This Week's Travel Reading

You probably knew that Abraham Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States; that he led our country through the Civil War and that he was assassinated in 1865.

But did you know he was also a vampire hunter? 

That's the crazy-ass premise of the book pictured above, brought to us by the author of the only-slightly-less-crazy Pride & Prejudice & Zombies.

The book takes the form of the journal of a man who finds (with a little help from a mysterious someone) another journal--one claiming that "Honest Abe" was also a prototypical vampire slayer (long before anyone named Buffy took up the mantel). 

So far, the book is, by turns, hilarious and horrifying. Which will win out? Only time and page-turning will tell. 

Either way, it's a nice way to warm up for Shocktober.
