Mary Shelley's Frankenstein is the famous product of those conversations at the Villa Diodati on Lake Geneva in the summer of 1816. But Polidori, Byron's secretary and physician for those few months, was also to produce a novel. Having witnessed Shelley's strange hallucinatory fit after Byron's reading of Christabel, he used the incident, together with a discarded Byron fragment, to write his own ghost story. The Vampyre, falsely ascribed to Byron, was a considerable success, especially on the continent, but two years after its publication Polidori committed suicide. It is a strange thought that Dracula as well as Frankenstein should come from that single evening at Villa Diodati.
