"A philosophically insightful and literary tale of terror" —Publishers Weekly
Banished to an isolated rural hospital for killing a fellow student in a duel, Hans Schneider meets the mysterious Dr Lavenza and learns about Frankenstein's prescription—the secret of eternal life. Together, Schneider and Lavenza set out to collect the missing pieces of the formula. But they are not alone. From Germany to Rome, from Rome to Paris, to the failed and wretched Eden of an all-too-human God, a dreadful creature follows in their wake and brings destruction wherever they go.
A unique piece of work; fast, funny, and with a terrific sense of period and place. Frankenstein's Prescription reads like the bastard creation of Jonathan Swift and Jimmy Sangster.
"It is, quite frankly, a brilliant novel, one which takes the old stereotype and fills it with vibrant new life. The story is gripping, with each and every element of the plot fitting into place perfectly"—Peter Tennant, Black Static
"The characters within this book are complex and very well written; Lees does an excellent job of depicting the world and ideals of the early 1900’s" —Matthew Johns, The British Fantasy Society
"The writing style is sharp and descriptive ... The period is realistically described ... Grim and beautifully written" —William Simmons, Hellnotes
"Moody, fast-paced and told with verve, Frankenstein's Prescription has the feeling of vintage Michael Moorcock in a black, Gothic vein" —Julian White, Starburst
