Frankenstein Comes to Life in GoWYLD

Aug 30, 2021

Today is Frankenstein Day honoring the birthday of Mary Shelley, author and creator of Frankenstein. Rather than highlight Literature Online or Biography In Context, we thought we’d see if we could find the monster in Rolling Stone Archive.

Rolling Stone Archive is part of ProQuest within the resources. Select ProQuest from the Browse Database by Title. On the main page, select Databases from the navigation bar at the top. Scroll down to select this resource that goes from 2018 back to 1967.

Advertisement with several movie promotion posters.

Ads for movie posters. In 1971, a full-color reproduction of Boris Karloff’s 1931 Frankenstein was $1.49.

Rolling Stone includes reviews of music, film and books, interviews, and commentary on music and popular culture.

Find a review of Andy Warhol’s Frankenstein or the gold single “Frankenstein” from the album They Only Come Out at Night, by The Edgar Winter Group in 1974. Explore more for the 1994 review of R.E.M.’s Monster, or an interview with Stephen King in 2014.

Rolling Stone Archive is available in Proquest, a database. This resource and much more from GoWYLD are available in Wyoming libraries and remotely using your Wyoming library card number and PIN. For more information, contact your library or Chris Van Burgh, Database Instruction Librarian at the Wyoming State Library,
