Buffy may be the vampire slayer for our time, but she is merely one in an eternal continuum of warriors for the Powers That Be. This collection of stories tells of past Slayers in various times and places. Each has a personal history and a shared moral code.
"Into every generation, a Slayer is born. One girl in all the world, to find the vampires where they gather, and to stop their evil and the swell of their numbers..." Joss Whedon's now legendary introduction to the world of Buffy the Vampire Slayer created a mythology all of its own, a mythology which is now as much as part of the popular cultural landscape as Dracula himself. Buffy Summers is its archetype -- but before Buffy there were countless other Slayers, just as there will be many after her. In TALES OF THE SLAYER top genre authors and writers from the television show conjure the lives and deaths of Slayers past and future, expanding the world of Buffy into other places and other times and providing a feast of imagination for Buffy fans.
