THE HOLMES-DRACULA FILE
Fred Saberhagen
Ace Books, 1978

The back of the book reads:

A meeting of minds...or a mingling of bloods? The resemblance is uncanny. The crime is bizarre and unlikely. Somewhere in the mazes of fog-bound London lurks a being more terrible than any Sherlock Holmes has ever faced - and when they meet in a pact of blood and honor, the foundations of Her Majesty's Empire will tremble.

I enjoyed this book and found it to be very well-written. I have only read a few of the Sherlock Holmes mysteries, but can say that this one probably mimics the genre quite faithfully. This book will be doubly interesting for readers familiar with Bram Stoker's Count Dracula.

I definitely recommend it, and give it four fangs out of five.

As the 20th century evolved, rational man turned to science to explain mythology that had pervaded for thousands of years. How could a man be mistaken for a vampire? How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
