Beasts can take a speculative fiction story from good to great. They come in all shapes and forms: alien, robot, rogue computer, vampires, rabid dogs, vampires, etc...
Here are some of my favorites:
- Aliens always pique my interest, especially those in Stargate and Dr. Who
- Mbwun in Relic, one of my favorite books
- T. Rex in Jurassic Park
- Sharks stuck in a SharkNado
- Big Foot
A beast needs to
- steal the show
- have some mystery
- add to the suspense
- be a big part of the plot
- be a star
What beasts make you all tingly?
