James Herbert , OBE (8th April 1943 - 20th March 2013) R.I.P.
By now many of you will have heard the sad news that James Herbert has passed away. It’s a huge blow, he was one of the best British horror writers of all time and will be sorely missed. I can still remember fondly the first time I read The Rats as a kid which terrified me and got me hooked. To celebrate the life of the late, great James Herbert we’re giving you the chance to win copies of our favourite book of his; The Rats, The Magic Cottage and Ash.
To win all you have to do is send us a short 500 word horror story, the best will win the books and runners up will be published on our site with a chance to be included in a special anthology.
Please email all entries to firstname.lastname@example.org by 1st May 2013.
R.I.P Mr Herbert, horror won’t be the same without you.
