Tales and Stories

From the acclaimed author of Frankenstein, Mary Shelley,
‘Tales and Stories’ is a collection of short stories that bring romance and gothic horror together.

This collection of tales is set against a variety of backdrops, from medieval chivalry to wars and revolution, and it ultimately showcases Mary Shelley’s gothic storytelling art.

These short stories are full of passion, peril, and transformation, and will interest readers familiar with the works of Charlotte Brontë and Ann Radcliffe.

Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley was an English novelist, best known for writing the classic gothic novel ‘Frankenstein’ or ‘The Modern Prometheus’ which is considered to be an early example of science fiction.

Mary Shelley’s mother was the feminist activist Mary Wollstonecraft, and her husband Percy Shelley was one of the major English romantic poets. It was during a summer spent in Geneva with Percy Shelley or Lord Byron that Mary Shelley conceived the idea for Frankenstein.
