Trivia

"The Vampyre", by Dr. John William Polidori, the traveling doctor of Lord Byron, was first published in the April 1, 1819 edition of The New Monthly Magazine. It was first published in book form in 1819. The story was initially misattributed as a work of Lord Byron's. Both Polodori and his friend Lord Byron protested this mistake. See more »

The Reverend should have known about those controversial biblical stories, from his years of study and his daily Scripture readings. Yet he behaved hypocritically toward the library's questionable collection, and then reacts to Dr. Mike's bold spiritual reflection with shock and shame. See more »
