JOHN ZACHERLE, R.I.P.

Television horror host John  Zacherle died yesterday, one month after his 98th birthday.  Known simply as "Zacherley," he was the gateway for many kids into horror films.  For me and countless others, however, his two anthologies from Ballantine Books, Zacherley's Midnight Snacks  and Zacherley's Vulture Stew (both 1960) were gateway books into horror and fantasy fiction.  Both had excellent stories and still hold up well today.
