RIP Peter. :(

I hadn't heard of Peter before, but then I'm not into horror, dark fantasy, or thrillers. (I tried reading Poe, but it gave me the creeps and kept me from sleeping for a night or two). :(

Some dark fantasy I read but not horror now, he co-authored a book with Steven King a dark fantasy Eyes of the Dragon I think.

"Pratchett’s wackiness collaborates with Gaiman’s morbid humour; the result is a humanist delight to be savoured and read again and again."
