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

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.

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.

These are decent additions, but many of them appear in other "Berzerker" works? Maybe this should be more clearly stated prior to 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.

This is the only berserker book that I have read, and I think it is the best work of science fiction that I have laid my hand on. "The Jester" is easily worth reading the entire book for.

This is what the series is all about. Snapshots of the battle against the machine, a story here, a story from there. A mixture of times and places. A must read for fans.
