Hideous Progeny

Winner of the British Fantasy Award.

What would the world have become, if Victor Frankenstein’s attempts to conquer death had not gone awry? Would some events of the world we know still have emerged, or would it be completely, and utterly, transfigured?

The very name ‘Frankenstein’ has become a by-word for arrogant tampering with things man was not meant to know. Twenty new stories from today’s masters of macabre explore this theme.

A collection of short fiction, based in an alternate world where Victor Frankenstein’s experiment changed the course of science. (Razorblade Press, 1999).  Includes the story Lips So Tender by Richard Wright

“Hideous Progeny is one monstrously beautiful anthology that explores the world as it would have been if Dr. Victor Frankenstein’s gruesome experiments had not gone awry. Writers such as Tim Lebbon, Peter Crowther, Steven Volk, Steve Rasnic Tem, and Rhys Hughes (to name just a few) each donate a small literary organ to the mix.” – Luis Rodrigues,, 2001
