I really enjoyed this short story collection. For some fans of the show it will be exactly what you've been waiting for, interesting tidbits of the lives of other slayers. Other fans will find frustration in the fact that (and this is mentioned numerous times in the television show) most slayers didn't survive long enough to become experienced, so a tidbit of their lives as slayer is all that there is.

Would probably have been more interesting to read if it were more actually Tales of the Slayer than Tales of the Slayers' Deaths. Depressingly mediocre for a book of this series, the BtVS books are generally of better quality than this one. ( )

Kearsten says: I really dug the fact that (not surprisingly), the stories do not, um, end well. Also cool? At least one of the slayers is, well, a total snob. Despite what Slayers are *meant* to do, it is incredibly unlikely that all of 'em, in the history of Slayer-dom, would have gladly shouldered the honor and death sentence it bestowed. ( )

As the Buffy addicted I am, I loved these stories about the past slayers, especially the one about the battle of marathon. ( )

Disambiguation notice
Tales of the Slayer consists of (so far) four consecutive volumes. Libraries such as the Library of Congress don't count the volume number as part of the title; therefore, to create a distinction between the books, users must manually add the volume number to the title if they wish their books properly combined with the other volumes.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743400453, Paperback)

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.

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 and the swell of their numbers. In our time, that girl is Buffy Summers. But Buffy is merely one Slayer in an eternal continuum of warriors for the Powers That Be. We've known of others: The Primal Slayer, who stalked the earth and the forces of darkness in fierce solitude ... Nikki, the funky hipster whose demise at Spike's hands lent an urban edge to his wardrobe and a bigger bounce to his swagger. Slayers by nature have a limited life expectancy; for each one who falls, another rises to take her place. Tales of the Slayer, Vol. 1, chronicles Slayers past who have influenced -- and are influenced by -- the traditions and mythologies of yore. From ancient Greece, to aristocratic Slayers holding court in revolution-era France, to the legend of the Bloody Countess Elizabeth Bathory, to 1920's Munich, each girl has a personal history, a shared moral code, and a commitment to conquer evil, regardless of the cost.… (more)
