Excerpts from Dolly Biters: The Vampire Girls of Victorian London...london1

"With September by now beginning to come to a close, thick pea-souper fogs had started to roll in off the Thames, immersing whole swathes of London in a thick grey-green mist that erased the light from gas lamps and blotted out the sun."

"We turned and we ran, Poppy taking the lead and me following. Through streets, over walls, down alleyways, we ran and ran, all the way down through Whitechapel and to the banks of the Thames. We flitted amongst the boats moored for the night, taking to the darkness by the walls, until we found sanctuary in an alcove deep in shadow. Overhead the quarter moon shone and clouds sped across the night sky."


"That might have been the first night that I'd walked the streets of London caked in blood, but I promise you, it wasn't to be the last."
"I stood before the mirror and hardly recognised the reflection that stared back at me. My eyes seemed darker somehow and cat-like, and my skin white and smooth, while my lips had a deep red tinge to them, like they'd been stained by all the blood that had passed their way over the last year."
 "That vampires once existed in the London of the 18th and 19th Century is not in question. After all, it is this knowledge that has brought you here, to these streets, filled with fog and gas-lamps and alluring women with teeth too sharp and manners too coarse to belong anywhere else but in the old East End of London."
