Mary Shelley

Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley (1797–1851) was an English novelist, remembered for her 1818 Gothic novel Frankenstein, or, The Modern Prometheus (1818). She was the daughter of writer and philosopher Mary Wollstonecraft, and her name is inextricably linked to that of her husband, the Romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, whose works she was involved with editing. In large part due to writing Frankenstein, but also for the novellas and short stories, including Transformation and The Mortal Immortal, she left behind, Shelley is considered one of the founders of the science-fiction genre.
