Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
Best of the Web
When you have yourname.com as your website, you know you're a big deal. (Ahem, Shmoop. Just saying.)
Grahame-Smith provides lots of juicy Civil War details in Abraham Lincoln, but for more (and more accurate) info, check out Shmoop's guide to the Civil War.
As the book shows, Abe's relationships are a pretty important part of his life. This website nicely organizes and describes many of Abe's most important friendships. Kind of adorable, if you ask us.
If you're thinking about taking a themed road-trip to visit the graves of everyone involved in Lincoln's assassination (which you obviously are), take a look at this database first, which gives you the info on where people are buried and how they died.
We love us some Ken Burns. His Civil War series has everything, including lots of famous actors reading old letters. It's cool to hear olden days people's reactions to what's going on around them. Just imagine a few vampires here and there.
They didn't have the Internet back then, but they still shared lots of cartoons. Here's a collection of a bunch of editorial cartoons, showing the various reactions people had to Lincoln. (Warning: some of these cartoons could be considered super offensive today. But imagine how much worse it would be if the bad guys had won.)
Movie or TV Productions
Abraham Lincoln: Superhero. 'Nuff said.
What do you think? Does Mr. Lincoln do better with or without the vamps?

Check out this interview to learn more about Grahame-Smith's earlier book, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. That can only be amazing.
"Um, I don't remember writing this."
