Books that put the horror in history

Posted on

After picking clean the bones of poor Jane Austen, the neck-biting, cerebellum-sucking baddies currently infesting literature have set their sights on new, and equally unlikely, prey. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, the latest bit of horror-revisionism from Pride and Prejudice and Zombies author Seth Grahame-Smith, comes out March 2, not long after Queen Victoria: Demon Hunter. And in June, Beatle-mania meets zombie-mania in Paul Is Undead. The past comes alive in these monstrous imaginings. Then it shuffles over and eats you.
