Winner of the Mary Shelley Award
Jackie is such a fan of Mary Shelley, a fact which prompted her to submit Freak Museum to Rosebud Magazine for the Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley Award for Imaginative Fiction. Shelley was a woman of talent and illumination at a time when it couldn't fully be appreciated. She loved deeply, lost greatly, and died too young. She wrote many works of probing fiction of course, but her novel Frankenstein; or, the Modern Prometheus is a great introduction if you're not familiar with her work.
