Book 1 in the Blood Poetry Series

Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein continues to haunt each generation. Although the story was written at the cusp of the industrial revolution, it continues to posit important questions about technology and humanity.

In this book, Koji A. Dae uses poetry and tarot to explore some of the deeper questions within the classic Frankenstein archetypes. Join along to find pieces of yourself in the creature, the magician, Mary Shelley, the mother, god, nature, and the lovers.
