Monsters in Literature

Today is Hallowe’en so that got me thinking about literary monsters; obvious ones like Frankenstein’s monster and Count Dracula come to mind.  And of course there’s Pennywise from Stephen King’s It.

I found a couple of interesting websites on the topic of monsters in literature. 
Listverse has ranked the top ten “most horrifying of all monsters from literature through the ages”:

A. V. Club ranks 24 literary monsters based on the work of a costume company.  “MorphCostumes decided to rank the scariest monsters in literature in a brand new infographic.  To come up with the final ‘scream score,’ the company looked at a combination of appearance, power, and evil intent”:

But the most interesting article I found is entitled “31 Fairly Obscure Literary Monsters”:

Happy Hallowe’en!!
