With the sad passing of James Herbert who works have also been adapted for screen – including Fluke, Haunted,The Rats” (filmed as Deadly Eyes) and The Ghosts of Sleath. I’ve reblogged this as he was one of my main influences and will be missed.

The Breathing Dead

James Herbert one of Britains bestselling horror/thriller novelists, who’s books include Haunted, The Rats, The Ghosts of Sleath wrote to me wishing me luck with my writing career prior to Blood Hunger and Dead Pulse. 
 
After a spanning longtime communicado, I met him and his family over a drink – it was the horror icing on the cake for me. Meeting your hero is always neat especially when they are down to earth and exceed your expectations.

Sadly James Herbert passed away March 20th 2013. My thoughts are with his lovely family. A straight up guy and true gentleman. I enjoyed his company, his great eye for marketing and his horror writings. He will be terribly missed.

There was a time that people laughed when I told them I bought things on the internet… I was told that DVD wouldn’t take off, that Blu-ray was no match for HD-DVD and I was signed as a test case for Kindle when some people thought it was used for consuming soup.

That’s just a few examples, but nobody is perfect – I have been wrong about things, Sodastream, those fizzy bubbles just can’t seem to stick and Velcro pants- they seemed like a great idea at the time.

I very rarely endorse, that said, I’m a supporter of Indie film maker David Paul Baker, Classic Horror Campaign the Wales Ape and Monkey Sanctuary.

But I thought it was important I introduce you  to Oxicomics. Oxicomics is a digital platform for comics, they started out of the love for comics. As you may know back before the iPad, digital comics started out as apps for iPhone – which injected new life into comics, allowing seasoned readers and a whole new generation of comic lovers to enjoy on a different medium.

I was lucky enough to be in contact with Morten F. Thomsen and to be a part of Oxicomics launch this year and the comic adaptation of my novel Blood Hunger was hosted by Oxicomics.
