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!
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.
