The Giant Book Of Frankenstein - Stephen Jones

This particular anthology is very well done, at 3.59. Interestingly the editor has chosen to include the novel Frankenstein at the beginning - whether because of lack of other stories, or public domain freeness or what, not sure, but you can certainly easily reference it to the others by doing this.

David J. Schow continues to impress, too.

It is pretty surprising that something come up with almost on a whim to
provide a diversion has come to be such an important text for two
genres, both horror and science fiction.

Victor Frankenstein's obsession with the creation of life ultimately ends in tragedy and death for those around him.
