The Modern Monster / Six Degrees of SFnal Separation

Back during Sci-Fi Month Imyril from There is Always Room for One More issued us a challenge. The Six Degrees of SFnal Seperation. It is based on the Six Degrees of Seperation meme by Kate over at Books Are My Favourite And Best where she nominates a book and participants see where it leads them.

It is all about the connections between the books that you make. Which is why it took me forever to do this. I’m not sure if I am doing this entirely right but I guess that isn’t even the point. It is about where it leads you. I did end up with 6 connections as flimsy as they are.  Also my first book isn’t quite sci-fi but it fits so well so whatever

Frankenstein
