Mary Shelley by tamiart Mary Shelley by tamiart
Mary Shelley began writing her novel Frankenstein when she was only 18 years old. It started one night in Switzerland during a party with her friends, where they challenged each other to write a ghost story. Out of that simple challenge she created one of the most beloved monsters in history.

I remember reading about this only last year, I had no idea this story was simply for a contest between friends, great picture too! She looks sneaky to me... Like she knows how successful what she writes, would turn out!

A woman worth of a lotta repsect. It can be argued that she's one of the most influential writers in all modern history, as the spiritual successors of her Monster are so numerous.

I suspect the Munsters were inspired by her! Was she really left handed? I'm a righty, but I'm just curious.

It can also be argued that the many robots, cyborgs, mutants and other monstrous beings that aim to seek out and confront their creators and/or look for their humanity and a place in "normal" society are spiritual successors of Shelley's monster. Dunno about her handedness, though.
