My thoughts about this and that...
The antagonist that drives the story forward
When authors promote their books, they usually introduce the protagonists (the good guys) in their book descriptions or excerpts.
But without well-written antagonists the the stories would be flat and the protagonists have nothing to fight against.
The antagonists (the bad guys) in books, the ones we love to hate, drive the plot by setting up conflicts, obstacles, and challenges for the protagonist.
Antagonists are present in any genre books.
GBBPub published a magazine that introduces the antagonists in various genre books.
