DVD of Ray Harryhausen, Ray Bradbury and Forrest J Ackerman talking about the lives and how the three interacted during 70 plus years of friendship. This is more memorable since that was probably the last time the three will ever be together.
The bookshop this event and Saturday’s, was held at was Mystery and Imagination. They still have a few copies of the DVD available for $14.95 each. If interested email them at Bookfellows, [bookfellows@gowebway.com] To avoid confusion, Mystery and Imagination is the new and used book division while Bookfellows is the high-end collectible division.
I have two caveats about the DVD, my voice can be heard and my back-side can be seen. I apologize for both.

Speaking of last time's, here's a little video of me visiting 4E about a month ago during Open House. He tells the gathered crowd a story of Boris Karloff and one of Ray Bradbury.

He took ill the following week, and this could be his last Open House ever (although we certainly hope not).

Farewell 4E.

Dearest friends: At 11:58 last night, Thursday December 4th Forrest J Ackerman passed away quickly and peacefully. I am struggling to give you this information between bouts of profound grief of the sort that you will all be experiencing at the sight of this news. I will give you more details as I'm able. For now, trust me when I tell you he left us gently, in complete lucidity and with as much dignity as any of us could have wished for our beloved Uncle. Thanks for all of your support. We'll talk again soon.
Love,
Joe Moe

Truly wonderful that Forry Ackerman and Ray Bradbury had the opportunity to spend time together recently. What a long career together, going back to when both were young men. Friends for a lifetime.

I cannot say how honored I was to have been the one who MC'd Uncle Forry's birthday party that was hosted by Mr. B, two weeks ago. Only now has it hit me how lucky I was to have been allowed to help honor a man who has been a part of so many lives and careers.

This must be very difficult for Mr. Bradbury. When friendships have such a long, long history between two people. My hope that Mr. Bradbury would have himself lots of support during this time.

How blessed you, who have been close with Mr. Ackerman over the past several months, should now feel. Death is as miraculous and unexplainable as the moment in which life begins. Those honored to have been on hand for either, or a part of their vibrant or peaceful approach, can say they had a special purpose in things that really matter.

So, we have shared in Mr. Ackerman's love and humor and genius via the posts here, especially as so warmly extended by JKT and Doug Spaulding. Mr. Bradbury must be deeply saddened in ways that few can understand. Please extend our condolences (RB site members) to family and friends of Mr. Ackerman. It may help in some way for them to hear that folks from around the world have had him in their prayers for many weeks and especially now at his passing.

(Doug and JKT, thoughts are sent out to you both sincerely!)

Mr. B has family with him this week, so yes.

RIP, Uncle Forry. We love you and will miss you most terribly, the greatest fan who ever lived. Condolences to his friends and family, and to Ray as well.

I just got off the phone with Dennis McLellan of the LA Times, who tells me the story will appear in tomorrow's newspaper, in case anyone would like to pick up a copy. It's online now.
