Read full description of the books Berserker Base:
Fred Saberhagen had his first berserker story published in 1963. Since then there have been 17 novels or collections of short stories published in this series. The premise is that millions of years ago when two planets were at war with each other, one of them, "The Builders", developed a computerized, self-controlled war ship which could repair and replicate itself and adapt to new conditions, then pass on everything that it had learned to all of the other copies. These machines worked so well that they totally wiped out the opposing race, "The Red Race", and then proceeded to also wipe out the Builders. They then adapted their programming to treat all life of any kind as enemies and started destroying all life anywhere they found it in the galaxy. Ultimately, as mankind started colonizing other planets, they met.
After 20 years of publishing Berserker stories and novels, Fred Saberhagen solicited six other major science fiction writers to write a story about the Berserkers. He then wrote segments to tie all of the stories together and published it as the book "Berserker Base". It worked! He ended up with a collection of stories that flow into each other. They include love, bravery, sacrifice, ingenuity, self centeredness, everything that you would hope to find in humans, aliens, and even computer intelligence. Also, this book stands well on its own. You don't need to read any of the other Berserker books before this one. It deserves four stars.
