The mutant white rat had grown and mated, creating offspring in its own image. They dominated the others, the dark-furred ones, who foraged for food and brought it back to The Lair. Now the dark rats were restless, tormented by a craving they could not satisfy. But the white slug-like thing that ruled them knew. Its two heads weaved to and fro and a stickiness drooled from its mouth as it remembered the taste of human flesh . . . 'Not for the nervous' Daily Mirror

But his legacy lives on in this fully authorised work, Craig Cabell examines the story behind horror writing's most darkly brilliant mind.For almost 40 years, Herbert was Britain's most popular horror author. With sales of over 50 million copies, he carved a niche in quality bestselling fiction all of his own.

Books such as Others, Once...and The Secret of Crickley Hall bear testament to his growth as a writer and his continuing desire to chill his readers.Craig Cabell's exploration into the dark, sinister world of James Herbert is given incredible depth thanks to a series of over a dozen exclusive candid interviews. Drawing striking parallels between Herbert's career and the events of his life, this work sheds light on the personal demons which drove the boy from London's East End to become the pre-eminent horror writer of his generation.Cabell, a friend and confidant of Herbert's until the very end, shares personal correspondence and reminiscences - including one of Herbert's previously unpublished pieces entitles To Ye All - to complete a portrait of one of the most iconic authors of the 20th Century.Prepare to be gripped by the utterly absorbing last chapter in the life of the Master of Chills.

The undisputed king of the psychological horror genre, James Herbert's writing has plundered the darkest depths and exposed the most dreaded secrets of the human mind. Now, for the first time, this completely authorised work exposes the secrets at the heart of the author. Based on over a dozen exclusive interviews with the man himself, there are also contributions from Herbert's friends and acquaintances, including Clive Barker, Peter James and Ingrid Pitt. Drawing out the dramatic parallels between the dark images that have characterised his life and the haunting tales from which he made his name, this book traces his formative years growing up in the East End of London, where he witnessed the swarming vermin that became the basis of his first novel in 1974, The Rats.A close friend and associate of Herbert, Craig Cabell charts he development of Herbert's work throughout his life and outlines the extraordinary comparisons with other practitioners of horror writing. 'In everybody's life story, they are the hero. So if they are made to feel inadequate or a little stupid, then who's the hero? Not me, I'm the bastard. I've upset a lot of people because I just try to get things as right as possible' - James Herbert Utterly Gripping...Totally Absorbing' - The Express

Drogen im Dritten Reich – »dieses Buch ändert das Gesamtbild« (Hans Mommsen) Über Drogen im Dritten Reich ist bislang wenig bekannt. Norman Ohler geht den Tätern von damals buchstäblich unter die Haut und schaut direkt in ihre Blutbahnen hinein. Arisch rein ging es darin nicht zu, sondern chemisch deutsch – und ziemlich toxisch. Wo die Ideologie für Fanatismus und »Endsieg« nicht mehr ausreichte, wurde hemmungslos nachgeholfen, während man offiziell eine strikte Politik der »Rauschgiftbekämpfung« betrieb. Als Deutschland 1940 Frankreich überfiel, standen die Soldaten der Wehrmacht unter 35 Millionen Dosierungen Pervitin. Das Präparat – heute als Crystal Meth bekannt – war damals in jeder Apotheke erhältlich, machte den Blitzkrieg erst möglich und wurde zur Volksdroge im NS-Staat. Auch der vermeintliche Abstinenzler Hitler griff gerne zur pharmakologischen Stimulanz: Als er im Winter 1944 seine letzte Offensive befehligte, kannte er längst keine nüchternen Tage mehr. Schier pausenlos erhielt er von seinem Leibarzt Theo Morell verschiedenste Dopingmittel, dubiose Hormonpräparate und auch harte Drogen gespritzt. Nur so konnte der Diktator seinen Wahn bis zum Schluss aufrechterhalten. Ohler hat bislang gesperrte Materialien ausgewertet, mit Zeitzeugen, Militärhistorikern und Medizinern gesprochen. Entstanden ist ein erschütterndes, faktengenaues Buch. Der totale Rausch wurde von dem bedeutenden Historiker Hans Mommsen begleitet, der das Nachwort beisteuert. Sein Fazit: »Dieses Buch ändert das Gesamtbild.«

