Author’s definition of a monster:
Any creature or human that has an unusual characteristic.
So monster fiction to me is of course zombies, giants, ghosts and anything of that sense but it’s not fantasy. The world doesn’t have to be modern but it has to be close to what we consider everyday life. The main purpose of the monster is to interrupt normal life and force the characters to deal with it. They must cope with this unexpected creature. That is the part I enjoy.
