9781500659394 | Createspace Independent Pub, July 26, 2014, cover price $7.00 | About this edition: "The Vampyre" was the first vampire story in English prose, and as such had a wide-ranging influence, almost singlehandedly creating the now-popular image of the vampire as an aristocratic seducer.
9781500659547 | Createspace Independent Pub, July 26, 2014, cover price $9.00 | About this edition: The Vampyre is interesting historically because of its portrayal of Lord Ruthven as a mysterious, pale-faced aristocratic figure who preys on innocent young ladies, which is the way many future vampires would be described (vampires of folklore had generally been described as hideous-looking monsters).
9781470054571 | Createspace Independent Pub, February 9, 2012, cover price $12.95 | About this edition: John Polidori's novella 'The Vampyre' had its genesis in the famous 'Year Without a Summer' (1816), when Lord Byron challenged a group of his friends to each write a chilling horror story (Mary Shelley's 'Frankenstein' also emerged from this session).

Four classic tales of the undead, read by Bill Wallis, Anthony Head, John Telfer and Cornelius Garrett.“The Vampyre” sees a young English gentleman accompanying an aristocrat on a tour of Europe. But Aubrey soon discovers that the charming Lord Ruthven is not what he appears to be.In “The Wailing Well,” three boy scouts find more than they bargained for when they search for a haunted well, while “For the Blood is the Life” tells the story of a mysterious mound and a murdered girl’s dreadful vengeance.And in “An Episode of Cathedral History,” the uncovering of a stone tomb unleashes a terrible force of darkness.Evocatively read by three exceptional actors, and with atmospheric music, these bloodcurdling tales are perfect listening for long winter nights.This work is part of Brilliance Audio's extensive Classic Collection, bringing you timeless masterpieces that you and your family are sure to love.
