Honest Abe vs. the Vampires

So much for the Great Emancipator. After this, Abraham Lincoln may go down in history as The Great Vampire Slayer. Seth Grahame-Smith, who recently wrote Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, has signed a $575,000 deal to pen Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Unlike his last book, which was based on Austen’s original text, the new book will be entirely original material, "a presidential biography in the vein of a Doris Kearns Goodwin or David McCullough, but repositioning the president as the greatest vampire hunter to walk the earth." That’s an awfully big “but.”
