Sigh. Another giant, gone.

If you are a science fiction fan -- and I mean a con-going, filk-singing, dress-up-in-costume fan -- then you know about Forry. He was one of the last great holdouts from the Golden Age of the field, a guy who simply loved monsters and movies and rocket ships.

I think sometime very soon I'll pop in a copy of "Five Million Years to Earth", and raise a virtual toast to the man who delighted in the story, and in the society, of science fiction.
