Villains are all well and good but nothing tickles my fancy more than an original monster for our heroes to fight off. I hope you’re all doing well this Halloween season and have your costumes prepped and ready to go. Whilst I’m not much of a Halloween goer myself (being, well, not American) you can’t deny any excuse to carve faces into pumpkins isn’t a good one!
Nothing beats an adorable abomination. I positively cackle with delight when an author throws me a character who sits happily in the grey area – the area of the CONFUSED FEELINGS – the space between good and evil but also mostly in evil. And do I have a list and a half of these bad boys.
