Seth Grahame-Smith's revision of a Jane Austen classic blew readers' minds and became an instant national bestseller. Now, he tackles our greatest president...
When Abraham Lincoln was nine years old, his mother died from an ailment called the "milk sickness." Only later did he learn that his mother's deadly affliction was actually the work of a local vampire, seeking to collect a debt owed by Lincoln's father. When Abe learned the truth, he vowed revenge and kept one passion hidden throughout his life: the brutal elimination of all vampires. His valiant, bloody fight against the undead was all but lost to history, until Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln. Using the journal as his guide, Seth reconstructs Lincoln's life story and uncovers the role vampires played in the birth, growth, and near-death of our nation.
You don't know Abe. Honest.
Using the actual historical facts (or a "possibly" fictional secret journal, depending on how far you want to take the conceit) as the primary source for his latest mash-up, PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES author Seth Grahame-Smith brings ravenous readers ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER. Everyone knows that Lincoln was a towering political figure, but it is less well known how important his height--and his axe skills--were to his vampire slaying? Driven in part by a need to avenge his mother's death, Abe decapitates and stakes all the way to the White House, where he continues his fight against the living, the undead, and other powers of evil as the Commander in Chief during the Civil War.
