In the first story, series mainstays Skinner Sweet, Pearl and company return to Hollywood in the '50s during the Red Scare.

In the second tale, familiar face and vampire hunter Felicia Book is "retired" from vampire hunting when she gets called back into action to track down and kill the most powerful vampire of all time.
