Yes, somehow more bizarre than Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.
And it’s all thanks to the book trailer, which reveals that the novel features Rasputin, Jack the Ripper, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Nikola Tesla, Bram Stoker, Elliot Ness and Mark Twain (as the Hulk).
You can watch the trailer above to experience all the forthcoming wackiness yourself, or buy The Last American Vampire when it hits shelves next week.
As the synopsis explains it:
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.
Not gonna lie, we’re totally gonna give this a shot.
