James Herbert biography

 

 

James Herbert

( - )

James Herbert, OBE (born 8 April 1943, London [1]) is a best-selling English horror writer who originally worked as the art director of an advertising agency. He is a full-time writer who also designs his own book covers and publicity.

His first two books, The Rats and The Fog, are disaster novels with man-eating Giant Black Rats in the first and an accidentally released chemical weapon in the second. Herbert has written three sequels to The Rats; Lair deals with a second outbreak of the mutants, this time in the countryside around Epping Forest rather than in the first book's London slums; In Domain, one of Herbert's bleakest and most ironic books, a nuclear war means that the rats have become the dominant species in a devastated city. The third sequel, the graphic novel The City, is an adventure set in the post-nuclear future.
