Frankenstein Dreams

A Connoisseur's Collection of Victorian Science Fiction
Written by Michael Sims | Narrated by Tim Campbell
Long before Dune or Hyperion, Victorian authors were imagining what effects science and technology would have on our future. This anthology of stories collects works by classic authors such as Jules Verne, H. G. Wells, Mary Shelley, Arthur Conan Doyle, Edgar Allan Poe, and more! “Even the most devoted science fiction reader will find unfamiliar treats in this assemblage of foundational fiction” (Publishers Weekly).


Long before 1984, Star Wars, or The Hunger Games, Victorian authors imagined a future where new science and technologies reshaped the world and universe they knew. The great themes of modern science fiction showed up surprisingly early: space and time travel, dystopian societies, even dangerously independent machines, all inspiring the speculative fiction of the Victorian era.

In Frankenstein Dreams, Michael Sims has gathered many of the very finest stories, some by classic writers such as Jules Verne, Mary Shelley, and H.G. Wells, but many that will surprise general readers. Dark visions of the human psyche emerge in Thomas Wentworth Higginson’s “The Monarch of Dreams,” while Mary E. Wilkins Freeman provides a glimpse of “the fifth dimension” in her provocative tale “The Hall Bedroom.’

With contributions by Edgar Allan Poe, Alice Fuller, Rudyard Kipling, Thomas Hardy, Arthur Conan Doyle, and many others, each introduced by Michael Sims, whose elegant introduction provides valuable literary and historical context, Frankenstein Dreams is a treasure trove of stories known and rediscovered.
