Book Description:
With Mary Shelley's Frankenstein included two tales of terror in one! In this chilling sequel to Mary Shelley's famous tale, Hilary Bailey imagines what might have happened if Frankenstein had created a female companion for his monster. The story begins in 1826 when a wealthy, young man by the name of Jonathan Goodall is introduced to Dr. Frankenstein, now living in London with a wife and small child. Jonathan soon becomes Frankenstein's helper and friend but, when Frankenstein's wife and child are brutally murdered, he becomes entangled in a horrific unfolding of events. Hilary Bailey's gothic prose is constructed with uncanny fidelity to Shelley's original style, as she describes the frightful consequences of Frankenstein's tampering with the laws of nature. Also included is a foreword by the author that describes how Lord Byron and Mary Shelley each agreed to compete and write 'a ghost story' and why Shelley won. 'In this chilling and intelligent sequel to the never forgotten story, Hilary Bailey imagines what might have happened if Frankenstein had made a woman, a bride, for his male creature. Bailey plays on the fear of the monstrous, compassionless woman and also plays with it . . . Icy, atmospheric and riveting.' Observer, UK national Sunday newspaper 'Icily convincing... Hilary bailey lets the implications of a new story look after themselves. Without fashionable recourse to the erotic or the feminist, she is mistress of the melodrama' Mail on Sunday, UK national Sunday newspaper 'Frankenstein's bride makes Frankenstein's monster look like a pussycat.' Sunday Times, UK national Sunday newspaper
