For the Love of Horror, a spine chilling new experience from Monopoly Events

Other Events


Matt Shaw is the published author of over 200 publications. Known primarily for his extreme horror (some titles even banned on Amazon), he has also written in other genres too - including thrillers, romance, children’s stories and even erotica. His work has been translated into German, Korean, French and Japanese as well as being adapted into graphic novels. A number of his books have had their film options secured by various companies and, with regards to films, in January 2018, Shaw completed his feature-length directorial debut with the filming of his number one best-seller MONSTER, co-written with Michael Bray, having successfully funded it via Kickstarter. A regular on the convention run, Shaw can be found on the circuits signing both in America and the United Kingdom.

Matt will be signing books, comics and film posters - as well as bringing a selection of his infamous DeadTeds...

“There is a ferocity about Matt Shaw's writing that is both welcome and also necessary when it comes to horror.” - Shaun Hutson, author of ‘Slugs'

Matt Shaw will be attending For the Love of Horror on both days of the event 20-21 October 2018



Mark Cassell can label himself as author, artist, and actor, but his passion is clearly stamped in the written word. As the author of the best-selling Shadow Fabric Mythos, a series of books about demons, devices and deceit, he has a penchant for ignoring typical horror tropes and hurling them into the void. Although best known for cosmic horror, he also writes steampunk, sci-fi, and dark fantasy. Now a respected name in the horror community, he’s a familiar face on the UK convention scene where you’ll find him selling his books as well as his photographic art. And he always likes to chat.

A pioneer of independent publishing, DAVID MOODY first released HATER in 2006, and without an agent, succeeded in selling the film rights for the novel to Mark Johnson (producer, Breaking Bad) and Guillermo Del Toro (director, The Shape of Water, Pan's Labyrinth). Moody's seminal zombie novel AUTUMN was made into an (admittedly terrible) movie starring Dexter Fletcher and David Carradine. He has a unhealthy fascination with the end of the world and likes to write books about ordinary folks going through absolute hell. With the publication of a new series of Hater stories, Moody is poised to further his reputation as a writer of suspense-laced SF/horror, and "farther out" genre books of all description.
