I love this idea! As for Frankenstein, I've it done numerous times and read Koontz's version. I think it's time I read the original.

The classics are always the best. I used to have this and Dracula in a two book paperback set. Fantastic reads. Cannot wait to see what's next.

The first version or the rewrite from 1830s? The changes made in the later edition changed the tone? but I would love to win.

It's amazing to me how the story is so terrifying a century after it was penned. Yet another example of a hole in my bookshelf after giving my last copy away!
