Seth Grahame Smith, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, 1st ed., Signed
They are Vampires. Lincoln Chops Off Their Heads
Seth Grahame-Smith wrote Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter during the same crossover craze that produced Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters.
While the book is obviously a spoof of gothic horror novels, it also has a surprising respect for the biography of Lincoln. When Grahame-Smith chooses to make historical claims they are impressively well-researched. And then come the vampires. Don’t worry. Abe has got his axe for them. A fun and funny gift for history buffs with irreverent tastes.
Uncommon in signed first edition; near fine in dust jacket; signed Abraham Lincoln Book Shop book plate pasted in.
