This post took an age to get ready – referencing! an occupational hazard.
So, here are the creatures, monsters, beasts, demons and inter-dimensional beings that inspire my stories.
Big thanks to monsterlegacy.net for their wonderful website. This amazing resource has seriously streamlined my research phase of writing. the narrative, descriptions, interpretations that articulate the science and art behind these creatures is outstanding.
Thanks also to Machine Mean and Angry Scholar. I’ve referenced you guys – hope you don’t mind. And ArtStation – you guys are awesome
In good academic style, referencing is of utmost importance. Here, I try to attribute the appropriate level of ownership to the creature. However, as we sometimes know, the person/people that first created a things aren’t always credited – it’s their employer or client or boss.
Intellectual Property is a minefield.
So, I’ve used Wikipedia and or IMDb to source the information. But, as in all good blogs this one should have a comments section. Let me know if something is incorrect.
I’ve added weblink into the text – for those wanting to read more on the topic. Most of these links will be studio websites, IMDb pages or other wordpress blogs/pages.

This blog will be a type of live library. I’ll update this when necessary and cross reference it when blogging about the creatures in my own stories.
After researching, writing and reading this post I really want to write about each of these creatures. Over the next few posts I’ll describe how each of these creatures have inspired my writings.
