4. Bradbury Backs Ackerman
Legendary SF author Ray Bradbury testified for his former literary agent  Forrest J. Ackerman, who is suing a former colleague, according to the Los Angeles Times. Ackerman is suing his former business associate Ray Ferry over the rights to the stage name "Dr. Acula." On May 1, Bradbury, 80, took the stand in Los Angeles on Ackerman's behalf. "How do you pronounce it, derrr-Acula, or Dr. Acula?" Bradbury testified, according to the Times. "It's been a running joke ... I would say [for] 60 years." Ackerman is known in Los Angeles for his massive "Ackermansion" house, which is filled with horror and SF movie memorabilia. Ackerman claims that he coined the pseudonym and further alleges that Ferry fraudulently induced him to sign a contract that would allow Ferry to buy millions of dollars worth of his assets for $1. Ferry, publisher of Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine, claims that he owns the rights to the "Dr. Acula" trademark, the Times reported.

Check out Phantom Bookshop's
Edgar Rice Burroughs' Web Site.
http://www.edgarriceburroughs.com/
"Here we will attempt to present the life and works of the most gifted imaginative author in American history, who virtually has influenced every science fiction and fantasy author this country has produced. His influence is still felt to this day with his creations such as "Tarzan of The Apes," "John Carter of Mars," "Carson Napier of Venus," "David Innes of Pellucidar," and many other notable characters such as Billy Byrne  and David Innes. All these characters have had, to some extent, an influence on American literature.  Due to the magnitude and prolific writing of this author, this site will be undergoing a constant evolution."
