Paradelphia Radio: In Stitches, Ep. 208

During a stormy, windswept Vienna night in the year 1818 a teenage bride with an uncanny interest in science wrote a scary story about a monster pieced together from the body parts of the dead to impress some friends and unknowingly birthed a new genre of writing called science fiction. This week we explore the lasting influence of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and discuss how it has influenced writers like Edgar Allen Poe, Jules Verne and H.G. Wells. Paranews includeds tales of a lawsuit over moon rocks, Roswell for sale, giant megalithic jars and more!!
