Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus (or simply, Frankenstein for short), is a novel written by English author Mary Shelley (1797-1851) that tells the story of Victor Frankenstein, a young scientist who creates a grotesque but 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 in 1818, when she was 20. Her name first appeared on the second edition, published in France in 1823.
The Gutenberg text-version of Frankenstein was used for an Algolit residency and creation in the framework of Mad scientist Festival in 2016. The text stayed as a dummy text to quickly try out scripts in a literary context.
