Basically, the story goes like this:
Heidi Saha's dad was in the publishing business - specifically genre stuff like science fiction. Subsequently, young Heidi was taken to all the conventions and got to meet all the big names like Arthur C. Clarke at a very young age.
At the age of 14, she came to a convention dressed in a skimpy Vampirella costume. In the costume contest, she came in third and was booed by the crowd because everyone knew she was up there because of daddy's connections and to promote Forrest J. Ackerman's Vampirella character.
To those who don't know who Forrest J. Ackerman is, he is the King of all Fanboys. Famous Monsters of Filmland and a host of other genre mags owe their existence to the one and only FJA. What made him such a success was that no one was more of a fan of monsters and sci-fi than Forrest himself.
Anyway, at some point prior to this convention, FJA was smitten by the young (and I do mean young) Heidi. Suddenly, there were ads in all of his magazines declaring the arrival of Heidi Saha, and she was to have her very own Ackerman magazine devoted entirely to her. Very odd.
The magazine was released, but was quickly pulled off the shelves for some unknown reason. Rumor spread that FJA had put nude pictures of this minor in the magazine, but no one could get a hold of a copy to verify the claims. The magazine quickly became a thing of legend among young nerds and old pervs. As all urban legends go, the story became embellished over the years. Pretend you're a 13 year old boy with hormones raging - you can imagine the avenue the urban legend took: it was rumored to contain porn, pictures of FJA and her in the act, etc.
Then, we entered the digital age. The magazine was finally scanned and posted on the internets. The infamous magazine turned out to be just a bunch of boring, harmless black and white photos of Heidi. More like a family photo album - a far cry from decadent smut. Indeed, the only thing disturbing about the mag is Forry's constant gushing over this girl.
The question remains as to why FJA ever put this magazine out to begin with. The theories I've heard are (1) FJA was working with the parents to get Heidi prepped for a movie career; in return, FJA would get publishing assistance from Heidi's publisher dad, (2) FJA felt sorry for Heidi after she was booed at the costume contest, blaming himself for putting her in that position, or (3) FJA really was digging this young chick.
Which is true? I don't know - but I'm sure someone out there has an answer.
"Hobbit forming".... get it? She's reading The Hobbit. HA HA HA (mean spirited sarcastic laugh fades out as the post comes to a close...)
