Frankenstein The Original 1818 Uncensored Edition Of The Science Fiction Classic by Mary Shelley


Original Title: Frankenstein The Original 1818 Uncensored Edition Of The Science Fiction Classic

This carefully crafted ebook: “Frankenstein (The Original 1818 'Uncensored' Edition of the Science Fiction Classic)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus is the original 1818 'Uncensored' Edition of Frankenstein as first published anonymously in 1818. This original version is much more true to the spirit of the author's original intentions than the heavily revised 1831 edition, edited by Shelley, in part, because of pressure to make the story more conservative. Many scholars prefer the 1818 text to the more common 1831 edition. Frankenstein is a novel written by Mary Shelley about a creature produced by an unorthodox scientific experiment. Shelley started writing the story when she was nineteen, and the novel was published when she was twenty-one. Shelley had travelled in the region of Geneva, where much of the story takes place, and the topics of galvanism and other similar occult ideas were themes of conversation among her companions, particularly her future husband, Percy Shelley. The storyline emerged from a dream. Mary, Percy, Lord Byron, and John Polidori decided to have a competition to see who could write the best horror story. After thinking for weeks about what her possible storyline could be, Shelley dreamt about a scientist who created life and was horrified by what he had made. She then wrote Frankenstein.

Gris Grimly S Frankenstein by Mary Shelley


Original Title: Gris Grimly S Frankenstein

"Grimly enlivens the prose while retaining its power to both frighten and engage sympathy for the monster-creator Victor Frankenstein. This is a richly morose nightmare of a book, a primer for young readers on the pleasures and dangers of decadent languidness."—New York Times Book Review Gris Grimly's Frankenstein is a twisted, fresh, and utterly original full-length, full-color graphic-novel adaptation of Mary Shelley's original text, brought to life by acclaimed illustrator Gris Grimly. The first fully illustrated version to use the original 1818 text, this handsome volume is destined to capture the imagination of those new to the story as well as those who know it well. New York Times bestselling illustrator Gris Grimly has long considered Frankenstein to be one of his chief inspirations. From the bones and flesh of the original, he has cut and stitched Mary Shelley's text to his own artwork, creating something entirely new: a stunningly original remix, both classic and contemporary, sinister and seductive, heart-stopping and heartbreaking.

Frankenstein Third Edition by Mary Shelley


Original Title: Frankenstein Third Edition

D.L. Macdonald and Kathleen Scherf’s edition of Frankenstein has been widely acclaimed as an outstanding edition of the novel—for the general reader and the student as much as for the scholar. The editors use as their copy-text the original 1818 version, and detail in an appendix all of Shelley’s later revisions. They also include a range of contemporary documents that shed light on the historical context from which this unique masterpiece emerged. New to this edition is a discussion of Percy Shelley’s role in contributing to the first draft of the novel. Recent scholarship has provoked considerable interest in the degree to which Percy Shelley contributed to Mary Shelley’s original text, and this edition’s updated introduction discusses this scholarship. A new appendix also includes Lord Byron’s “A Fragment” and John William Polidori’s The Vampyre, works that are engaging in their own right and that also add further insights into the literary context of Frankenstein.

Monster Of The East by Perry Lake


Original Title: Monster Of The East

THE LEGEND OF FRANKENSTEIN continues.... In all the world, one monster towers over all. This is the nameless creature created by Victor Frankenstein. This is the Thing that should not live... but does! You've read Mary Shelley's world-famous novel, "Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus" and you seen the nameless creature created by Victor Frankenstein. But what happened next? THE LEGEND OF FRANKENSTEIN Book III, MONSTER OF THE EAST, provides that answer. In the first two parts of the Trilogy, the Monster found a new purpose to live and sought out allies to assist him. Along the way, he also clashed with ghouls, mad scientists, and maniacs. Now, follow the Monster as he continues to search for the knowledge, the means, and the funds necessary to create a mate with which to share the world. Hunted, haunted, rejected by the society of men, the Monster of Frankenstein forms a partnership with a diabolical doctor. When this partnership fails, he travels from Europe to America, hoping to find the knowledge, the means, and the funds necessary to create a mate with which to share the world. Finding himself at last in old San Francisco, he learns of a strange cult within the back alleys of Chinatown-a cult whose practice of reanimating the dead might equal that of Victor Frankenstein! And then, in an epic-length tale, the Monster of Frankenstein travels across the Pacific to China and Tibet, seeking out this cult of necromancers. Along the way, he clashes with the vampiric Kiang-Shi and a secret society bent on subjugating the world. What follows places the Monster of in the middle of a war between these rival factions! With links to Perry Lake's earlier LEGEND OF DRACULA series, THE LEGEND OF FRANKENSTEIN forms an epic saga of historical horror and sinister schemes in concord with Mary Shelley's original classic. Read MONSTER OF THE EAST today! Book IV coming soon!
