Who is this Abraham Lincoln guy anyway?  Apparently he fought a war and wanted to ensure the freedom of all of humanity, or some such nuttery.

I recently did a no-sparge batch of beer, and after all the wort drained from my lauter tun, an image of Lincoln showed up on the surface of the spent grain.

Awesome book actually.

Of course I'm a big Lincoln fan, but to me it was amusing to see how he worked actual bits of Lincoln's bio into the narrative.

Haha where he pauses to weigh his options and then says "a little". :D

I like alternate historical fantasy/scifi. Not much into the vampire/lycanthrope thing but the book sounds interesting.

He used to get all cuddly in bed with his male friends. Especially the ones he really liked. Their are roumers he even got a little kissy face with them. Maybe more.

Not that there is anything wrong with that.

One of my Favorite Abe Lincoln quotes: In response to someone calling him two faced.

"...if I were two faced would I be wearing this one."

So the correct answer is "no, the dress doesn't make your butt look big".  Does your butt look big in that dress?  Oh yes, yes it does.

I read that one, too.  Pretty interesting the way he equated slave ownership with vampirism.  The whole point of the Civil War turns out was to free the slaves from the vampires.  Who knew?

So, apparently Steven Spielberg is making a Lincoln movie. I heard Daniel Day Lewis is playing Abe.

It's Benjamin Walker, filming now in New Orleans, in 3-D, according to the Times-Picayune.
