The man credited with coining the term "sci-fi" passed away in December. Science fiction writer and literary agent Forrest Ackerman spent much of his 92 years collecting science fiction and horror novels, posters, costumes and film props. His collection is up for auction this spring. Items include a signed, first-edition copy of Mary Shelley's novel, Frankenstein, and the ring that actor Bela Lugosi wore in the 1931 horror classic, Dracula.
