Read plenty of his books back in my schooldays. Wasn't a fan in later years, but still a great influence.

I met him at FantasyCon last year - a shy man, who did his signings, bit of a chat and then he left via a patio door of the Conference hotel rather than the front door. Most writers stay for at least one night so as to imbibe the drinks their fans buy all night! Kudos to his dramatic writing skills even though, like you, Del, I'd mainly read his early works.

He didn't look like a well man at the WHC in Brighton, whenever that was. I wasn't a fan of his writing, but plenty liked it, so he must have been doing something right.

R.I.P. Mr Herbert :reaper:
