    Seth Grahame-Smith is at Book Soup on Tuesday, March 2nd talking "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter"

    A proper and gentle lady, in an empire-waist dress, with the lower half of her skull exposed, and blood spattered here and there, is quite the shocking sight.

    And a lucrative sight as well. For that was the image on the cover of Seth Grahame-Smith's "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies," a book that debuted in 2009 to all sorts of talkity-talk and pop-cultural hooha, creating a sensation and setting off a whole subgenre of crazy mash-ups.

    "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" was the artful combining of Jane Austen's world with the undead. Now Mr. Grahame-Smith's latest book, "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," is the artful combining of a Wharton-type society with the adventurous settling of new lands.

    Nah, we're joshing. It's about Lincoln. Fighting vampires.

    Mr. Grahame-Smith will be at Book Soup on Tuesday, March 2nd, talking and signing. Somebody ask him what's next up his sleeve. We see a Visigoths/Chupacabra mash-up.
