Who Wrote the Original Frankenstein?

Who wrote the original Frankenstein? Lynda Pratt TLS: "The novel’s textual instability is explored in the impressive introduction to Charles Robinson’s new edition. His honourable aim is not to give us another text of the novel we know – or think we know – but to strip away nearly two centuries of revision and appropriation in order to return to what he describes as the “original” Frankenstein."

Very interesting review/article on the composition of the novel and Percy Shelley's contributions. Link via The Little Professor.
