Abe Lincoln: Emancipator Vampire Slayer
Seth Grahame-Smith's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is an unexpected commercial success that's also received some positive review buzz in various magazines (love the cover art). So much so that the author's already signed a book deal to pen Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. While Zombies sought to retain elements of the manners and language from Austen's classic, it's been reported that the Lincoln book will emulate the popular biographical format that sells so many non-fiction books, something similar to Goodwin and McCullough. Who knew all that rail splitting was just to make stakes.
