Topic: James Herbert (1943 - 2013)
James Herbert has passed away today, aged 69. It's a sad day for horror in general and far be it from me to write his obituary but today a massive part of my love for the genre died with him. Don't know if anyone else has ever read 'Rats' but the literary version of Herbert's 'The Fog' is an unforgetable experience. James Herbert was the first horror author I really invested any time in, I'm prolly in the same boat as a thousand other English boys in being shocked by the infamous P.E lesson scene fom 'The Fog'. It's a wonderful and terrifying short story.
All apologies if I'm putting this in the wrong section but James Herbert was an absolute horror legend.
The genre took a massive loss today.
R.I.P James Herbert.
