Author Seth Grahame-Smith took to social media to announce his sequel to the runaway hit novel – ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’ is done, proofed and heading to the printers.

Good news indeed! Sounds like this one is going to be larger in both size and scope. Here’s the official word:
“In Reconstruction-era America, vampire Henry Sturges is searching for renewed purpose in the wake of his friend Abraham Lincoln’s shocking death.
It will be an expansive journey that will first send him to England for an unexpected encounter with Jack the Ripper, then to New York City for the birth of a new American century, the dawn of the electric era of Tesla and Edison, and the blazing disaster of the 1937 Hindenburg crash.

Seth Grahame-Smith ingeniously weaves vampire history through Russia’s October Revolution, the First and Second World Wars, and the JFK assassination.
