I read the 1979 edition of this book, and I'd highly recommend it as a 1st-read, prior to getting acquainted with some of the Black Lizard publisher anthologies, "The Big Book of Ghost Stories", book by Otto Penzler and 'The Vampire Archives: The Most Complete Volume of Vampire Tales Ever Published", also edited by Otto Penzler. It's wonderful that fans of what I affectionately call "Gothic" writing have hefty sources to refer to. And the stories themselves are timeless.

last time i read frankenstein was probably 20 years ago. rereading it now, i still love it. this heavily-annotated edition is great for a reread, but i wouldn't recommend it for a first-time reading (too distracting, and too spoilery). i learned a lot more about mary shelley and the context in which the book was written.

also of possible interest is that this edition is based on the original 1818 version of frankenstein. the annotations make note of where the more-widely-read 1831 edition differs significantly.

i have to admit that one of the reasons i like this book so much is that both frankenstein and his creature are so tortured and angsty about the act of creation and about one's own monstrous nature... etc etc. i dig it.

A really good collection of vampire fiction, with a high variety of authors and styles. Definitely a book worth sinking your fangs into!
