Mary Shelley Horror Stories
Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley (1797–1851), whose Frankenstein is the foundation of modern SF, fantasy and horror fiction, is celebrated in this new addition to the Gothic Fantasy series. This collection brings together extracts of her novels and short stories, with an emphasis on the supernatural.
Mary was born in London, to her father the writer William Godwin and social campaigner Mary Wollstonecraft, an influential social campaigner who died 11 days after the birth of her daughter. Mary's early life was unconventional and by the age of 16 she eloped with the then-married Percy Bysshe Shelley. Amongst their friends were Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Lord Byron, the latter of whom offered the challenge to Mary to write a ghost story which later became Frankenstein.
