To continue on the subject of monsters and mashes for a moment:
Last Sunday in the Los Angeles Times, Ed Park published his notes on Laurie Sheck’s A Monster’s Notes, which is a novel narrated by none other than Frankenstein’s monster, who is alive and well (um, make that undead and well) in New York City. Then a few days later (on Bloomsday, in fact), Park remixed and mashed up his own notes, creating an entirely new piece. It’s a fun bit of reading.
Now back to covering real-life monsters who have their origins in a prior century.
