Description

"It is true, we shall be monsters, cut off from all the world; but on that account we shall be more attached to one another." Mary Shelley, Frankenstein

Mary Shelley's genre-changing book Frankenstein; or, the Modern Prometheus helped to shape the genres of science fiction and horror, and helped to articulate new forms for women's writing. It also helped us to think about the figure of the outsider, to question medical power, to question ideas of "normal," and to think about what we mean by the word "monster." Derek Newman-Stille has teamed up with Renaissance Press to celebrate Frankenstein's 200th birthday by creating a book that explores Frankenstein stories from new and exciting angles and perspectives.

We Shall Be Monsters: Mary Shelley's Frankenstein Two Centuries On features a broad range of fiction stories by authors from around the world, ranging from direct interactions with Shelley's texts to explorations of the stitched, assembled body and narrative experiments in monstrous creations. We Shall Be Monsters collects explorations of disability, queer and trans identity, and ideas of race and colonialism.

With stories by Day Al-Mohamed, Lena Ng, Ashley Caranto Morford Cait Gordon, JF Garrard, Andrew Wilmot, Evelyn Deshane, D. Simon Turner, Kaitlin Tremblay, Lisa Carreiro Eric Choi & Joseph McGinty, Jennifer Lee Rossman, Randall G. Arnold, Alex Acks, KC Grifant, Halli Lilburn, Kev Harrison, Corey Redekop, Arianna Verbree, Max D. Stanton, Victoria K. Martin, Priya Sridhar, Liam Hogan, Joshua Bartolome
