The Nerditude Book Club: Abraham Lincoln - Vampire Hunter

Apparently Seth Grahame-Smith has another book currently for sale in book stores everywhere after his highly successful Pride and Prejudice and Zombies novel.  Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is in stores and selling like hotcakes!

The book's premise is quite interesting apart from the fact that Lincoln hunts and kills Vampires.  It seems the entire story is a symbolic approach towards the historic view he "held" on slavery.  It's and interesting idea since slave owners, like vampires, feed off the blood of their slaves.  But this book isn't just some insertion of random zombie jargon within the original storyline by Jane Austin, this book appears to be completely written by Mr. Grahame-Smith based on in depth research and study of the father of America.

Speaking of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, has anyone else heard about the film based on said novel starring Natalie Portman?  I don't know about you but that'll be a movie I'll be seeing with eager anticipation.
