Earphones Award Winner

Horror • 30.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Three distinct voices have always inhabited the world of Frankenstein: that of the story's mannered nineteenth-century narrator; that of the crazed genius scientist; and that of the monster himself. It goes without saying that Mary Shelley's novel (read here in its entirety) has shaped and shaken the imaginations of writers, filmmakers, and audiences since its 1818 publication. Bringing together top voice talents (Derek Perkins, Simon Vance, Stefan Rudnicki, et al.) with a considerable cross-section of pulp and horror authors (Robert Bloch, Michael Marshall Smith, Lisa Morton, and more), this 24-story collection is a wonderful celebration of all things Frankenstein. Naturally, it includes the themes the horror genre has always lived by--the search for immortality, the unnatural creation of life, and a healthy distrust of modern science. Keep the lights on. B.P.
