On this episode of Mirage Varla Ventura and I discuss Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley an English novelist, short story writer, dramatist, essayist, biographer, and travel writer, best known for her Gothic novel Frankenstein: or, The Modern Prometheus.


Varla Ventura doesn’t just have the best name in writing, she is also a scholar of the occult, paranormal., and dream theorist. Her favorite holiday is Halloween, and she has written six books with a seventh on the way each about spooky stuff, but that doesn’t mean we just talked ghosts fairies and vampires.

No, we spoke about writing, about being passionate, about working hard and doing what it takes to succeed.

But well yes we did end up speaking at length about Samuel Clemens communicating his last novel from the grave.


Freaking fascinating story from a wonderful guest!
