YGOR
Publisher : Defining Moments


The Story Behind This Book
The story behind Ygor is a simple one. So simple, in fact, I didn't feel compelled to really work on it for another fifteen years! I was at a friend's house (we were both long-time fans of the old horror movies and such), when in walks this huge black cat. My friend says, "Oh, that's Ygor." Of course, that is a character immediately recognized by his name as the famous, deformed lab assistant known for helping Dr. Frankenstein in various movies, television shows, novels and comic books. Upon hearing the cat's name, I realized this was a character whose story had never really been told. Almost as suddenly, I had the whole thing worked out in my head: what kind of person this was, how he grew up, the neglect and abuses, even the ending. I always knew I could do something with it, but it was many years before I sat down and typed out that first paragraph, "The cold does not bother me the way it does most people. I believe it is because I am part animal"

Midwest Book Review(Oregon, WI USA) - See all my reviews

Why would anyone follow Dr. Frankenstein through his insane experiments? "Ygor" takes a look at the man who stood behind the evil genius and helped him finish his work. An in-depth portrayal of the character, "Ygor" breathes life and soul into the man who has become an icon for the mad genius' sidekick. An intriguing and original retelling of Mary Shelley's infamous horror novel, "Ygor"is well worth the read.