Der sehnsüchtig erwartete Abschlussband der erfolgreichen Dancing-Jax-Trilogie lässt keine Horror-Wünsche offen. Stephen-King-like kombiniert Robin Jarvis intelligente Schockelemente mit Fantasy und schafft so eine vor Spannung überbordende Trilogie. Die Saat des Bösen geht auf und es scheint kein Entrinnen für die gleichgeschaltete Menschheit zu geben ... Es scheint hoffnungslos: Dancing Jax, das diabolische Buch, das aus seinen Leser willenlose Kreaturen macht, verleibt sich die Realität immer mehr ein. Der Ismus und sein Gefolge werden gefeiert und verehrt, wohin sie auch kommen. Und nun schreibt der Ismus auch noch an einem weiteren, sehnsüchtig erwarteten Buch. Dahinter steckt eine perfide Absicht - Fighting Pax soll die Macht von Dancing Jax endgültig besiegeln. Können die wenigen, die Widerstand leisten, die Veröffentlichung verhindern und den Bann von Dancing Jax brechen? Oder ist die Menschheit verloren und der Prinz der Dämmerung wird am Ende auferstehen? "Dancing Jax - Finale" ist der letzte Band der Dancing Jax-Trilogie. Die beiden Vorgängertitel lauten "Dancing Jax - Auftakt und "Dancing Jax - Zwischenspiel".

'Rats is vermin, they need to be destroyed - and their fleas too!' The Rookeries, Leicester, 1851. The Irish dominance of recent years has crumbled following the hanging of the depraved Dubh O'Donnell and his henchman. For Head Constable Robert Charters and his fifty Constables and Sergeants of the Leicester Borough Police, the power struggle for a new 'top dog' within the overcrowded, narrow and fetid streets and alleyways has placed them in daily conflict with the ever increasing number of gangs. This is particularly so of the incomers, fresh up from the Rookeries of St Giles, London and their former lair, the Rats' Castle. Open warfare on the streets of Victorian Leicester? Who can bring the struggle to an end and by what means? This is the second book in the series and a further chance to meet Samson Shepherd, John Beddows, Tanky Smith, Black Tommy Haynes and their colleagues in 'The Borough Boys'. This is a novella, and covers events in Victorian Leicester in the year 1851. Two further novellas covering 1852 and 1853 will be available later this year, before the next full novel covering 1854/5 is released. This is a the second story in the series - another tale of England at its worst. A time that meant wealth and greed to many and poverty, illness and death to many more. Industrial towns were attracting thousands of incomers from Ireland and the traditonal county industries, with the expectation of new jobs and better conditions. Leicester went from a stunning medieval town to a dark, sooty, acrid, septic cesspit of industry and its people suffered. Those that became rich moved from the squalor they created and left it to the poorest. Rookeries sprang up where people were crammed into hovels in tiny yards and alleyways, fighting with rats and beasts for what food or water could be scavenged. This was a time of desperation, where the poor had choices. Sadly this often meant death and poverty or a life of crime. Prison and transportation was no worse then the squalor in which they lived and death to some, a blessing in disguise. So, crime was a 'no brainer' and street pads, pick-pockets, robbers, burglars, cheats and prostitutes of all ages and sex, filled the small, narrow streets of the Borough. The real Borough Boys were employed in 1836 after Robert Peel created local police forces. The Leicester Borough Force covered the area of Leicester town, and its county was covered by a County Force. 50 men alone policed the town day and night, for sixteen hours at a time, seven days a week, in extraordinary conditions. These were the pathfinders of modern police, tough and at times as devious as the people they sought to arrest and convict. Rough, drunk - often - but taking on the worst crime could throw at them. Following on from Jack Ketch's Puppets, this is a further tale about the start of the Borough Police, featuring fictional and historical (real) coppers - 'Borough Boys', such as Robert Charters, Tanky Smith and Black Tommy Haynes...who became legends! This is the second book in the series and I would encourage you to take a chance and read it. If you like Police, history, drama, fiction, murder, crime, you will love the series. It has had great reviews and in July the first two books in the series sat in the top 100 Crime mysteries on KDP free books. Of the reviews across the Amazon market place, all are cuirrently 5*. Somebody out there likes them!
