When I think about what a pulp fiction novel is supposed to do, the first thing I want is for it to make me smile. And I did that reading through this book. There are five short stories contained in it about the adventures of five different presidents. This is pulp fiction though, so do not expect accuracy, just the opportunity to be whisked away on grand adventures. The stories feature Richard Nixon, Zachary Taylor and James Polk, U.S. Grant, Teddy Roosevelt, and FDR. Nixon has a team of adventures that hunt down the supernatural. James Polk is a ghost hunter. U.S. Grant is a zombie hunter -- not the zombies of today, but the original Louisiana-style zombies. FDR becomes bionic!! My two favorite stories were the first with Nixon and the last with FDR. The story about Richard Nixon was so much fun I laughed several times while reading it.

My only complaint, and this is what kept me from rating the book at 5 stars, and should serve as a warning to anyone who wants to read the book: the last story in it -- the one with FDR; that story ends with a "to be continued in the next volume." I personally hate when stories do that. I purchased a book with 5 stories, I expected 5 stories. More concerning, is the editor said in the intro that he would like to make this book a series with subsequent volumes an annual release on President's Day. That was in 2012 and I am writing this in 2013. As of now, I haven't seen a second volume, so I may never get to read how that rather excellent story turned out.

If you can get past that one rather annoying problem, this book is pure pulp fiction with a rather unique and interesting hook. You do not need to know anything about American history or the presidents to enjoy it (in fact, you might enjoy it more if you let the story create a new legend of these men for you). I highly recommend this enjoyable read. Here's hoping for that much anticipated volume two!
