Today is the anniversary of the death in 1851 at the age of 53 of Mary Shelley, author of Frankenstein. I have read the book a couple of times, and it is available online here. Edison Studios made a 1910 film short that tells the story well and can be viewed online. It was made into a well-beloved film in 1931, starring Boris Karloff as The Monster.
