When two suspicious clairvoyants offer Ambrose Altamont and his wife a chance to contact their recently deceased daughter, the wealthy English aristocrat wasted no time hiring Sherlock Holmes to find out their joke. He makes sure that the famous detective and Dr. Watson will attend the next family session, trusting Holmes` rationalist view of the situation. But what begins as a cruel ridicule turns into a deadly reality when the beautiful and young Louisa Altamont appears to her parents in person as one of the Nosferatu - a vampire! The resulting chaos leaves one of the deceptive dead spiritualists. Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Manca Watson alone and confused. With time running out, Watson has no choice but to summon the only one who could help - Holmes` vampire cousin, Prince Dracula. Alternatively told by Watson and the charismatic Dracula himself, Seance for vampire shows that heroes can sometimes be found in most unlikely places. Saberhagen transformed Bram Stoker`s epitome of evil into a noble, funny and terribly powerful character.
