Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus
is a novel written by English author Mary Shelley (1797–1851)
that tells the story of Victor Frankenstein,
a young scientist who creates
a hideous, sapient creature in an unorthodox scientific experiment.
Shelley started writing the story when she was 18,
and the first edition of the novel
was published anonymously in London on 1 January 1818, when she was 20
Her name first appeared on the second edition, published in 1823.
Shelley travelled through Europe in 1814,
journeying along the river Rhine in Germany
with a stop in Gernsheim,
which is 17 kilometres (11 mi) away from Frankenstein Castle,
where, two centuries before, an alchemist was engaged in experiments...
Frankenstein is infused with elements of
the Gothic novel and the Romantic movement.
At the same time, it is an early example of science fiction.
Since the novel's publication,
the name "Frankenstein" has often been used to refer to the monster itself.
This usage is considered erroneous
In the novel, the monster is identified by words such as
"creature", "monster", "daemon", "wretch", "abortion", "fiend" and "it".

My favorite author is Isaac Asimov. I have over 100 of the over 400 books he wrote.
My favorite collections of short stories are I, Robot and The Complete Robot.
My favorite character is Dr. Susan Calvin.
Dr. Susan Calvin is a fictional character appearing in Isaac Asimov's Robot series of science fiction short stories. She was the chief robopsychologist at US Robots and Mechanical Men, Inc., posited as the major manufacturer of robots in the 21st century. She was the main character in many of Asimov's short stories concerning robots, which were later collected in the books I, Robot and The Complete Robot.
Sadly, the film I, Robot (2004) ruined my favorite charter by making her the love interest of Will Smith's character Del Spooner.

Anais from Henry and June (also made into a film)
...And all this does is make me think of more, like I'm just starting to open a treasure chest, stuffed full. I'll think on it and get back to you with something more concrete. : )
