Summary, etc.:
Horror and speculative fiction wouldn't exist without the women who created it. From forgotten visionaries like Margaret "Mad Madge" Cavendish, to literary icons such as Mary Shelley and Shirley Jackson, to modern-era marvels such as Anne Rice and Helen Oyeyemi, women authors have always been at the vanguard of frightening fiction. And their life stories are as intriguing as the novels, short stories, and novellas they crafted. Part biography, part reader's guide, Monster, She Wrote will introduce you to more than a hundred authors and over two hundred of their mysterious and spine-tingling tales. Frankenstein was just the even more terrifying monsters and the women who unleashed them.
