Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

Unlike the folks at Hot Air or Ace of Spades HQ, I’m actually reading Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (that wasn’t meant to be a knock; the book happened to come out the day before I happened to be in a bookstore*):

…so far, it’s pretty good. Set Grahame-Smith obviously took full advantage of the breakaway hit Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to have an actual writing career (as opposed to a writing career dedicated to making fun of the 43rd President of the United States, which is honestly a bit dead-end these days, in addition to being rather sad). Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter probably won’t win the Hugo, but so far it doesn’t insult the intelligence and it appears to be well-researched.

That being said, there are rumors of a movie: it’ll probably suck.

PS: Oh, my:

*Yes. It grieves me, too, that major SF/fantasy publishers don’t send me books by my favorite authors in the hopes that I will mention them on my 800K hit a year blog. Truly, the universe is conspiring against me.
