Twelfth Planet Press Presents: Frankenstein Meets Mother of Invention in this regendered reading of a SFF classic.



Welcome to Frankentastic, a regendered reading of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein by Tansy Rayner Roberts.


This podcast was a stretch goal for the Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for Mother of Invention, a fantastic anthology of science fiction, artificial intelligence, feminist robots and more. Mother of Invention will be coming from Twelfth Planet Press in 2018.


Meanwhile, make a cup of something hot, sit back in your futuristic space chair, and enjoy a classic read with a 21st century twist. Because, yes, the mother of science fiction was a teenage girl stuck in a lake house, inventing a genre to win a game against her trashy boyfriend and his terrible friends…


THIS WEEK: Roberta sets off on a dangerous arctic mission, and agonises over her lack of a best friend. Come on, Roberta, the universe isn’t going to send you a new BFF on a random floating iceberg… oh, wait.
