But when will "Hamilton vs. Jefferson, Federalist Vampire vs. Anti-Fed Werewolf Smackdown" come out?

Grand Central, part of the publishing conglomerate Hachette, has pounced on Grahame-Smith, signing him up for a two-book deal reported to be worth more than half-a-million dollars. [...]

The first book, said Greenberg, will be Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, "a presidential biography in the vein of a Doris Kearns Goodwin or David McCullough, but repositioning the president as the greatest vampire hunter to walk the earth". Unlike Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, there is no source material, so the novel will be all original writing. "But rather than just toss vampires in wherever he feels, Seth is doing a lot of research to see where they could fit in properly to the actual events of Lincoln's life – from childhood on," said Greenberg.

I wonder if this is following Pride, Prejudice and Zombies -- I mean, that book opened the door for such awesomeness as this.

Excellent. I hope that Frank Miller does the founding fathers as a result of this new genre.
