English Professor Invites Campus Community to Enter the ‘Frankenverse’

Share This:

David Sandner, professor of English, comparative literature and linguistics, is the author of a new book, “His Unburned Heart.” The historically based novella tells the story of how Mary Shelley, author of “Frankenstein,” obtained her husband’s heart after it wouldn’t burn in his funeral pyre. The novella is related to a novel in progress, “The Frankenstein Singularity,” both set in what Sandner calls the “Frankenverse.”

Sandner also released the anthology, “The Afterlife of Frankenstein: Mad Science, Automata and Monsters Inspired by Mary Shelley, 1818-1918,” in November.

Sandner is a member of the Horror Writers Association and the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Association. His recent books include “Philip K. Dick, Essays of the Here and Now,” collecting essays focused on an author whose papers are held in CSUF’s Special Collections, and novelettes “Mingus Fingers” and “Hellhounds.” His novel, “Egyptian Motherlode,” will be published in October.
