“`The Frankenstein Meme celebrates the two hundred-year anniversary of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. The digital experiment creates a public, crowd-source, searchable database of literary works  (novels, short stories, plays, and graphic novels) influenced by Mary Shelley’s novel over the last two hundred years.

“`Since 2016, works in the genre of Romanticism, Science Fiction, Horror, and Popular Culture were researched for a search engine,  providing information and context in write ups linked to the database. The site also houses interviews with writers on how their work relate to Shelley, essays on Frankenstein’s influence, creative work, information on key aspects of the database (especially in its relation to Cal State Fullerton), and more.

“`The database is part of a series of events that celebrates Frankenstein during Frankenweek, October 27th-31st on the CSUF campus, such as an Art Show and Special Collections Display in the Atrium Gallery of Pollak Library; and participation in the International Frankenreads event taking place on many campuses around the world.

“`It’s alive… alive!

Until next time>                               “never forget”
