Six years ago, Selena Chambers turned her first major trip abroad into a literary scavenger hunt of Mary Shelley’s FRANKENSTEIN. Visiting Geneva, Switzerland, Ingolstadt, Germany, and Chamonix, France over a series of several days, she found within the nooks and crannies of these modern European towns the residual Romanticism that inspired the teenage Mary Shelley and shaped her most famous novel. This special limited edition chapbook collects this Best of the Net nominated travelogue to commemorate the bicentennial of Frankenstein’s conception on June 18, 1816. Written in the epistolary vein as Mary Wollstonecraft and Mary Shelley, these letters portray Chambers’ visits to three of the most important sites within literature and takes us all on a journey through the sublime.
