Frankenstein or The Modern Prometheus is my life's book.
You can change several things in your existence; your home, job, football or soccer team (extremely unlikely, but it happens) yet you can't change the book of your life. I'm so in love with this act of creation on the part of my beloved Mary Shelly that I just get jealous by thinking it in different hands.
It has to be mine, mine alone.
Myyy PRECIOUSSS....
Well, setting aside my Gollumite attack, I'm going to tell you what happened with `Frank

Billie Sue Mosiman is one of the most prolific female writers that I know. Her library is immense and she has had her share of awards and nominations. She had to be very confident in her skill to attempt to enter and add to the Shelley mythology. This is no knock off or cheap grab at an established horror icon, this is a continuation of Shelley's story told in a voice that meshes with the original.

The strength of Mosiman's writing is on display here in Frankenstein: Return From The Wasteland. Sh

I cannot review the story without blowing the plot, but I just want to say that left me feeling confirmed in my view of the world. So, instead, I will talk about the writing.

This is a partially epistolary novel, written in the style of the days when epistolary novels were popular. And here is the interesting thing -- I hate epistolary novels of the period, but I liked this story very much. The author is so disciplined that she kept the writing very much consistent with the language and sentiment

I just finished this ebook this morning and WOW!!!!! I was impressed. The author immediately puts you in the mindframe of reading classic literature. I felt like I had found an old hidden gem.
The story picks up 20 years after Frankensteins Monster had disappeared from the world and the main character Robert is in his waning years. He needs to know if the creature is alive or dead and cannot rest until his questions are answered in one form or another.
This book felt like such a natural extensio

Mosiman's Frankenstein hits the mark again in this brilliant tale about the fear, death, obsession and what it means to be human, both the ugly side and the compassionate.

This 10,000 word story will leave you thinking long into the night, and wondering about the definition of life.

Nicely written addition to the Frankenstein story that results in questioning who the real monster is.

Yet another Billie Sue Mosiman book under my belt, yet another five star review. I won't give away any plot, but I suggest reading this (or any of her work). She's amazing!

Let me preface this review with a short caveat: In terms of enjoyment, Mosiman's story scores an easy four- to five-stars. So why then did I give this novelette only three. The answer? Because of the way I'm defining the five-star system:

*One Star: A crime against God and man.
*Two Stars: Poor, or otherwise not ready for publication.
*Three Stars: A solid work worth the money/read.
*Four Stars: A superior, award-worthy achievement.
*Five Stars: A standard setter, a work to stand the test of time, a

I have to begin by saying that I love the original Frankenstein. Being a fan of Billie Sue Mosiman I knew even before I began this book that I would be surprised by her words and once again I was not let down. This novelette captures you imagination from the first page and pulls you into one mans world as he hunts for Dr. Frankenstein's monster to find out once and for all if twenty years after the doctors death if his creation still lives.
This becomes his obsession. Even though he may not live
