RIP James Herbert

A hastily constructed post for tonight and I’d rather have not done be doing it under such sad circumstances. British master of horror fiction, James Herbert, has died at the age of 69.

Obituary.

I have read most of his work and still prefer him to Stephen King. Here is his full bibliography.

The Rats (1974)
The Fog (1975)
The Survivor (1976)
Fluke (1977)
The Spear (1978)
Lair (1979)
The Dark (1980)
The Jonah (1981)
Shrine (1983)
Domain (1984)
Moon (1985)
The Magic Cottage (1986)
Sepulchre (1987)
Haunted (1988)
Creed (1990)
Portent (1992)
The City (1993) – Graphic Novel
The Ghosts of Sleath (1994)
’48 (1996)
Others (1999)
Once (2001)
Nobody True (2003)
The Secret of Crickley Hall (2006)
Ash (2012)

Looking through the list, I realise that his most recent – Ash featuring the protagonist from Haunted and The Ghosts of Sleath – is the only one I have not read (aside from the graphic novel which was a spinoff of The Rats.

RIP James, you will be sorely missed.
