As I said, my love for the horror genre continues to this day. I still collect horror-themed items – especially relating to vampires – but have become more selective during my adult life. I thought it might be fun to dig up some memorabilia I had stashed away.
In Part 1, I mentioned having my picture in one issue of Famous Monsters of Filmland. When I was around 12 or 13 I got to talk to the editor, Forrest J. Ackerman. (My Dad set-up the phone call.) What a treat that was! I found correspondence from “Forry” in my stash:
Over the last 20+ years I have stockpiled a few dolls that will be housed in a fancy display case (whenever I get around to buying one).
Given I’m particularly fond of vampires, it will come as no surprise that I was a huge fan of Kindred: The Embraced when it aired in 1996. I have it on VHS, but the complete series has finally been released as a set of DVD’s.
Speaking of DVD’s, I’ve got a modest collection of horror-related flicks.
In Part 3, I’ll take you on a tour of my living space(s)
where my most cherished items are displayed year-round.
(Black cats, skulls, gargoyles, and vampires abound…)
