Mark Masek was born and raised in Joliet, Ill., about 40 miles southwest of Chicago. He was always interested in history and Hollywood and, when he moved to the Los Angeles area in 1999, he was able to combine his interests, and wrote "Hollywood Remains to Be Seen: A Guide to the Movie Stars' Final Homes," a detailed history and guidebook to 14 cemeteries in the Los Angeles area, as well as a guide to find the final burial locations of more than 300 entertainment celebrities. He is also a member of the Hollywood Underground, a group of people with the similar interests of finding and documenting the final resting places of celebrities. If they're famous, and they're dead, and they're buried somewhere in the Los Angeles area, he probably knows where to find them.

While I do not have the same depth of familiarity with Hollywood Forever as I do with the Forest Lawn properties, I have been a follower of the park and it's progress over many years. I was heartbroken at the dilapidated condition it had fallen into and watching the work that Tyler Cassity and his staff have done to rescue the cemetery has been so very thrilling. They have made it a place of peace and beauty once again deserving of the many Hollywood stars that made it their final home. Mark's book is an excellent guide to the many, many, MANY points of interest at Hollywood Forever. I recommend it wholeheartedly to devoted fans of departed Hollywood such as myself.
