The Woman with the Velvet Necklace (Literature) - TV Tropes
So it turns out a scary story that stuck with me all through my childhood years was just heavily abridged and Bowdlerized version of a French novel by the author of The Three Musketeers. I don't know how I feel about this.

Random Lunacy, macklesufficient:...
but did victor frankenstein actually have a phd
no one’s answered my question
i actually don’t think it’s stated anywhere the text what degree he is working on at university, only that his is attending. however, there is no mention of him graduating and when he first goes to university, it is the first time he is attending, so it’s likely that he is only earning his bachelor’s

Michael Whelan | Illustration Work | Lovecraft's Nightmare A
I'm saddened that, when this work became the cover of a Lovecraft paperback I found, the art was cropped to leave only the least evocative element: the bat-creature in the window. The cropping isn't even centered! Fail, and double fail for being the same art as a Meat Loaf cover!
