The event

Peter Laws is an ordained Reverend with a taste for the macabre. He writes a monthly column in The Fortean Times magazine and is the creator of the acclaimed Matt Hunter crime-fiction series, published by Allison and Busby. The latest, Possessed [click to order from Waterstones}, explores the world of murder and demonic possession.


He also wrote the non-fiction book The Frighteners: Why We Love Monsters, Ghosts, Death and Gore [ICON Books, 2018] where he travelled to Transylvania, Rome and across the UK explaining (and defending) the human morbid streak. He is the creator of the ground breaking Creepy Cove Community Church Podcast, a regular 'church service' complete with Gothic hymns, spooky sermons and eerie prayers: all broadcast from a mysterious haunted fishing town where every horror film actually happened. The podcast is a mixture of comedy, drama and non-judgemental spirituality, and has been described as 'Songs of Praise meets Stephen King’. 


He lives in Bedfordshire.
