Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter



Came across this entertaining video of a book I'm most certainly indulge a few evenings!  Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, has caught the eye of many, garnering a 4-star review on Amazon, and is selling quite smartly.  One can the basis of the genre - but the book is also a "retro-historical" view of how one of the United State's greatest presidents had a secret history as a vampire hunter.  Mind you, the above production is a bit - well, unique.  Still, quite entertaining, however.  Below is a psudo-documentary regarding the "secret history", based on "secret journals", which provides the basis of the book.
