A quick note to say that this site is not moribund. The past year or so
has been spent researching grad schools, applying to them, interviewing at them,
deciding which one to attend, and finally now beginning graduate study in cognitive
science at U Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. When I have hit my stride, working
on this website will be one of the things I'll do in any free time.
Fred has unfortunately been in poor health recently. If you'd
like to show your appreciation for his work, you can drop him a line
at firstname.lastname@example.org or
visit his website: http://www.berserker.com/
He loves hearing from readers.

Card himself! (More updates will be coming along as soon as
I finish applying to graduate schools, mid Dec. 2005)
SUPER EXCLUSIVE! I've just posted a short reflective
piece of non-fiction by Fred Saberhagen from 1980 entitled "The
Berserker Series." Reprinted here with Fred's generous
permission. It's a brief, interested read, so go check it out!
Brother Assassin is being made into a three-part comic book by Allen
Freeman of Fan-Atic Press! It
will be a full color, full size comic and the first issue should be out within
a year of July 2005. For more info, watch the Fanatic Press website. This
will be a great addition to the Berserker universe; I've always thought that
more graphic art was in order.
Finally some updates after a long hiatus! (I've been working
on a few other
things.) I've added some new ruminations and
a review of Berserker Prime. I've also
begun to add some new quotes from notes of
a conversation I had with Fred some time ago.
Rogue Berserker is out! So stop by your
local independent book store and grab a copy of the latest in the Berserker
saga! Or try Amazon if
you don't want to bother getting up.
In other news, I've posted a scan of an illustration by Chris Moore
for the Berserker story, "Adventure of the Metal Murderer," printed
in the Jan 1980 edition of OMNI magazine. Check it out on the ART page.
