I am in love with otherworld creatures, personally, my favorite is still unicorns. I know don’t laugh but they have a special place in my heart that keeps my childhood alive. I am also obsessed with zombies, I could watch movies and read about zombies all day long (friends tease me that it’s because I need a brain :P). Aliens are also on my favorite list, particularly the ones from Alien. What can I say? I like my horror movies.
Angels and demons also hold a special place in the favorite creatures world and have been used by authors like Pia Veleno in the book Fallen. Of course vampires and were-creatures have to be on my favorite list, there is something about them that many of us can’t resist, otherwise they wouldn’t be so popular. I also really like stories of magic. Ranging from witches to fairies the idea of being able to control the elements is…well, magical.
Robots and androids are a favorite but that’s the sci-fi geek inside of me coming out! One overlooked species is the gargoyle. Personally, I would like to see more books about this guardian of the night.
So now it’s your turn, let me know your favorite creatures that go bump in the night?
