Ghostly Tales from the Lost Summer of 1816 - Frankenstein, The Vampyre & Other Stories from the Villa Diodati Mary Shelley, John William Polidori & Lord Byron read online review & book description:

Around two hundred years ago the famous writer Lord Byron rented the mansion known as the Villa Diodati on Lake Geneva. Accompanying Byron, among others, was the 23-year-old poet Percy Shelley, his mistress, Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin, and Byron's physician John William Polidori. The summer would be forever known as the 'Lost Summer of 1816'. For three days they were shut up in the Villa due to cold and stormy weather, which would serve as the backdrop to the telling and writing of horror and ghost stories—the most notable of which was Mary Shelley's “Frankenstein”. 'Ghostly Tales from Lost Summer of 1816' is the collected writings from the guests; including “Frankenstein” by Mary Shelley, “The Vampyre” by John Polidori, and the unfinished tales, “Fragment of a Ghost Story” by Percy Shelley, and “A Fragment of a Novel” by Lord Byron. This collection of tales would make for a worthy addition to the shelves of fans of the horrifying and macabre. This edition includes specially-commissioned biographies of each of the authors.
