Summary
As Victor Frankenstein begins conducting anatomical experiments to reanimate the dead, he at first uses corpses supplied by the coroner. But these specimens prove imperfect for Victor's purposes. Moving his makeshift laboratory to a deserted pottery factory in Limehouse, he makes contact with the Doomsday men -- the resurrectionists -- whose grisly methods put Frankenstein in great danger as he works feveishly to bring life to the terrifying creature that will bear his name for eternity
Summary
When Victor Frankenstein meets Percy Bysshe Shelley at Oxford, the budding scientist and the radical atheist poet become fast friends, united by their interest in the origins of life. With Percy's encouragement, Victor begins his research into electricity -- which in turn leads to the creation of his legendary monster. This inventive reinterpretation of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, written in the language of the early 19th century, incorporates both historical figures (such as Mary Shelley and Lord Byron) and fictional characters. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
