Scary weekend produced two horror classics
One weekend almost 200 years ago, a group of friends decided to try to scare the pants off each other by holding their own ghost story contest.
What a contest it was.
Mary Shelly wrote Frankenstein during that weekend, and John Polidori wrote The Vampyre, a short story that charted the course for all future vampire tales.
Robert Morrison is a professor at Queen's University, and the author of The Vampyre And Other Tales Of The Macabre.
