From the creative team of Adam Glass, Olivia Cuartero-Briggs and Hayden Sherman comes a new spin on famed horror novelist Mary Shelley: Monster Hunter, via AfterShock.

The begging question is how could a 20-year-old aspiring writer pen the most-famous horror novel of all-time. The answer, according to Glass, is that she lived it! The series will stem from the discovery of secret memoirs from Shelley and tells the story of monsters, which are real.

“I’m excited for everyone to see who Mary really was,” Glass said. “Olivia and I did extensive research on the ‘mother of modern horror’ and she was way ahead of her time, a true feminist pioneer.”

The series will follow the publisher’s announcement in providing fans with a ‘dangerous reading’ experience in 2019, as well as the unveiling of Oberon, a new series that will offer a brand-new and original spin on Shakespeare.

  1. This is a very interesting story. I’m not a horror fan. But at one time I reviewed all the films about poltergeists. Maybe it was after watching so many horror films that I lost the desire to watch them again. To be honest, I’m scared to read horror books, because when I watch a movie I don’t need to think out the story or invent a sequel. It is enough to wait a couple of minutes, and everything will turn out by itself. And when reading a book, I fantasize a lot, draw a picture in my head. It scares me. It seems to me that after such a reading, I will sleep very badly!
