    Default Just heard....RIP James Herbert

    on facebook, that James Herbert has passed away. What sad news. I read him as much as King when I was younger... I always thought he was like King, but with sexy bits. Sad news.

    That's a shame. I remember reading The Spear as a teenager.

    To be honest, I had never heard of him before your post. I see Amazon has his books available for Kindle and I am intrigued. Which one would you recommend I read first, mustangclaire?

    That's sad news. I've read The Fog and The Rats, the latter has been on my to be re-read list for some time.
    His style of storytelling was quite straightforward, also Stephen King commented something about it on his Danse Macabre.

    I've read a lot of his works (mainly his earlier ones) and really enjoyed them. I'm sad that he's gone now.
