Happy Birthday, Mary Shelley!

Happy birthday, Mary Shelley! She combined great storytelling with social critique and created one of the first masterpieces of science fiction. Of course, most of us have read Frankenstein. We've also seen his monster (often usurping the doctor's name) lurch across the screen in various incarnations. Most recently, I enjoyed Nick Dear's stage adaptation of the novel, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller and directed by Danny Boyle.

You can learn more about her life. Also, Science 2.0 has a good article about her.
