When working in fantasy, you have a ton of monsters to choose from. That’s not counting anything you make up. Still, I wonder if every author has his or her own favorite fantasy monster. That one monster that has to make an appearance in the world at some point even if it’s in a picture or by name.
I use griffins a lot and have made them a mode of transportation in some areas. I love their power and grace as well as the overall look. Something about the griffin is very majestic and I’ve found that I always gravitate toward it. Guess that’s not a very compelling reason.
So, what is your favorite monster and why?
