THE TROOP by Craig Davidson writing as Nick Cutter

Craig Davidson has won the inaugural James Herbert Award for Horror Writing, for his novel THE TROOP. The award commemorates the late horror writer James Herbert, whose daughter said of THE TROOP, “This is the darkest of tales where human evil meets an insatiable force of nature to wreak havoc on kids, a scout troop, no less. What could be better? My father would have chuckled in his chair; his fans will love it. And you’ll never go camping again.

The Troop is a brilliant and terrifying classic that I am proud to champion as the first winner of the James Herbert Award for Horror Writing - it’s now one of my favourite books.” Gallery published the book on February 25, 2014.
