David Britton is a British author, artist, and publisher. In the 1970s he founded a series of small press magazines of the speculative fiction and horror genres, and in 1976 he co-founded (with Michael Butterworth) the controversial publishing house Savoy Books.


Britton is the creator and script writer of the Lord Horror and Meng and Ecker comics published by Savoy. These characters also appear in a trio of novels written by Britton: Lord Horror (1990), Motherfuckers: The Auschwitz of Oz (1996), and Baptised in the Blood of Millions (2001). The first book, Lord Horror, is the last book to date to be banned in the United Kingdom.

Keith Seward has produced a book looking at the Lord Horror stories called Horror Panegyric which features excerpts as well as a prologue examining the tales.
