About the Author

Smith (b. 1939) was both a bank clerk and a gamekeeper before he settled down to full-time writing in 1975. He is probably still best remembered for his early gruesome horror novels such as The Sucking Pit, The Slime Beast and the best-selling Night of the Crabs, and though most of his sixty or more books are horror fiction, he has produced other material including westerns and, rather surprisingly, film novelizations of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Sleeping Beauty and Song of the South, as well as books for children under the alias Jonathan Guy. He began his writing career selling mystery and horror short stories to the London Mystery Magazine and has long been a devotee of Sherlock Holmes.
