When Lord Byron challenged his friends to write a ghost story, his summons brought forth a mad doctor intent on reanimation and a vampire drunk with bloodlust.
The night modern horror was born was notoriously dark and stormy, as were the lives of those who wrote the most fearsome yet beloved tales in literature, for those so gifted were also cursed. Horrors reveals in gruesome detail how Mary Wollstonecraft, Bram Stoker, Edgar Allan Poe and other masters of the genre were haunted by their monstrous creations.
