Staff Pick

Written by an anonymous19-year-old, rejected by two publishers, and finally given a printing of only 500 copies, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein would go on to become one of the most influential novels in the science-fiction and horror genres. But Shelley's work is much more than a Gothic tale of terror; it's a classic piece of literature that raised many disturbing questions about humankind that are just as relevant today as when they were written. On October 31, 1831, Shelley published a revised edition that has become the more widely read version, not because of its textural superiority, but for its availability. In fact, it has been argued that the original text, with its darker undertones, may be the most definitive work. Whichever version you read, Frankenstein is a masterpiece!
