"The Glittering World" is the fifth story in the Tales of the Slayers comic anthology. Written by David Fury and illustrated by Steve Lieber, it was originally published on February 20, 2002, by Dark Horse Comics.


Naayéé'neizgháni is a Navajo woman who, according to Navajo legend, is a mythical Monster Slayer. Riding her horse across the desert, she comes across a caravan which had been attacked by vampires. She follows a trail that leads to a ghost town, where the local tavern was filled with merrily singing demons. She starts a fight in the bar and, with her bow and arrow, is able to kill many vampires.

After showing off her skills, the bartender finally reveals the location of a person he was hiding. She confronts the woman, Tó Bájíshchíní, who had killed her Watcher. Tó showed no remorse over killing a white man, like her own father, a cavalry man who had raped her Native American mother. The two started fighting and Naayéé'neizgháni managed to kill Tó, but not before being mortally wounded herself.

Some time later, this tale is told by a priest to the man who had bought the land that this had happened on. His intent was to build a town there.
