James Herbert

by Craig Cabell | 24 June 2013
Category: Literary Biography
The legacy of a master of horror lives on in this fully authorized biography James Herbert was an enduringly popular author whose books sell in the hundreds of thousands across the world and are made into films. He broke away from the cut-and-thrust populist horror novels of the 1970s and 1980s to create more thought-provoking works, featuring the scientific reasoning behind the manifestations of the ghosts and spirits in which he truly believed. Yet despite his worldwide fan base, surprisingly little is known about the man himself. Before his recent death, James Herbert granted his friend and confidant Craig Cabell more than a dozen exclusive candid interviews. The result is an incredibly frank and revealing portrait of one of the giants of contemporary popular fiction, shedding light on his personal demons that drove the boy from London's East End to become the preeminent horror writer of his generation. Cabell shares personal correspondence and reminiscences, including one of Herbert's previously unpublished pieces, entitled To Ye All . In addition to this, James granted the author full access to his photographic archives, making this a title that no James Herbert fan can be without.
