Can’t Wait Wednesday : Creatures: The Legacy of Frankenstein by Emma Newman, Tade Thompson, Paul Meloy, Kaaron Warren , Rose Biggin, David Thomas Moore (Editor)

Can't Wait Wednesday

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that was originally created by Breaking the Spine.  Unfortunately Breaking the Spine are no longer hosting so I’m now linking my posts up to Wishful Endings Can’t Wait Wednesday. Don’t forget to stop over, link up and check out what books everyone else is waiting for.  If you want to take part, basically, every Wednesday, we highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  This week my book is : Creatures: The Legacy of Frankenstein.  I admit I’m not usually one to pick up anthologies but, firstly, Frankenstein – need I say more?  Secondly a bunch of great writers writing about monsters in the same vein as Shelley’s classic – take my money.  Thirdly, I loved Monstrous Little Voices and I’m half wondering if this will win me over in the same way.  So, read the synopsis and weep because this sounds amazing:

CreaturesA new anthology bringing together five great new and established writers to explore the world of Mary Shelley’s all-time classic, Frankenstein

“My spirit will sleep in peace; or if it thinks, it will not surely think thus. Farewell.”

Victor Frankenstein was the first to unlock the key to life, but he would not be the last. Through two centuries of scientific enquiry and relentless advancement, five more minds found the secret, and five more creatures were made. Five more stories ended in tragedy.

From the 1840s to the modern day, from the race to publish the first anatomy to the desperate search for weapons to win the Second World War, telling the stories of the creatures that never were.

Due for Publication: October 2018
