James Herbert’s second sequel to The Rats, Domain, was first published in 1985. Here, the action is taken to a post-World War III London, and with humans living underground in the deserted stations of the Tube, the newly emboldened rats give them serious competition for the right to be at the top of the urban food chain.
The work of James Herbert (1943-2013) is now recognized, thanks largely to the efforts of Ramsey Campbell and Stephen King, as a significant contribution to the field. This is the first time Domain been published in hardcover in the United States, and as such it is a true first edition. This is also the definitive edition, with reproductions (in color) of old hardcover and paperback editions, and illustrations by David Ho and Jason C. Eckhardt.
