The Idea Behind Monster Sightings

For the last few years, as I have been working on my book FRANKENSTEIN: A CULTURAL HISTORY (coming from W. W. Norton in October 2007), I have been scanning the cultural horizon for sightings of the monster made by man.

Every day his visage looms. Every day someone refers to Frankenstein or his monster in the daily press. It's a twisted path of references, sometimes fascinating, sometimes silly, always interesting and worthy of note.

That's what I'll do here. Take note. And invite anyone else who comes upon the monster to share their visions and thoughts as well.
