    The Poet and the Vampyre,' by Andrew McConnell Stott

    One of literary history’s legendary events really did happen on a dark and stormy night. While the “rain descended in sheets” on Lac Léman (now known as Lake Geneva, Switzerland), western culture’s most famous monster was conceived and the modern vampire first imagined. Andrew McConnell Stott’s “The Poet and the Vampyre” explores the sexual politics (and sexual relations) among the three men — Percy Shelley, Lord Byron and John Polidori — and the two women — Mary Godwin (soon to be Mary Shelley) and her stepsister, Claire Clairmont — who sat at a blazing fire telling ghost stories that night in 1816.
