US letter-size saddle-stapled Media Magazine. Publisher: Metropolis Publications. Editor: Forrest J Ackerman. One issue, dated October 2026 on the cover; published November 1976.
Subtitled "This is Your Life / Forrest J Ackerman", this one-off autobiographical celebration was reportedly financed in part by James Warren of Warren Publishing, though issued by Ackerman himself. Contributors included Ray Bradbury, Robert Bloch and other long-time friends of Ackerman. The cover is a retouched version of Frank R Paul's artwork for the October 1926 Amazing Stories (hence the punning title) with Ackerman painted into the scene. Copies were sold through the Warren titles for the remaining years of Warren Publishing's existence, and today command relatively high prices. [GSt/DRL]
