Calling all Monster Girl fans!

Wheezer

GameLit is a recent tag here on SOL, so I'm betting there are older stories out there without the tag.

If you are a fan of cat girls, demon girls, sexy orc chicks, ogresses, etc. and have a favorite SOL story, please list it here. The story does not necessarily have to follow the LitRpg gamer format either - just have monster girls.

This is just for fun.

'The Runesmith Chronicles: Oni and the Farmer' by BluDraygn is developing very nicely. Not Gamelit but definitely monster girls.

I'm reading that. It is what prompted me to start this thread. :)

BTW: There are some very good stories on SOL with alien cat girls. I consider those a completely different character type from monster girls.

Please help those of use for whom 'monster girl' is just words understand this. In your OP you mentioned cat girls are and here you say that 'alien cat girls' aren't. To my mind cat girls in general are pretty alien!

It sounds like Brian in the Dark and SciFurz's stories are out, so do you have some shortish examples with cat girls that match what you're thinking of?

BTW, I definitely consider Medusa in Novus Animus's "Medusa: Fate's Game" to be a monster girl!

I read a cat-girl story on another site 1 or 2 years ago. It was a scifi story about a cat-girl who was fleeing from some highly influential people, ends up a gladiator slave and gets rescued by a secret animal-type society.
There was 1 book finished and the second book was promised but I never found it.

Don't remember the name.

Alien cat girls are just that - an alien species from another planet. Those stories are more in the realm of sci-fi. Monster girls, including cat girls in this instance, are native to the earth the MC lives on. The settings are in the fantasy genre, often sword & sorcery or medieval, although there are some very good ones set in modern times as well.

Not here on SOL but if you Google weavespinner by Fel, you will find the Tarrin Kael series, featuring monster girls or rather monster people.
In addition, Tales of the MU could work, but I greatly disliked the series so I dropped it rather early on

So the girls in the MORPS universe count?

I suppose you may define Monster Girls any way you choose. :)
I certainly am not the final word on the definition. I'm familiar with the MORPS story universe. They don't fit my personal definition, but what do I know?

The hybrid girls would count in my definition, and are considered to be monsters by at least one group that exists in those stories.

Some examples:
Alien cat girls – females of an alien cat-like species: the Kaire (Ka Hmnd), the Hrrubans (Anne McCaffrey), ...
female werecats: Missy the Werecat series (P.G. Allison), ...
other cat girls – either in the fantasy genre or created by genetic manipulation (cat DNA).

Monster girls: my favorite is Taura from Lois McMaster Bujold's story Labyrinth (Miles Vorkosigan as Admiral Naismith on Jackson's Whole)

You missed C.J.Cherryh's Hani (her Chanur books)

IIRC, I never read any other book by C.J.Cherryh than a German translation of "Brothers of Earth" (printed 1979).
Beginning in the early Sixties I maintained a card-index box with an index card for every author I've read, with an one-line entry for the book or story. At the end of the Seventies I added new cards only if I liked the book or story.
I still have the card-index box, but the last entries are from 1981. No entry for C.J.Cherryh. I tried to create something similar on computer, but existing programs didn't satisfy me and often were discontinued after a few years.
I decided to write my own and to to use an object-oriented client/server approach. Bad mistake. It worked only reliable with server app and client app on the same machine. On different machines the connection from client app to server app was unreliable. Longest run was over a month then the client app could no longer connect to the server app. Grrrr. I finally abandoned it.

So I've no records about stories in my books after about 1980. :(

Thanks, but my knowledge almost exclusively comes from the books i've found on Kindle. Monster Girl Harem Adventure is apparently a sub-genre of it's own. The origins of Monster Girls might be found in Japanese Anime & Manga. It is certainly a popular theme there.

The trope is really older than dirt, just look at the mythological basis for the werewolf and you have a monsterboy. Look at various demi-humans in Greek mythology (Medusa, harpies, what have you not) and you see monster girls.
Yes, there are origins in Japan (Kitsune) but it's more of a parallel development

True, but the sub-genre (don't know what else to call it) of sexy Monster Girl fantasy (usually in a harem setting) is relatively recent. Things that go bump in the night go back to our earliest primitive ancestors telling scary stories around the campfires at night.

It has a long time history in Japan along with many other monster/tentacle characters. It seems Japan doesn't know what 'weird' is :D

Would that description fit Goblins' Rise by Satin Slip?

@Wheezer

You mean the part where they only look funny but act like sexdolls without personality any other way? Yes, that shite is rescent.
But for example the Japanese kitsune myth was a seductress from the start
Similarly, Sirens has monstrous characteristic and lured and seduced people as well.
Personally, I prefer my Monstergirls with at least some figurative (hell, even literal) teeth to them, instead of the shite portrayed in popular Japanese manga, simpering and utterly devoted to equally feckless beta-Male protagonist.

I mentioned Japanese Magna/anime as a possible origin or influence of the current type of Monster Girl stories that appear to be growing in popularity - at least based on their increasing appearance on Kindle. I never meant to imply that I like Anime/Magna as I don't. Like I said, the female as a monstrous seductress character type has been around since humans started telling stories to entertain each other. What I started this thread about specifically has been a recent development within the last few years. I do not recall seeing anything specific to the type 5 or 10 years ago. Yes, the usual paranormal witch/succubus/shapeshifter, etc. stories - but those are not the same. Of course, it is not a rigidly defined genre, so there is crossover, and I doubt any amount of debate or discussion will come up with a definition everyone agrees on. For me, The Runesmith Chronicles here on SOL and The Valens Legacy series of books define what I am thinking of when I think of Monster Girls. YMMV

Mamono is another name used for Monster Girls, which may help if you broaden your search to other websites.

Often sexually obsessed and predatory but not mindless.
