busters small.jpgIf you’re any kind of genre geek, you know who Bob Burns is. He is the keeper of the Wolfman (and the American Werewolf), the Creature, the Alien Queen, the original King Kong armature, the Time Machine, and a variety of classic movie props. He is also an incredibly knowledgable film historian who’s forgotten more about monster movies than any of us will ever know. Take a look at his website if you don’t believe me.

I’ve had the pleasure to be around Bob on a few occasions, and he’s an absolute gentleman. And if you’ve got Wednesday, May 16th open on your calendar, you can meet the man yourself at Dark Delicacies in Burbank, where he’ll be signing copies of The Ghost Busters: The Complete Series. That’s right, the Saturday morning television show from the 1970s, which starred Larry Storch, Forrest Tucker and Tracy the Gorilla (trained by Bob!).

For those of you in the Los Angeles area who want to meet a Hollywood legend, here’s the info:
