Some Velvet Morning
by Nancy A. Collins
Once upon a time there was an Contessa who kept herself eternally beautiful by bathing in the blood of those she butchered. For years and years
she traveled around the world, luring innocent and sinner alike to their doom in order to feed her monstrous vanity, with no one to stop her.
Then, one day, the Contessa met the dreaded vampire hunter, Sonja Blue, with her mirrored-eyes and dreadful silver switchblade. The Contessa
survived her fateful first encounter with Sonja Blue, only to lose her legs in the bargain. No longer able to hunt or kill on her own, she sought
out a partner to help her draw her bath of blood. She finally found the perfect companion in Phaedra, a young runaway with a troubled past, who
she schooled in the arts of seduction and murder, until she became the world's deadliest female serial killer. Together they have left a trail
of death and destruction across the globe, always managing to be just a step or two ahead of the dreaded vampire hunter. But all fairy tales
must have their end. And now that Sonja Blue knows where the Contessa is hiding, living happily ever after is not an option.
