“A beautifully illustrated hardcover keepsake.”
- Jill Lepore, The New Yorker
“A cornucopia of background information. . . . Teachers will be delighted to have this material in one volume. Students will find the notes illuminating. General readers will be fascinated to uncover the many layers behind the writing of Shelley’s novel. . . . Klinger’s edition allows readers to understand the complexities of the novel as well as the difficulties endured by its author. Only then can one be truly inspired by Mary Shelley’s genius and her bravery.”
- Charlotte Gordon, Washington Post
“A gorgeous, compelling, and simply fascinating volume just in time for the 200th anniversary of its source material’s publication. Klinger does not presume to add to the comprehensive body of scholarship on Shelley’s novel; he wants to illuminate the original text itself and showcase how complex and engaging it was―and still is. . . .The resulting volume will find a huge audience in libraries, from amateur scholars to students to genre fans. Klinger has not only given us a useful reference work but he has also reminded us all just how fun Frankenstein still is to just read.”
- Becky Spratford, Booklist, Starred review
“In annotating Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Les Klinger has pulled off the nearly impossible trick of making the original novel as interesting as the phenomena (from the many incarnations of the monster to the field of science fiction) which it spawned. A beautifully illustrated compendium of Frankensteinian facts and information.”
- Neil Gaiman
“With the mind of a mad scientist and the heart of a voluptuary, Leslie S. Klinger has been striding through Sherlock Holmes and masterpieces of Fantastica for years now, illuminating, enlightening, clarifying, and amusing as he went. On the subject of Mary Shelley and Frankenstein, Klinger surrounds and supports the famous novel with a thousand touches of scholarship and wit. He has done us all an immense service.”
- Peter Straub
“What a marvelous book! Klinger's deep research and knowledge of his subject shines through this entertaining and fascinating insight into Mary Shelley, her life and times, and the themes and vast impact of her earth-shaking novel Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus.”
- John Landis
“A stunning one-stop emporium of all things Frankenstein, a standout volume even in the limitless sea of editions of this book.”
- Steve Donoghue, Open Letters Monthly

The Klinger “New Annotated” series is amazing and I highly recommend them. I’ve had the Dracula and Lovecraft ones for years, and I want to get the Sherlock Holmes books soon.
This Frankenstein has the same excellent craftsmanship—beautiful acid-free paper, high-quality printing, durable binding—as the others, and beautiful illustrations, copious useful notes, extensively researched introductions and appendices. I can’t recommend it highly enough to any scholar. And I would even recommend it to a casual reader. The price is shockingly low, considering what you get.
