DESCRIPTION:

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; or, The Modern Prometheus 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. The first edition was published anonymously in London in 1818. Shelley’s name appears on the second edition, published in France in 1823.
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.

DESCRIPTION:

"A twisted masterpiece."

From a shadowy realm not far from our own, dark beings have slipped unnoticed into the world.

It started that cold night spent in the woods, all those years ago. Owen and Chloe wakened something, something inside them both. But, for a while at least, they thought they could live normal lives…

Here the blind Guitar Man gives insane advice on the brink between reality and nightmare; eerie clones known as umbriates sneak into the world with murderous intent; and the once-imaginary being called Ozy is gathering strength and followers in his effort to rip through the very fabric of reality with the intent of dominance and darkness.

And only Owen and Chloe can stop him.

A surreal tale of horror and heartbreak, rife with dark oddities, wonderfully realized characters, and terrifying nightmares.

"Bradbury on acid." Greg Gifune, author of The Bleeding Season

"A prodigious talent." Jon Bassoff, author of Corrosion

"[Deininger's] tutelary spirits are Barker and Lynch, Carpenter and Cronenberg" Peter Tennant, Black Static Magazine
