Yes, there is a real Transylvania County in North Carolina! Google it, if you don’t believe me. Ruth Leslie Wright, Esq.–lawyer, clothes horse, and vampire grandma– spends a good deal of time here, though her office is in Asheville, in the Jackson Building, an exquisite Neo-Gothic “skyscraper” built in 1924, when skyscrapers were kind of little.
Istanbul–site of the V-Serum Clinic, tucked away in a strange corner. Take the V-Serum and Voila! A posthuman Vampire with special powers unknown to humans.
The clinic is a well-kept secret. A millennium’s worth of post-menopausal women have found it in the circuitous streets behind and beneath the Spice Bazaar. You won’t find it if you look. Go ahead and try.
It is only through a series of anonymous missives with labyrinthine instructions that the Vampire Grandmas gain admittance. They have been guided by invisible agents to the V-Serum Clinic, there to be transformed into Vampire Grandmas.
For centuries, older women from around the world have sought the clinic out. So the next time you think about cutting off an old lady or throwing your stinking cigarette butt on the ground, think again!
We are everywhere.
