1st printing. By Seth Grahame-Smith. Seth Grahame-Smith returns to his vampire/horror/history roots in The Last American Vampire, the follow-up to Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Seth takes the sweeping, Howard Zinn approach to tell the alternative vampire history of 20th century America, as seen through the eyes of the vampire Henry Sturges, Abe's teacher. In Reconstruction-era America, Henry is searching for renewed purpose in the wake of his friend Abraham Lincoln's shocking death. Seth Grahame-Smith ingeniously weaves vampire history through Russia's October Revolution, the First and Second World Wars, and the JFK assassination. The final, elegiac act ends in 2001 with the vampire species in steep decline, and a world-weary Henry retreating from civilization. Hardcover, 6-in. x 9-in., 416 pages, Text Only. Cover price $27.00.
