Monster Fiction Genre – What’s the best definition for the monster genre? Books in the monster fiction genre contain a monster creature in some way, shape, or form. Monster creatures include, but aren’t limited to: zombies, vampires, werewolves, mummies, aliens, and mutants. They can be anything and everything that’s not human, or no longer human, that may act in a instinctual and feral way towards humanity. The monsters can also be “created” as in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.
The monsters in children’s literature aren’t usually the scary versions from adult fiction.
