Before George Lucas’ Death Star and before Star Trek’s Doomsday Machine came the Berserkers, intelligent, space-faring killing machines whose sole purpose is to destroy all life. The Berserkers have developed a new trick: Berserker units that can pass for human-created androids. They’re gambling on the advantage this gives them and massing for an all-out attack on human-held space. But the humans have developed a trick of their own. They’ve cracked the Berserkers’ basic codes and know what their battle plans are. Both sides are betting everything they have. For one of them, it will be the beginning of the end.

“Saberhagen has given SF one of its most powerful images of future war in his Berserker series.” Publishers Weekly
“The Berserker stories are war stories, but war stories in the tradition of The Red Badge of Courage or All Quiet on the Western Front.” Baltimore Evening Sun
“Saberhagen’s Berserkers are not only a great literary invention, they also reflect our deep and real concerns about technology run amok.” Jack Williamson
“One of the best writers in the business.” Stephen R. Donaldson
