The Best of This Dark Endeavor by Kenneth Oppel

Today marks not only Halloween — but the end of our month-long feature on This Dark Endeavor by Kenneth Oppel. But before we bid farewell to this fabulous book, here’s a look back at the highlights:

This Dark Endeavor: Frankenstein-Inspired Writing Contest

Our writing contest is open through midnight (PT) tonight — and at last check, there were very few entries, so that means you have very good odds of winning!

For this contest, we invited you to write your own short story inspired by Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. It can be a prequel, a sequel, an alternate ending, or maybe a missing scene from the original book.

Up to FIVE winners will receive a copy of This Dark Endeavor, courtesy of Simon & Schuster. See complete rules & details here!
