    Summary

    “What are you doing?”

    Percy Shelley didn’t look up from the thick book he was thumbing through. “What’s it look like?”

    Lord Byron hummed, and leaned on the wall above where Percy was lounging in a window seat, reading by the watery daylight. “Can I distract you?”

    Summary

    I am not worthy, he writes in the dark of his room, Percy’s head on Mary’s chest, his body curled around hers like a cat. I am not worthy, he writes, and if this is not the wrong type of love, he does not know what is.

    Summary

    Mary Shelley recounts to a friend the events of the summer of 1816, spent near Lake Geneva with her husband and Lord Byron - and Lady Darla and her husband. In our world Byron and Polidori effectively invented the modern vampire story while Mary was writing the first draft of Frankenstein. There could well have been more direct inspiration for the vampire tale, though.
