Vampire HunterPaperback - 2012
"My baby boy..." she whispers before dying.
Only later will the grieving Abe learn that his mother's fatal affliction was actually the work of a vampire.
When the truth becomes known to young Lincoln, he writes in his journal, " henceforth my life shall be one of rigorous study and devotion. I shall become a master of mind and body. And this mastery shall have but one purpose ..." Gifted with his legendary height, strength, and skill with an ax, Abe sets out on a path of vengeance that will lead him all the way to the White House.
While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving a Union and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years. That is, until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln , and became the first living person to lay eyes on it in more than 140 years.
Using the journal as his guide and writing in the grand biographical style of Doris Kearns Goodwin and David McCullough, Seth has reconstructed the true life story of our greatest president for the first time-all while revealing the hidden history behind the Civil War and uncovering the role vampires played in the birth, growth, and near-death of our nation.

The boom records a detailed history of Abraham Lincoln's journal that depicts his battle against the vampires of America. Determined to rid them after one did him wrong as a child, Lincoln describes every encounter, nead-death experience, and war wages with the creatures that lurked in the night.
In his most recent book Grahame-Smith takes on one of our most iconic presidents, Abraham Lincoln. We all know that Lincoln grew up splitting logs, was a young senator from Illinois and was known as “honest Abe.” But did you know that he was also a vampire hunter. Lincoln’s hunt for the undead started when his mother died at the hands of a vampire. He trained with the same axe that he used to chop wood, and became one of the most feared vampire hunters in the United States. When he was elected president, Lincoln used his power to emancipate the slaves that were the food source of vampires living in the south.
