Lincoln’s got an ax to grind

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man who has written “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” will follow up with an equally absurd book.

Enter Seth Grahame-Smith’s “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter,” which arrived at our offices last week in the hopes of getting reviewed. It is the ultimate biography of the 16th president, which you may recall is best known for his ax and his vampire-killing abilities.
Alas, although we are going to start publishing book reviews very soon (the first one at the end of the month), we are only going to review books by local authors, authors who make local appearances, or books that profile our beautiful valley.
Here’s the back cover of the book, available March 2 ($21.99):

KILLER UPDATE!: I’m told by Grand Central Publishing that the New York Times best-selling author is “from the Rhinebeck area.” Thus, using the criteria above, I’m please to tell you that we’ll be talking about vampires and presidents in the near future.

    I'd love to read it and review it for my blog and facebook feed if you're not going to. 🙂

    Thanks, Derek, for your offer. But I'm informed that the author actually is from our area, so we ARE doing this.We'll keep you posted.
