Advance Notice. Seth Grahame-Smith at Book Soup.

Mark your calendars ... March 2 at 7:00 p.m., Los Angeles-based author Seth Grahame-Smith will be presenting and signing his new book, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, at L.A.'s best bookstore, Book Soup.

Our 16th president stood 6'4", so he'd probably have made a fine vampire hunter if he wasn't so busy being honest and freeing slaves. Just as Jane Austen's Elizabeth Bennet seemed feisty enough to be a believable zombie slayer, I buy that Abe would be capable of some serious ass-kicking.

Grahame-Smith is currently best known for his bestselling Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, which started the trend for such books as Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, and the upcoming Jane Slayre, among many others (and even more to come, I'm sure).

Also upcoming at Book Soup--Ed Ruscha. More on that event later!

Book Soup is located at 8818 Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood. The event is free; the book costs $21.99.
