Today in Goth and Horror History: Happy Birthday Mary Shelley

August 30, 1797 - Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley - Author - Born

The author of Frankenstein, thought to be the first science fiction novel. She's a very important role model me and I suspect to many other goths and horror literature aficionados.

Today is also celebrated as National Frankenstein Day.
