On Order



This work is stitched together using many individual parts. They vary in theme, but all relate to the story of Frankenstein. They consider the untold true story of Frankenstein, Glenn Strange's portrayals of the monster, the portrayals of lesser-known actors, Peter Cushing and his role of Baron (and Dr) Frankenstein, the classic ""Young Frankenstein"" by Mel Brooks and Gene Wilder, the battles between do-gooders and Frankenstein's monster and other horror figures, Frankenstein in cartoons - and much more. Each of the author's 15 essays is prefaced with explanatory notes that place each essay in its historical perspective, comment on its origin content, and where appropriate, supplement the text with new or additional information.
