Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith


Original Title: Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter

Indiana, 1818. Moonlight falls through the dense woods that surround a one-room cabin, where a nine-year-old Abraham Lincoln kneels at his suffering mother's bedside. She's been stricken with something the old-timers call "Milk Sickness." "My baby boy..." she whispers before dying. Only later will the grieving Abe learn that his mother's fatal affliction was actually the work of a vampire. When the truth becomes known to young Lincoln, he writes in his journal, "henceforth my life shall be one of rigorous study and devotion. I shall become a master of mind and body. And this mastery shall have but one purpose..." Gifted with his legendary height, strength, and skill with an ax, Abe sets out on a path of vengeance that will lead him all the way to the White House. While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving a Union and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years. That is, until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln, and became the first living person to lay eyes on it in more than 140 years. Using the journal as his guide and writing in the grand biographical style of Doris Kearns Goodwin and David McCullough, Seth has reconstructed the true life story of our greatest president for the first time-all while revealing the hidden history behind the Civil War and uncovering the role vampires played in the birth, growth, and near-death of our nation.

The Last American Vampire by Seth Grahame-Smith


Original Title: The Last American Vampire

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.

Unholy Night by Seth Grahame-Smith


Original Title: Unholy Night

From the author of the New York Times bestselling Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, comes UNHOLY NIGHT, the next evolution in dark historical revisionism. They're an iconic part of history's most celebrated birth. But what do we really know about the Three Kings of the Nativity, besides the fact that they followed a star to Bethlehem bearing strange gifts? The Bible has little to say about this enigmatic trio. But leave it to Seth Grahame-Smith, the brilliant and twisted mind behind Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to take a little mystery, bend a little history, and weave an epic tale. In Grahame-Smith's telling, the so-called "Three Wise Men" are infamous thieves, led by the dark, murderous Balthazar. After a daring escape from Herod's prison, they stumble upon the famous manger and its newborn king. The last thing Balthazar needs is to be slowed down by young Joseph, Mary and their infant. But when Herod's men begin to slaughter the first born in Judea, he has no choice but to help them escape to Egypt. It's the beginning of an adventure that will see them fight the last magical creatures of the Old Testament; cross paths with biblical figures like Pontius Pilate and John the Baptist; and finally deliver them to Egypt. It may just be the greatest story never told.

K Rm Z Defter by Paul Auster


Original Title: K Rm Z Defter

"Kırmızı Defter", okurlarımızın çok iyi tanıdığı ünlü Amerikalı yazar "Paul Auster"ın çok özel, çok özgün kısacık bir yapıtı: On üç öykücükten oluşuyor, ama aynı anlayış içinde yazıldıkları için bu on üç öykücüğe New York Times gazetesinin Noel sabahı yayınlamak üzere ısmarladığı ve yayınladığı "Auggie Wren"in Noel Öyküsü'nü de eklemeyi yararlı gördük. Daha önce "Ay Sarayı", "Yalnızlığın Keşfi", "Son Şeyler Ülkesinde", Şans Müziği" adlı yapıtlarını yayınladığımız ve yakında "Leviathan" adlı son romanını yayınladığımız Paul Auster (1947) genç yaşına karşın, yalnızca yazdığı dilin değil, aynı zamanda dünyanın genç ustalarından biri. Karşılaştığı tuhaf olayları, garip rastlantıları, gündelik yaşamın mucizeye dönüşen ayrıntılarını, gerçek olayları ve gerçekdışı olguları bir "Kırmızı Defter"e kaydetmiş; her öykücük ileride bir romana dönüşebileecek çekirdek ve dokuya sahip. Paul Auster hiç 'hocalık' taslamadan 'gerçek'ten sanat yapıtına giden yolu gösteriyor, öykülerden kuramsız bir poetika geliştiriyor ve minyatür bir dünya kuruyor. Bu nedenle bir kılavuz saydığımız "Kırmızı Defter"in Paul Auster'in roman dünyası için bir giriş kapısı olduğunu düşünüyoruz.

Such A Dark Thing by M. Jess Peacock


Original Title: Such A Dark Thing

Evil, death, demons, reanimation, and resurrection. While such topics are often reserved for the darker mindscapes of the vampire subgenre within popular culture, they are equally integral elements of religious history and belief. Despite the cultural shift of presenting vampires in a secular light, the traditional figure of the vampire within cinema and literature has a rich legacy of serving as a theological marker. Whether as a symbol of the allure of sin, as an apologetic for assorted religious icons, or as a gateway into a discussion of liberationist theology, the vampire has served as a spiritual touchstone from Bram Stoker's Dracula, to Stephen King's Salem's Lot, to the HBO television series True Blood. In Such a Dark Thing, Jess Peacock examines how the figure of the vampire is able to traverse and interconnect theology and academia within the larger popular culture in a compelling and engaging manner. The vampire straddles the ineffable chasm between life and death and speaks to the transcendent in all of us, tapping into our fundamental curiosity of what, if anything, exists beyond the mortal coil, giving us a glimpse into the interminable while maintaining a cultural currency that is never dead and buried.

The Rise Of The Vampire by Erik Butler


Original Title: The Rise Of The Vampire

Before Bella and Edward; Stefan and Damon Salvatore; and Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter, there was Lestat and Louis, The Lost Boys, and Buffy Summers. Before True Blood and Let the Right One In, there was Dark Shadows and Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles. And then there is the most prominent of them all: Dracula, immortalized by Bram Stoker in 1897. Whether they’re evil, bloodsucking monsters or sparkling like diamonds in the sunlight, vampires have been capturing our imagination since their modest beginnings in the rustic fantasies of southeastern Europe in the early eighteenth century. Today, they’re everywhere, appearing even in movies in Japan and Korea and in reggae music in Jamaica and South Africa. Why have vampires gone viral in recent years? In The Rise of the Vampire, Erik Butler seeks to explain our enduring fascination with the creatures of the night. Exploring why a being of humble origins has achieved success of such monstrous proportions, Butler considers the vampire in myth, literature, film, journalism, political cartoons, music, television, and video games. He describes how and why they have come to give expression to the darker side of human life—though vampires evoke age-old mystery, they also embody many of the uncertainties of the modern world. Butler also ponders the role global markets and digital technology have played in making vampires a worldwide phenomenon. Whether you’re a fan of classic vampire tales or new additions to the mythology, The Rise of the Vampire is a fascinating look at our collective obsession with the undead.

The Abraham Lincoln Deception by Aylmer von Fleischer


Original Title: The Abraham Lincoln Deception

Abraham Lincoln is considered by many people throughout the world to have emancipated slaves in America. However, this is not quite true. Abraham Lincoln did not believe in the equality of Blacks and Whites, and his Emancipation Proclamation was not issued to free slaves. He also remained neutral when anti-slavery activists were whipping up sentiments for the passing of the Thirteenth Amendment to the Constitution that abolished slavery. Old Abe also wanted to get rid of all the Blacks in America.
