Frankenstein tells the story of an artificial life experiment gone terribly wrong producing a monster. Mary Shelley began writing the story at age 18; it was published when she was 21. 

The actual storyline was conceived during a dream in which Shelley had a conversation with three writer colleagues resulting in a competition to see who could write the best horror story. Frankenstein was born! 

The story is often considered to be the first true science fiction story. 

Frankenstein Factoid: The name "Frankenstein" often refers (incorrectly) to the monster. In the actual manuscript, words such as "monster", "monster", "fiend", "wretch", "vile insect", "daemon", and "it" refer to the monster. Frankenstein is actually the novel's human protagonist.
