Finding Frankenstein: Celebrating 200 Years (1818—2018) In 1818, Mary Shelley published her fictional masterpiece, Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus. This novel introduced us to Victor Frankenstein, a sympathetic visionary obsessed with the act of creation of life. What he wrought sadly betrayed his dreams, being a monster. Without an identity, this creature was pure animal instinct, responding in the manner in which he was addressed, and though his actions were primal in nature, he staggered his way into our hearts and minds as a form of inspiration and admiration. This story has inspired serious and humorous film adaptations, skits, plays, […]

Dear Frankenstein I remember your body as it shook and your stitched-up face Ecstatic and excited as I watched you arise from the grave I listened to your strong heartbeat and felt it all electrified As you gazed into my eyes you looked mysteriously satisfied I held your sewn-on giant hand Small is what I felt compared to you Each time we took a stand We watched the humans walk on by What is this that I have created? A giant of a monster man To hold me close and always so near You never let anyone harm me And […]
“There was none among the myriads of men that existed who would pity or assist me; and should I feel kindness towards my enemies? No: from that moment I declared everlasting war against the species, and, more than all, against him who had formed me, and sent me forth to this insupportable misery.” Audio Track ‘Cursed’ by Anarch: theanarch.bandcamp.com/track/cursed Cursed by Anarch
The first sound I hear when consciousness commences is someone vomiting. A man retches and there is a wet splattering sound against the floor. “If you can’t handle it, you should just leave now,” comes a deep voice, familiar yet unfamiliar. “You know it’s too late and I’m in it too deep,” rasps another man’s voice, out of breath.

I try to open my eyes but find them […]
