More About the Author

Stephen Ames Berry is the author of four science fiction novels first published by Ace/Berkley and Tor/Macmillan, and of The Eldridge Conspiracy, a tale spun from his time at the Pentagon and the legend of the Navy's World War II ship invisibility project, the Philadelphia Experiment. A magna cum laude graduate of Boston University, Berry has a master's in information systems and was a systems analyst and data architect at the Pentagon and Harvard University. He's a veteran of the US Army Security Agency, which sponsored his three-year stint in Tokyo. Post-Harvard, Berry taught and mentored wayward youth in Sarasota, Florida. He now lives in the Mohawk Valley, slave to an entitled cat.

Note: This is a review of the Biofab series as a whole, with an emphasis on Final Assault. Stephen Ames Berry started really strongly with the first book and expanded well enough on the arc of the storyline through the middle books but it really fell part a bit in the Final Assault. Also, when I first read The Biofab Wars many years ago I had been unable at the time to find the other books, so when I finally found them on Kindle I also bought the first book to re-read and get reacquainted with an old friend. This was a mistake, as the author made pretty substantial (in my view) changes to names, places and even plot points for the Kindle release that left me baffled.

Overall: A good alien sci-fi romp but a disappointing finish to a series that had larger potential and a puzzling edit to a book that didn't need messed with.

I have loved this series for twenty years. I was thrilled to get e-book versions. I don't even mind the majority of the tweaks and modifications. One thing I hated however, and the thing that prevented me from rating it at four or five stars, was the change in the origin of Kiroda. No spoilers, but that change came out of nowhere and I did not like it in the least. It does not mesh with how the character is presented earlier in the series. Also, I felt updating to the current time scale was unnecessary, but that was mostly minor and noninvasive. Still enjoyed the book immensely however.

End of the series. Kind of had to slog to get to the final book. Its space opera write large, I'll give it that. Still a fun read but not as fun as I remember from the 80s.

Glad to find these again and glad that they're available on amazon. Just didn't stand the test of memory as much as I hoped.

Think world building, but too fast at times. Shifts gear a lot. Still good but... just.. hmmph. Not sure. Still a good end to the series.

Read the series about 20+ years ago and remembered enjoying it. The first book started out well, but the rest of the story in the following books seem to be throwing a lot of stuff together without really adding to the story and the final book just got tangled up with different threads that supposed to culminate in a rush to an ending that fell kind of flat. I guess getting older,, this series doesn't hold up well over the course of the years.

Closure! I need Closure! I got it big time in this novel. I never thought the AI's could ..... OOp's almost gave it away. :) You will just have to read it. Contact Tom Doherty at TOR books at: inquiries@tor.com and ask him to do a reprint of this title. While you are at it check out my website featuring these novels under the good reads section:
