YMMV: James Herbert
  • Designated Hero: Joe Creed of Creed. Lampshaded by the narrator occasionally calling him "our hero" in a tongue-in-cheek manner.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Domain in particular, is nothing but Nightmare Rocket Fuel without any respite for either the characters or the reader.
  • Nausea Fuel/ Squick: Herbert is very, very good at invoking this reaction in the reader.
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped
  • The Woobie: Several. Fluke is one, and so are most of the horribly deformed "patients" of Dr Leonard K Wisbeech that Nick Dismas encounters in Others.
    • Iron Woobie: Nick Dismas, the protagonist of Others. In his previous incarnation he was a borderline monster, and he was reincarnated as a deformed baby in order to redeem himself and gain entry to Heaven, but you'd have to have a heart of stone to hear his life story and not feel sorry for him.
