Rest in Peace, James Herbert

Rest In Peace, James Herbert. An expert of crafting pulpy horror, like a British Steven King, with one foot in the gory B-Movie tradition. A master of the macabre, who many have imitated, but never bettered.

69 is no age to pass away, and so soon after the beautiful drama 'The Secret of Crickley Hall', based on his novel, and the massive success he had with 'Ash'. But James Herbert has left behind a legacy of horror, and he will continue to terrify generations to come.

Thank you for the fear!

James Herbert, 1943-2013
