The Vampyre and Other Tales of the Macabre
The Vampyre and Other Tales of the Macabre | John Polidori
3 posts | 10 read | 7 to read
`The Vampyre' was first published in 1819 in the London New Monthly Magazine. The present volume - a companion to Tales of Terror from Blackwood's Magazine in World's Classics - selects thirteen other tales of the macabre first published in the leading London and Dublin magazines between 1819 and 1838. It includes Edward Bulwer's chilling account of the doppelganger, Letitia Landon's elegant reworking of the Gothic romance, William Carleton's terrifying description of an actual lynching, and James Hogg's ghoulish exploitation of the cholera epidemic of 1831-2.

I haven‘t read this short story collection yet, but it contains Vampyre by John William Polidori that was spurred from the same contest that produced Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. The story was published without Polidori‘s permission and credit was given to Lord Byron. Despite efforts by both men, the story continued to be credited to Bryon.
