DESCRIPTION
Genspace is proud to welcomeDavid Guston, editor of the newly publishedFrankenstein: Annotated for Scientists, Engineers, & Creators of All Kindsfor a book signing event.

Mary ShelleysFrankensteinhas endured in the popular imagination for two hundred years. Although the novel is most often discussed in literary-historical termsas a seminal example of romanticism or as a groundbreaking early work of science fictionMary Shelley was keenly aware of contemporary scientific developments & incorporated them into her story. In our era of synthetic biology, artificial intelligence, robotics, & climate engineering, this edition ofFrankensteinwill resonate forcefully for readers with a background or interest in science & engineering, & anyone intrigued by the fundamental questions of creativity & responsibility.

This edition of Frankenstein pairs the original 1818 version of the manuscriptmeticulously line-edited & amended by Charles E. Robinson, one of the worlds preeminent authorities on the textwith annotations & essays by leading scholars exploring the social & ethical aspects of scientific creativity raised by this remarkable story. The result is a unique & accessible edition of one of the most thought-provoking & influential novels ever written.
