Frankenstein – Annotated for scientists, engineers and creators of all kinds front cover

Next year will see the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelly’s classic, Frankenstein; or, the modern Prometheus. To celebrate this, a new edition has been release with annotations aimed at scientists and engineers.

This edition of the podcast includes a classic extract from the book, an interview with David H Guston, one of the editors of the new edition, and the Chemistry World  team discuss why the novel is still relevant today.
