HASH(0xa0549090) out of 5 stars Great for Berserker fans Dec 31 2013
By Jesse M. Roland - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love the Berserker series. This is a great sampling of short stories told in the Berserker universe. Because some of this was written way back when, you would expect a lot of the mumbo jumbo like "tele-vid tape" and such. Instead he focused more on psychology, drama, politics and even some humor. The story about the Radiant was later expanded and became the novel, "Berserker Throne." Good stuff.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Berserker Wars has been reprinted as part of an omnibus from Baen, Berserker Death, as well as in previous versions, and you will in fact find all the contents online there, just not under Berserker Wars.

Originall the second collection of Berserker Stories put together, if you have read later books and the earlier ones, you may have come across them before.

Still, as usual, the Berserker stories are worth reading, and this volume includes 3 of the top handful of Berserker tales.

Berserker Wars : Stone Place - Fred Saberhagen
Berserker Wars : The Face of the Deep - Fred Saberhagen
Berserker Wars : What T and I Did - Fred Saberhagen
Berserker Wars : Mr. Jester - Fred Saberhagen
Berserker Wars : The Winged Helmet - Fred Saberhagen
Berserker Wars : Starsong - Fred Saberhagen
Berserker Wars : Some Events at the Templar Radiant - Fred Saberhagen
Berserker Wars : Wings Out of Shadow - Fred Saberhagen
Berserker Wars : The Smile - Fred Saberhagen
Berserker Wars : Metal Murderer - Fred Saberhagen
Berserker Wars : Patron of the Arts - Fred Saberhagen

HASH(0xa054951c) out of 5 stars A good series. Feb. 20 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The Berserker series in general is a fun series to read. None of the books by themselves are fantastic, but as a series, they are worth a read.

HASH(0xa05497bc) out of 5 stars Great Collection Jan. 4 2006
By Old Soldier - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I found this book on tape in a library by chance. What a great collection of stories around a horrible idea! Huge, automated killing machines, left over from an ancient war, are destroying life wherever they find it. It's fight or die.

After this book, I read several more of the Berserker series. Unfortunately, none of the characters and few of the interesting plots in this collection made into the later books.
HASH(0xa0549a8c) out of 5 stars Mostly contains short stories duplicated from volumes 1..5 Jan. 17 2015
By Sara Strommer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
80% of the stories in this volume are published in the preceding five volumes. Its a rip-off and I intend to seek a refund for it. It appears the publishers simply grabbed a block of the author's short stories published in the first five volumes, added a couple new ones (or maybe they are from some later volumes, who knows) and fabricated a new cover for it.
