SCARdiff 2014: City of Horror Giveaway

SCARdiff is Cardiff's annual expo celebrating all things horror: books, comics, movies, cosplay, the works.

2014′s event is an ALL AGES show, scheduled for Sunday 19th October at a brand new venue, Cardiff Masonic Hall

Zombie Shop have teamed up with the SCARdiff crew to offer a free copy of City of Horror to one lucky horror fan. Book your tickets before 27th June for a chance to win yourself a copy and show your friends once and for all that if the zombies come, you're tripping them first!

Zombie Shop will be demoing a number of Zombie Board, Card and Dice Games at SCARdiff this year.

City of Horror is a backstabbing survival-horror game. A shambling horde is invading the city. The goal is to survive the assault. (Un)fortunately, surviving often means sacrificing some of your fellow players to the undead...

 Each player controls several characters with different abilities; these characters can move to various limited-capacity locations, which they can then barricade and scavenge for items and weapons. Critical situations, such as zombies breaking in and eating a character, are resolved using vote.

 The basic game mechanics are the same as Mall of Horror, but City of Horror differs in both materials and game play in a number of ways: the city map changes each game, twenty characters are included, they can use antidotes (or die if there aren't enough to go around), action cards become more scarce as the game progresses and you can gain points with other stuff than surviving characters...

Early bird tickets for SCARdiff are just £6.66, book your now at

Phil Watts, Zombie Killer

David Allen is a UK paramedic who spends a great deal of his working life trying to bring people back from the dead. Dave and his shift partner have spent countless hours discussing the best places to hole up, how to dispatch zombies and how to survive when… that’s right when, not if, the zombie apocalypse begins!

Phil Watts, Zombie Killer. Available for download on Kindle now.

Allen’s first Zombie novel contains strong language, violence, sexual imagery and some very dark humour aimed at the mature reader. If features zombies, cannibalism, guts, gore, and the demise of a good number of the population of Plymouth.

"Imagine one day you are a paramedic trying to bring people back from the dead, and the next day they are coming back from the dead by themselves, then trying to bite you.

The defibrillator; great for bringing people back from the dead. Not so good for making the dead even more dead.
This is what has happened to Phil Watts. Now he is holed up in a looted superstore, besieged by thousands of zombies.

Knowing he is probably going to die Phil writes his Last Will and Testament although the only possessions he has are the clothes he is wearing, a Glock pistol with two rounds of ammunition and two blow up sex dolls he has promised to rescue.

Phil Watts, Zombie Killer is about how he came to be there, and what happens next."

Phil Watts, Zombie Killer is a scarily plausible, dark humoured and disturbing insight into the minds of real paramedics during a zombie uprising. The measures taken in the book have been discussed, planned and debated on many a night shift.

The measures taken in this book have been discussed, planned and debated on many a night shift.
Phil Watts, Zombie Killer is decidedly adult; Imagine Lock, Stock and 2 Smoking Barrels meets Shaun of the Dead, and contains copious amounts of explicit language, violence and sex with dead people. What more could you ask for?

Phil Watts, Zombie Killer is available to download now on Kindle.

The sequel to Phil Watts, Zombie Killer should be out later this year.
