Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The Berserkers, in their single-minded pursuit of their preprogrammed course of destruction, attain a kind of perverse stature that makes them worthy stand-ins for the dark side of human nature.” New York Times
“The Berserker stories are war stories, but war stories in the tradition of The Red Badge of Courage and All Quiet on the Western Front.” Baltimore Evening Sun
“Saberhagen has given SF one of its most powerful images of future war in his Berserker series.” Publishers Weekly
“These homicidal robots manage to make Aliens look like wimps.” Science Fiction Age
