Indiana, 1818. Moonlight falls through the dense woods that surround a one-room cabin where a nine-year-old Abraham Lincoln kneels at his dying mother's bedside. Only later will the grieving Abe learn that his mother's fatal affliction was actually the work of a vampire. Gifted with his legendary height, strength, and skill with an ax, Abe sets out on a path of vengeance that will lead him all the way to the White House.
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.
