I thought this was an interesting article. As an avid reader of horror books and such, I always knew there were something else behind the creativity and inspiration behind certain writers. There is a lot of interesting information behind Mary Shelley. Basically what the article says is that Shelley got the inspiration to write Frankenstein as the moon was shining through her window, during a waking dream. Anyway, here is the article-

It is also strange that the book is set in Ingolstadt Bavaria. The home of the Bavarian Illuminati.
Could there be a link between the two?

They did partake, you are right. Perhaps the waking dream was a result of that little session.

Interesting - I didn't realize that - I suppose it isn't too hard to find a parallel - creating and destroying life...

Mary, having not written anything significant, wrote Frankenstein in response to a challenge of who could write the scariest story.

Which is strange cause if you read it now its more of a sad story than a scary one.

I agree. I don't think I ever cried so hard at the end of a book in all my life. Maybe at the end of Where the Red Fern Grows, but I don't think so. I keep wanting to read it again until I realize that endeavor would entail also reading the ending. Hell, I'm only one woman.
