From one of FJA's closest confidants, Joe:
Following a long depressing haul, there is some GOOD NEWS.
All of your cards, letters and well-wishes have really caused Forry to rally! The torrent of love flooding the Ackerminimansion has encouraged Forry to fight for his life. I can't predict how much longer we'll have him
around. A day? A week? A month? Who knows? But I CAN tell you we're ... aking full advantage of this upturn to really encourage Forry to get stronger and hang around a while more. I am actually feeling hopeful he'll make it to his 92nd birthday on Nov. 24th. Please pass this message on
and let everyone know that their tributes, stories and prayers have had a miraculous effect on Forry. We should all continue to support him (and each other) and enjoy his presence as long as we are able...
Thank you all so much!
CHFB NEWS: Word from the Ackermansion is that thanks to all the words of encouragement and remembrance, Forrest J Ackerman, 91, has rallied a bit. He's still quite weak, though, and the situation remains day to day. As
noted, he's been visited by numerous friends, including Jim Warren, John Landis, Rick Baker, Bob and Kathy Burns and Ray Bradbury. Expressions of well wishes can be snail-mailed to his address:

Forry has always been a man happy to see the future... for a while longer! Great to hear.
