Quoted from an email originally sent to: David Morgan-Mar

The author writes:

Monsters represent different fears that humanity faces at the time when their legends come into being. Werewolf stories have existed for thousands of years, representing fears of wild animals, nature, and witchcraft. Vampires represent our fears of the dark, of blood, and of charming strangers. Zombies used to represent our fear of magic, but have morphed in the present day to embody fears of pollution and virus-borne disease. Godzilla, created in the 1950s, embodies fear of nuclear weapons. And now we have alien monsters and cyborgs and other things based on our fears of a future dominated by artificial intelligence.

What this says about Blackdrip is left as an exercise for the reader.
