My theme is Creatures in Paranormal Fiction.

O is for Ogre.

This ugly giant feeds on human flesh and is sometimes seen carrying an enormous spiked club. He has tromped through folklore and literature from around the world, typically taking the role of the ultimate slow-witted monster in fairytales.

While I didn't find any adult fiction that has romanticized the ogre, there are children's books with good ogres that have sprung up in the aftermath of Shrek.

Thanks for the visit, J! It's been a fun month so far. I have all the remaining posts drafted, so I expect to finish in style. I can't take much credit for the covers--Etopia Press has wonderful artists--but I love them too! :) TY for the follows!

Sounds like a challenge to come up with a sympathetic adult character!

He isn't exactly the image of a book boyfriend, is he? :)
