The editors would like to thank the Calgary Institute for the Humanities, especially Jane Kelley (past Director), Rosemary Ommer (Director), Cindy Atkinson, and most especially Gerry Dyer, whose hard work and endless patience made this book possible. Mario Edwards and Mical Moser also gave invaluable assistance.
The first production of Rose Scollard's Caves of Fancy featured Anne-Marie Herberts as Mary Shelley, Iam Coulter as Claire Clairmont, Vicki Stroich as Fanny Imlay, and Curt McKinstry as the Creature; it was directed by Brian Smith and designed by Gavin Semple. We are grateful to these artists for helping Rose to realize her vision.
