GOTT'IM'S MONSTER 1808 is coming-of-age speculative fiction. A New England Gothic recasting of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Gott'im's Monster is part of The God's Cycle and is set in the mountains of Western Maine, 1808. Its fantastic elements sparse in beginning, The God's Cycle moves through its story in time and place with increasing mythic emphasis.
"If I had to reduce a complicated, vivid book to a one-liner, I'd say that Gott'im's Monster is a Maine-grown dialogue with Shelley's Frankenstein, opening up the arc with questions about how and why the irrational can irrupt into what we think of as rational life. The land and the town are as important as the individual characters, setting the reader up for an absorbing read." —Sherwood Smith, author of BLOOD SPIRITS and the Dobrenica series.
