Making the Monster: The Science Behind Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein

Making the Monster Halloween 2018 marks the 200th anniversary of publishing the classic gothic novel, Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, which many consider to be the first true science fiction story.

Making the Monster examines the science and the scientists that influenced Mary Shelley and inspired her famous creation, Victor Frankenstein, to make the sensational discovery of the secret of life.

For all the subsequent interpretations of Frankenstein in the form of plays, films, novels, art works and comic books, this bicentennial birthday beckons us to revisit the original story, where the Frankenstein phenomena began, by reading Making the Monster! It’s quite frightening!!!
