Mary Shelley’s novel tells us that Frankenstein’s Monster is partly made from dead livestock… and evidently the Monster’s wife is mainly assembled from fish. What if the happy couple went to live on their own in South America? Lovecraftian children? What if Nazi scientists discover this after they lose World War 2? Also, how Frankenstein shaped Das Kapital. A serious scientific talk based on textual evidence.
