Frankenstein is a Gothic novel written by Mary Shelley (1797 - 1851), which she started writing when she was 18 years old and published anonymously on 1 January 1818. Shelley travelled to Geneva in 1816 with her future husband, Percy Shelley as well as friends Lord Byron and John Polidori. Due to the dismal weather, which left the group shut in their villa, Byron suggested they hold a horror-story writing competition. After several nights of intense thought, Mary Shelley went to bed and dreamt of a young man obsessed with creating life. This led to her writing the horror story which eventually became the novel Frankenstein. Since 500 first edition copies were printed by a small publishing house in London, the novel has never been out of print and has been adapted numerous times for stage and screen. The novel has become so embedded in our culture that the word 'Frankenstein' even appears in the Oxford English Dictionary, defined as 'a thing that becomes terrifying or destructive to its maker.' Eight stamps and a 3D lenticular Miniature Sheet mark the 200th anniversary of the publication of the novel.
