Shelley started writing the story when she was 18, and the first edition of the novel was published anonymously in London on 1 January 1818, when she was 20. Her name first appeared on the second edition, published in France in 1823.Famously Mary, her lover and future husband Percy Shelley, and Lord Byron decided to have a competition to see who could write the best horror story while staying at Byron’s rented home, Villa Diodati, near the shores of Lake Geneva. After thinking for days, Shelley dreamt about a scientist who created life and was horrified by what he had made; her dream later evolved into the novel’s story. It has had a considerable influence in literature and popular culture and spawned a complete genre of horror stories, films and plays.In 1931, Universal Pictures released Frankenstein: The Man Who Made The Monster directed by James Whale and starring Boris Karloff as the Creature (now “Monster”).  The screenplay was based on Peggy Webling’s stage play Frankenstein which was loosely based on Shelley’s novel. It is here that the Frankenstein as the green-skinned, bolt-headed, mad scientist experiment-gone-wrong took shape, forming the popular culture version that pervaded the 20th century.”Haunted Holly Kai: featuring Frankenstein” will pay tribute to both the original novel and its film adaptations with an outdoor amphitheater for the novel’s presentation and other planned events, and a towering castle featuring a mad scientist lab created by Stranger Nightfire.  Residents are encouraged to explore both the castle and the outdoor areas.  This year’s “Haunted Holly Kai” will open October 21st and remain open through Halloween. About Fantasy Faire RadioSince 2014, Fantasy Faire Radio has been a special event station, sponsored by Radio Riel in its role as Media Partner in Fantasy Faire, the annual celebration of fantasy art, writing, design and creativity that raises money every year in the virtual world of Second Life for the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life, supporting cancer research, caregivers and cancer sufferers all over the world.
