Summary: James Herbert reigned supreme as Britain's undisputed master of horror before his death in March 2013. But his legacy lives on in this fully authorised work, Craig Cabell examines the story behind horror writing's most darkly brilliant mind.For almost 40 years, Herbert was Britain's most popular horror author. With sales of over 50 million copies, he carved a niche in quality bestselling fiction all of his own. Famous for his Rats trilogy and The Fog, he broke away from the cut-and-thrust populist horror novels of the 1970s and 80s to more though-provoking works, featuring the scientific reasoning behind the manifestations of the ghosts and spirits in which he truly believed. Books such as Others, Once...and The Secret of Crickley Hall bear testament to his growth as a writer and his continuing desire to chill his readers.Craig Cabell's exploration into the dark, sinister world of James Herbert is given incredible depth thanks to a series of over a dozen exclusive candid interviews. Drawing striking parallels between Herbert's career and the events of his life, this work sheds light on the personal demons which drove the boy from London's East End to become the pre-eminent horror writer of his generation.Cabell, a friend and confidant of Herbert's until the very end, shares personal correspondence and reminiscences - including one of Herbert's previously unpublished pieces entitles To Ye All - to complete a portrait of one of the most iconic authors of the 20th Century.Prepare to be gripped by the utterly absorbing last chapter in the life of the Master of Chills.
