Literary Monsters

Monsters are hardly something new to novels, science fiction or otherwise. Long before monsters became the alpha male, leading men in paranormal romances or the tortured anti-heroes in urban fantasy, the monsters were just that – monsters. They were monstrous beings or creatures who plagued humans, fed upon them or destroyed them no matter what their “intentions” were. Simply put, the monsters were exactly that – monsters. From Grendal to Mr. Hyde, monsters pepper our fiction with danger, intrigue and passion. They preyed on humans, slaying them or taking them prisoner.
