Show Details

Mary Shelley invented science fiction. Ada Lovelace invented computer science. They never met. Isn’t that odd?

Plagued by debts, Victorian society, and Lord Byron, they lived parallel lives that never quite touched. In a silent churchyard they share secrets, scandals, and a sneaking horror that their legacies might not outlive them.

Content Notes

There are no scenes of a sexual nature, but affairs and incest are referenced.

Violence: there is a short sword fight.

Mental health: there are two references to suicide and multiple references to nonspecific “insanity”.
