"The select bibliography by M.K. Joseph is of benefit to our students."--Dr. Darlene J. Alberts, Ohio Dominican College "This has proved ideal for my Freshman class...compact, inexpensive, clearly printed with margins big enough to scribble in!"--Hilary Kaplan, University of California and Los Angeles "The best general edition of this classic text in terms of text, notes, and general design."--Barry M. Katz, Stanford University "Indispensable for the study of Shelley's Frankenstein."--Eric Rabkin, University of Michigan "Marilyn Butlers introduction was comprehensive and informative and provided a valuable background for my general intro to lit students. The inclusion of the apprndices was also useful and thought-provoking."--Stephanie Wardrop, Colorado State University

Christopher Lee is one of the world's most iconic horror and fantasy actors - coming to prominence with the 1957 film `The Curse of Frankenstein' in which he played Frankenstein's monster. This began a long association with the film studio Hammer - with whom he made a further eleven films including the Transylvanian bloodsucker himself in the 1958 `Dracula', Kharis in `The Mummy' (1959), Sir Henry Baskerville in `The Hound of the Baskervilles' (1959) and Rasputin in `Rasputin, the Mad Monk' (1966). He also starred in two Denis Wheatley films `The Devil Rides Out (1967) and `To the Devil a Daughter' (1976).

Most recently, he has starred in `The Colour of Magic' (2008) `The Golden Compass' (2007), `Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith' (2005) & `Star Wars: Attack of the Clones' (2002) and as Saruman in the recent `The Lord of the Rings' trilogy.
