With sixteen bestselling novels and worldwide sales of well over 26 million copies, James Herbert is undeniably one of the world's most popular writers of horror fiction. James Herbert: By Horror Haunted 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, 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 close 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, James Herbert: By Horror Haunted is an informative and entertaining reference work that will prove indispensable to every horror aficionado and James Herbert fan.

Reviews

"A lavish celebration of a best-selling writer whose works have helped change the course of modern horror fiction . . . beautifully designed, embellished with margin glosses and a comprehensive working bibliography, this is a fine tribute to one of our more underrated and neglected authors."
—Stefan Dziemianowicz,
Necrofile Issue 7, Winter 1993

"Stephen Jones has assembled a wonderfully varied mix of material and innovative layout. In the process, he has endowed a gripping life to what could have been a pedestrian hodge podge. It's a must for Herbert fans and even if you're not among them, you'll find this volume hard to put down."
ERG Quarterly #120, January 1993

"It's hard to imagine a better tribute/working reference. It you've any interest in Herbert, or the horror field generally, you'll want a copy."
—Stan Nicholls,
The Dark Side, December 1992

"A fascinating glimpse into the mind of a man who single-handedly revived the horror genre with the publication of his first novel, The Rats . . . For Herbert fans this book is a must."
Guernsey Evening News, December 12, 1992

"While this compendium will appeal mainly to fans, there is plenty for the casual reader to enjoy as well.'
—Steve Harrison
Daily Post, December 3, 1992

"A fascinating overview of the life and work of James Herbert from award winning author Stephen Jones."
—Antoinette Kent
The News, November 28 1992

"Lavish and superlative career retrospective of Britain's foremost horror writer, James Herbert . . . A fascinating, sumptuously packaged feast for serious fans."
The Northern Echo, November 26, 1992

"A slightly strange but never the less affable book, which deserves a place on any Herbert completist's shelf."
—Chris Monk
Critical Wave Issue 28, November 1992

"An eager encyclopedia of Herbert-dom which should make the pockets itch of horror enthusiasts and the general book buying public alike."
—Gareth James
