Rewriting Frankenstein

Celebrating the bicentenary of its creation, Rewriting Frankenstein is an interactive exploration of Mary Shelley's novel Frankenstein, created by Neil Jenkins

Using Victor Frankenstein's creation from mismatched body parts as an analogy, here, you recreate the story, word by word, by choosing the next word that might follow from previous words in Shelley's original text.

Completed sentences that are created here are subsequently tweeted from the @Mary_W_Shelley twitter account, which in turn are replied to in the same manner by @Frankenbotstein – an automated twitter bot. You can also tweet directly @Frankenbotstein to elicit a reply.
