RIP Mary Shelly

Some of my friends know that I’m a big Shelly fan (Mary, not Percy although I do admire Ozymandias).

Well, children, today is the day she died.

Here’s a good celebratory post about her and the birth of Frankenstein.

No, do not get me started on that I, Frankenstein atrocity. I just…don’t want to think about it.

It’s worth your time to read about Mary and her mother.

As a side note I’ve always thought ‘The Modern Prometheus’ captures the spirit of the tale better than the title ‘Frankenstein’.
