Finally: Abraham Lincoln, vampire hunter

To cleanse the palate, the Civil War battle you haven’t heard of — until now. Believe it or not, this isn’t a movie trailer (although a movie is reportedly in the works); it’s a … book trailer, advertising the latest historical horror goof by the guy who wrote “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.” I guess they thought a campy vid showing the Rail Splitter splitting Nosferatu’s chest cavity would be guaranteed to go viral. They thought right.
Here’s the thing, though. I want to love it, I’m trying to love it, but … I don’t love it. Vampires? Really? What about an attack by Confederate zombies instead? Or better yet, an alien invasion in which E.T. forges an alliance with the rebels — only to enslave them after victory is secured. It’s the twist Twilight Zone ending that Rod Serling didn’t live long enough to write! Someone call Harry Turtledove, stat.
