RIP.....James Herbert.

James Herbert, one of the UK's most popular novelists and writer of bestselling horror books including The Rats, The Fog and The Survivor, has died at his home in Sussex aged 69.

His publisher, Pan Macmillan, said Herbert, author of 23 novels published in 34 languages that sold more than 54m copies worldwide, died peacefully in his bed.*t. There goes one of my favourite horror writers.

Damn. I recently re-read a load of his books. RIP.

I don't think he had a lot of success outside the UK, but a lot of his books are well worth a read.
