A Creature of Our Own Making [31 Days of Halloween – October 26]

The novel Frankenstein is many things Рthe birth of science fiction, a study in Romantic philosophy, a Gothic horror story Рbut it is also a reminder that the things that terrorize us most are often a reflection of our own obsessions.


Within the pages of this collection, therefore, readers may consider “science fiction” to be loosely defined as tales of the fantastic that exclude the supernatural — no ghosts, no deities, no magic. What may sound like an arbitrary distinction actually demonstrates separate ways for regarding the cosmos.
