Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

It was a dark and stormy night when Mary Shelley, "saw--with shut eyes, but acute mental vision. . .the hideous phantasm of a man stretched out, and then, on the working of some powerful engine, show signs of life, and stir with an uneasy, half-vital motion,"* and rose to write Frankenstein.

Now in public domain, Frankenstein is classic literature, and still a great read. If you'd like to read it online in formatted text, (as prepared for you by Dorothy Cady), click the following link.
