Note: There are several areas where changes are made that are not
usually noted here. One is the informal student help page, where
additions are made in reply to e-mail requests. Another is the
This Week page (a section of the continuation page), which changes
whenever something comes up that doesn't seem to fit yet anywhere
else. When the page changes, whatever was there is moved to the
weekarchive page. Most of the other changes that are not recorded
here are on the about this site and others page. Usually they are
something such as the addition of a new country to the list of the
origins of our visitors. Additions to the browser page are also made
without being recorded here.
A few pages exist at this site that are not listed in any menu. These
are added without being recorded here because they serve our
purpose of developing some ideas or projects with others. When
such pages have served their purpose, they are deleted.

which should be helpful to those with some interest in the origination of
January 21, 2001 we were able to use the FTP for the first time in the week

necessary to create the internet.
October 29, 2000 added link to about this site and others
FRANKENSTEIN : The Dawning and the Passing a Sequel
by Mario Marcel Salas
Frankenstein: The Dawning and the Passing A Sequel
As a reply to the challenge Mary Shelley offers each of her readers, this
is among the most thoughtful and complex. The reader of this sequel will
find that it is not a mere exercise in evocation of horrors before a backdrop
of predictable atmosphere. The scientific and historical foundations are clearly
given the importance they deserve.
October 15, 2000 added link from main page to hate crime page
October 1, 2000 added Frequent Visitor feature - access to a hidden page or two
July 24, 2000 added links to the Seattle Times archives for Sunday,
July 23, 2000 to about site page. It is appropriate to link to this remarkable
testimony at the point that Godwin's view of education has been described
on the continuation page.
July 1, 2000 added a section for suggestions for site development.
June 12, 2000 added a page containing information, observations
and questions about the story of Piso related by Seneca, which
is linked to the Monster Conflict page.
May 19, 2000 added a page for use of those discussing government
and assumptions made about it. Mylan Laboratories, Inc. and its
more than 1,000% price increases is offered with the obvious question,
"If left unregulated, might business in effect become government?"
[Note, links, and offer comments]
April 22, 2000 the first day of the second year of Hail Mary Shelley!
Monster Conflict adds an opportunity to explore human conflict and
perfectibility through discussion of a story now almost two thousand
years old. This exciting feature will also provide a way of including
some of the material that has been in development for some while,
such as Conversations.
Coming soon: the gospels of Mary Shelley and William Godwin
Coming sooner: Conversations on Mary Shelley's notions of the
perfectibility of man.
March 22, 2000 added It is true in response to a new link to this
site from an educational institution, which, like another, implies doubts
about our work here without any specificity. Always glad to answer any
question or criticism, we encourage anyone to join in what Godwin
called the "clash of minds," a process that does not, as the phrase
could be misconstrued to suggest, mean that we are interested in
besting anyone. Rather it is a means by which we may all better ourselves.
e-mail address: ToMMLI@netscape.net
March 20, 2000 added a partial list of countries from which visitors
to the site have come. This list is found in about site.
March 5, 2000 added numerical results for Frankenstein exercise. This
may be of interest to those who have a variety of points of view regarding
Frankenstein. The results are available to those who reach the conclusion
page of the exercise, or here exercise results. We have also made some
changes to the exercise that may make future results more useful. We
welcome any suggestions concerning the exercise from any of our e-mail links.
March 1, 2000 added links for Triangle listeners for Frederick von Steuben.
On Spike Chandler's "Good Morning Gay America" (streamed radio) Roger
Asquith and Tom spoke of the vital part that von Steuben played in the
American struggle for independence and an aspect of the hero's life that
has been ignored until recently. The fact that church authorities considered
von Steuben something of a monster and sought to prosecute him for his
homosexuality, which led to his coming to America, coupled with Mary
Shelley's interest in helping Mary Dods find a situation in which she could
pursue happiness in life with her female partner, are among the number of
connections the von Steuben story has with Frankenstein.
January 29, 2000 added hail Mary Shelley's kitchen door. This
feature is our way of providing a quicker way of returning to the
December 17, 1999 added an asterisk to main page linked to
an explanation of what is meant by the word "monster". We
apologize for any confusion that may have resulted from the
lack of this infomation and have thanked the visitor who pointed
out the problem.
December 13, 1999 moved work space (where we post
responses to some inquiries from students that are too lengthy
for e-mail or that may be of help to others). The work space is
not on a menu yet, as we have not finished planning the site's
student guide, which will help visiting students to find answers
to questions quickly. At present, we refer students to work
space only when necessary.
December 5, 1999 at 7:44 a. m. PST Mary Shelley appeared on
the Hail Mary Shelley home page for the first time, winking every
three seconds. For this dream come true we are indebted to the
kind and generous assistance of one of Mary Shelley's favorite
people, Keith Jewell.
November 9, 1999 added help for making citations to web pages
like ours on the about site page with a handy print version. For the
idea for this we are in debt to Charlotte of the U. K. Here is the link:

advertisement index and Main Page. Genetic engineering or
enginerring fears and whether or not the roots of the problem or
response to an imagined problem was something Shelley created
or merely keyed into is the topic raised by the editor of an
October 17, 1999 added Shelley Chronology and created a link
for it in the Main Menu of the home page. Also added feature
"This Week" to continuation page.
October 9, 1999 added two links from advertisement index to Dana
Ward's excellent pages on Godwin. Also added them to link
Also added link to Jim Walker's site on Luther's book,
On the Jews and Their Lies. While awaiting Mr. Walker's
approval, we heard a discussion with David Duke on Michael
Medved's radio talk show, which provided yet another illustration
of sweeping the unsightly bits of history under the rug and the
problems such accumulation causes. Eventually the rug has
so much under it that those insisting that the concealed material
remain concealed bump their heads on the ceiling. Hence the
ducking. We regretted that Mr. Walker, with his understanding
of such situations, was not part of the discussion. For the next day
or so the link will be found in the index only. We will add it to our
October 7, 1999 added two advertisements from To a Candid World
concerning Martin Luther. [Unintended Viciousness] ["Ich bin's nit! . .]
October 4, 1999 added link to review of Branagh's Mary Shelley's
Frankenstein by Keith R. A. DeCandido and his "detailed shredding"
of the HIGHLANDER: THE SERIES episode "The Modern Prometheus".

names by Keith we just had to add.

added print versions of discussion postings
added Edmund Burke links in TCW index
