Monsterland (1984-1987)

After Famous Monsters of Filmland ceased publication in 1983, Ackerman was coaxed into briefly resuming his title as editor of a horror-oriented magazine with Forrest J Ackerman's MONSTER LAND (with the official publication title inside as one all-caps word- "MONSTERLAND", and then "Monsterland" from 1986 onward) by Hal Schuster of New Media Publishing, which began publication in December 1984.

After two fill in editorials by Ackerman as "Editor & Chief" (beginning with issue #10 /1986), the cover title Forrest J Ackerman's MONSTER LAND was shortened to MONSTER LAND, and Ackerman's title changed to "Editor Emeritus" (with James Van Hise assigned as "Editor"). Inside that issue, host character "Evila" states that "Forry [had] moved on." After the end of New Media Publishing in 1985, beginning with issue #10 the magazine was published by a new Schuster publishing entity, Movieland Publishing, Inc., until the final issue, #17 (summer 1987).
