We all have heard of stalkers, but how far back can we go? This time we are in the Victorian Era under a matriarch ruling of a famous queen.

Frankenstein is not the name of the monster but the mad scientist’s name. Do you see his creation as an abomination or a possibility to a second chance?
Mary Shelley Mother Of Science Fiction
Frankenstein’s Monster was written by Mary Shelley, but we already know the story of the novelist that changed the vision of horror, science-fiction and how she opened the door for women coming into the literary world.
