Publishers Weekly is reporting that Seth Grahame-Smith, author of the spring’s biggest hit Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has signed a two-book deal with Grand Central Publishing. The contract is worth a reported $575,000. The first title is going to be Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Seriously.

I can’t decide if this is a good thing or not. I’ve never gotten into Jane Austin (or zombies) but maybe these mash ups will encourage people who would otherwise never read JA or about Abe Lincoln to do so. On the other hand, this could be a huge travesty. I’m just not sure.
Well, it’s getting people reading and talking about books, so it’s not a bad thing. If it brings some new folks into a bookstore for the first time, that’s all to the good.>>And it’s not as though the original JA novel is no longer available for the purists to read.
