Mary Shelley's Frankenstein: Now with Extra Monsters! - Mary Shelley, Marc Laidlaw

Generations of readers have dived eagerly into Mary Shelley's classic Frankenstein, only to look up after several paragraphs, complaining, "This is just a bunch of travel writing. Where are all the monsters?"

No longer!

The culmination of seven years of laborious monster-insertion, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein (Now with Extra Monsters) absolutely guarantees that readers of this classic novel will confront monsters from the very first paragraph, and in each and every paragraph thereafter.

Not a word of that famous original Mary Shelley prose has been removed or tampered with; yet many new words, most of them referring to monsters of some sort, have been added to satisfy the horrific desires of the discerning (yet monster-craving) modern reader.

Each monster has been hand-selected by author and Frankenstein non-expert Marc Laidlaw with an eye to making the text more appealing to other Frankenstein non-experts who only want more monsters in their classic horror novels. From "Modern Prometheus" to "Monster Prometheus," that's probably what they will be calling Frankenstein from now on. Probably.
