Next Meetup

Krampus Party
This year we are breaking with tradition by being sociable and not forcing people to read anything in the run up to Christmas. Instead come and join us and our friends from the Mostly Harmless Book Club to drink, eat and bow down to Krampus. More details on the correct rituals to practice nearer the time.

What we're about

For those who like to face their fears... with books!

We read one weird, wonderful and (crucially) terror-inducing book* a month. Then we meet up in central London to discuss.

If you like:

• Horror

• Dark Fantasy

• Weird Fiction

• Ghost Stories

• Gothic Fiction

• or just generally being scared and/or weirded out of your pants...

...then The Horror Book Club is for you!

Just some quick house rules for meetings:

1. The resurrection of the dead is strictly forbidden

2. No biting

3. It is polite to warn members before summoning spirits, demons or ancient deities

4. All familiars, zombie-slaves and maniacal assistants must wait outside the venue for the duration or the meeting

5. No rampaging

*Either novel, graphic novel or a short story collection.
