Author of such greats as “The Fog”, The Rats”, “The Dark”, “Ash” and “The secrets of Crickley Hall” passed away peacefully in his Sussex Home this morning.
Thoughts go out to his family from all here at DisgustingCo 🙁
A statement from the official James Herbert Facebook page –
We’re very sad to announce the death of bestselling novelist, James Herbert OBE. James, aged 69, died peacefully in his bed this morning at his home in Sussex.
He married his wife, Eileen, in 1967; our thoughts are with her and their three daughters, Kerry, Emma, and Casey.
His Publisher, Jeremy Trevathan, says,
“Jim Herbert was one of the keystone authors in a genre that had its heyday in the 1970s and 1980s. It’s a true testament to his writing and his enduring creativity that his books continued to be huge bestsellers right up until his death. He has the rare distinction that his novels were considered classics of the genre within his lifetime. His death marks the passing of one of the giants of popular fiction in the 20th century.”
