Past Events

July 14, 2018: Clonsters / Modern Dread Signing

The dynamic duo of Pat and Amy Shand make their triumphant return to East Side Mags with a pair of books that are sure to find their way into any member of the family’s collection!

First up – Modern Dread! It’s a horror anthology of modern anxieties! Fans of horror beware! This book is for you! (This book is also for MATURE audiences!) A 72-page graphic novel in black & white that explores what scares people now!!!

But don’t fear (too much) – we’ve got something for the kids too! Amy Shand is proud to present CLONSTERS – an all-ages book which is a whimsical fantasy adventure. Short for clay monsters, the characters in this book are modeled after mini figures that Amy herself has created in clay form and in the pages of this great kid-friendly book!
