A collection of stories from top genre writers which feature the battles of Slayers both past and present. "Into every generation a Slayer is born. One girl in all the world, to find the vampires where they gather and to stop the spread of their evil..." In our time the Chosen One is Buffy Summers. But Buffy is merely one Slayer in an eternal continuum of warriors for the Powers That Be. Others are known to us: The Primal Slayer, who stalked the earth and the forces of darkness in fiercelyguarded solitude. Nikki, the funky hipster whose death at the hands of Spike lent an urban edge to his wardrobe and a bigger bounce to his swagger. Kendra, called when Buffy briefly drowned in her epic contest with The Master before Xander revived her with CPR, and then murdered by Drusilla with her razor-sharp nails. Slayers by nature have a limited life expectancy. It goes with the job description. And for each one who falls another is summoned at once to take her place. Tales of the Slayer Volume One tells of past Slayers in various times and places from ancient Greece to revolution-era France, and from Hungary in the days of the blood-soaked countess Elizabeth Bathory to the decadent Munich of the 1920s. Each has a personal history, a shared moral code, and a commitment to conquer evil, regardless of the cost. Contributing authors include Nancy Holder, Mel Odom, Yvonne Navarro, Christie Golden, Doranna Durgin and Greg Rucka.
