Introduction: The Publishers of the Standard Novels, in selecting ?Frankenstein? for one of their series, expressed a wish that I should furnish them with some account of the origin of the story. I am the more willing to comply because I shall thus give a general answer to the question, so very frequently asked me ?How I, then a young, girl, came to think of, and to dilate upon, so very hideous an idea?? It is true that I am very averse to bringing myself forward in print; but as my account will only appear as an appendage to a former production, and as it will be confined to such topics as have connection with my authorship alone, I can scarcely accuse myself of a personal intrusion.
