Frankenstein: Or the Modern Prometheus (Paperback)
2018 marked the 200th anniversary of Shelley’s seminal Gothic-Romantic novel. If you’ve only seen the inarticulate brute from film or television, you’ve never truly experienced the beautiful tragedy that would go on to inspire generations of writers.— Kiyo
Mary Shelley's Frankenstein is both a frightening gothic horror story and a science fiction masterpiece. Most people will be surprised to learn that Frankenstein is actually the very first example of science fiction ever written. As gothic horror it is a cautionary tale of the limits of man and science and reminds us of what happens when mankind moves forward with hubris as its motivating force.
