Berserker
« on: March 22, 2008, 02:26:04 AM »
I've been reading some good old books by Fred Saberhagen call the Berserker series.  I read a few when I was in Jr. High and thought they were good so I set out to find the whole series and read them all.  I have almost all but two.  I have enjoyed reading them.  

They are about an ancient race that made machines to fight and kill their enemy but something went wrong with the programing and the machines killed both races and are now working their way through the galaxy killing all life. The stories focus on how Human kind are fighting them.

They are easy reading, and fun.  Anyone else read his works?  What do you think?

OMG! I haven't thought about those books in years. I think I still have some. I  remember enjoying them. I should dig them out and reread them.

Once I finish the last novel in Gordon R. Dickson's Chile Cycle. Even though he died in 2001 it just came out (finished by another author).


Berserker Books, etc.
