Seth Grahame-Smith made his big break out with an idea of a literary mash-up combining Jane Austen's classic Pride and Prejudice with zombies. His follow up bestseller Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter made it to the big screen. Now Seth leads this new creative style of literary genre with his recent creation The Last American Vampire, a novel that lays out a time-sequenced past clashing with clever fiction. From the violent crime spree of Jack the Ripper, to the outlandish plan conjured up by Mark Twain to snuff out the invincible vampire Rasputin, the reader will witness an entertaining rewrite of history.

Vampire Henry Sturges returns in the highly anticipated sequel to Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter-a sweeping, alternate history of twentieth-century America by New York Times bestselling author Seth Grahame-Smith.
The Last American Vampire
In Reconstruction-era America, vampire Henry Sturges is searching for renewed purpose in the wake of his friend Abraham Lincoln's shocking death. Henry's will be an expansive journey that first sends 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.
Along the way, Henry goes on the road in a Kerouac-influenced trip as Seth Grahame-Smith ingeniously weaves vampire history through Russia's October Revolution, the First and Second World Wars, and the JFK assassination.
Expansive in scope and serious in execution, The Last American Vampire is sure to appeal to the passionate readers who made Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter a runaway success.
