. . . I've just learned that these two books have glow-in-the-dark covers. :-0 Perhaps it's only on the hardcover versions, but boy, I LOVE the idea. Guess I'm a sucker for gimmicks. ;)
I would like to read "The Lady and Her Monsters: A Tale of Dissections, Real-Life Dr. Frankensteins, and the Creation of Mary Shelley's Masterpiece". However, a criticism of the book is that it has more 'hearsay' than supported annotation, and that doesn't sit well with me. I like my historical accounts with plenty of scholarly back-up (even if it's about re-animated monsters and such).
BUT, I may just buy it (because it glows in the dark).
