This book presents a fascinating overview of the author's life and work, from his childhood in the East End and his successful career in one of London's leading advertising agencies, to his astonishing ascent as the creator of a chilling series of bestsellers from his first novel, The Rats, right through to his latest (at the time this book was published) Portent. Featuring articles, interviews, reviews, quotes, illustrations, memorabilia and a comprehensive bibliography, this in-depth study includes contributions from some of the most respected exponents of the dark fantasy genre, including Stephen King, Clive Barker, Ramsey Campbell, Stephen Gallagher, Neil Gaiman, Stephen Laws and Douglas E Winter. It also brings together for the first time a selection of James Herbert's short stories, non-fiction and artwork. Produced in collaboration with James Herbert himself, and compiled by the World Fantasy Award-winning editor of Fantasy tales, Dark Voices: The Pan Book of Horror and the Best New Horror series, this is an informative and entertaining reference work that will prove indispensable to every horror aficionado and James Herbert fan.
