In all the world, one monster towers over all. This is the nameless creature created by Victor Frankenstein. This is the Thing that should not live… but does!

You've read Mary Shelley's world-famous novel, “Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus” and you've seen the nameless creature created by Victor Frankenstein. But what happened next? THE LEGEND OF FRANKENSTEIN Book II, MONSTER OF THE WORLD, provides that answer.

In the first part of the series, the Monster found a new purpose to live and sought out allies to assist him. Along the way, he also clashed with ghouls, mad scientists, and maniacs. Now, follow the Monster as he continues to search for the knowledge, the means, and the funds necessary to create a mate with which to share the world.

Hunted, haunted, rejected by the society of men, the Monster of Frankenstein forms a partnership with a diabolical doctor. When this partnership fails, he travels from Europe to America, hoping to find the knowledge, the means, and the funds necessary to create a mate with which to share the world. And such secrets as he desires can only be found in HP Lovecraft's city of Arkham! From there, the Monster plunges into the swamps of the Deep South and strikes out for the Wild West, hoping to make a new home for himself…and profit from hunting gun-toting outlaws!

With links to Perry Lake's earlier LEGEND OF DRACULA series, THE LEGEND OF FRANKENSTEIN forms an epic saga of historical horror and sinister schemes in concord with Mary Shelley's original classic. Read MONSTER OF THE WORLD today! Book III coming soon!

About the Author

After seeing Universal’s “House of Frankenstein” at the impressionable age of six, Perry Lake grew up as one of those kids who liked monsters more than superheroes or cowboys. A lifetime resident of Northern California, Lake has published short works of horror fiction in the e-magazine Orion’s Child, including a variation of one of the stories in this book. He has written articles for several magazines over the years, including Fate Magazine and the prestigious Journal of Dracula Studies.

Lake has written and occasionally illustrated numerous independent comic books, including his own Cassiopeia The Witch title and the adult-oriented Demi The Demoness series and several Demi-related titles. He has also contributed to the anthologies, Tales of Fantasy and Fantasy Theater.

An outstanding read. A must-read for any real horror reader. A most original story from the monster's own point of view in English true to the vernacular of the day. I loved the characters, like Madam Boogala and Rashid. But it is the ghouls that really come to un-life in this work. This man has a sick mind... and I love it. There are vivid descriptions of the underworlds of Paris and Egypt that made me think back to my own travels there... and wonder. I was only going to read this book in my spare time, but kept picking it back up until I had somehow finished it. That is how much I liked it. I would definitely recommend this book to any horror reader. I will definitely be reading more works by Perry Lake.
