This was an awesome collection of short stories built around the Frankenstein theme. ( )
  VincentDarlage | Jan 30, 2015 |
Like his other anthologies, Haining takes Frankenstein (and his monster) as a starting point, not a sticky definition. His broad definition gathers robots, golems and even zombies into the fold, providing context and commentary on Mary Shelley's original novel. The contemporary examples and forerunners are especially worth a look.

Book description
The classic tale that many believe is the foundation of the science fiction genre, Frankenstein came out in 1818. The story of a mad scientist who builds a synthetic human out of corpse body parts, it introduces two themes that continue in SF today: The problems caused by unethical science, and the consciousness of synthetic beings.
