    1. nhwvejournal/187709ml[return][return]You have these killer alien robots, right, called berserkers, and they're attacking this human-colonised planet, right, which is, like, unique because it's the only place in the universe where time travel is possible. Apparently. Oh yeah, and because of a bizarre accident with the first spaceship that ever landed there, the locals have recapitulated the whole of the history of European civilisation with uncanny accuracy.[return][return]Having set up this slig [...]

    2. I enjoyed Saberhagen's take on time travel and how it could be used in warfare. He deserves real credit for positing some interesting consequences to time travel well before films--such as Terminator--stepped into the zeitgeist and established their rules for the genre.The book is broken up into three parts, a structure that is actually dictated by the conflict of the story, which involves triangulating berserker activity throughout history. The middle part was slow for many stretches, and my in [...]

    3. I read this book decades ago, and it is still a good read. Hard to write a review without spoilers, but it involves time travel to save various time-line important figures from the berserkers. 3.5 stars.

    4. Berserkers. In Time!Although not built out of short stories, the second entry in the Berserker saga (!) is still essentially constructed as such: three distinct sections of linear chronology - beginning with Neolithic, followed by Medieval, and ending with Renaissance - that could very well each constitute their own short story. Recurring characters (such as Derron our protagonist, a "Time Operative") appear throughout all three sections although Saberhagen's attempt at an emotional arc with the [...]

    5. Fred Saberhagen wrote or co-wrote a series of seventeen books, some of them anthologies of short stories, about the Berserkers. These robotic killings machines arrive on the doorstep of human occupied space with the sole mission of destroying all intelligent life. Brother Assassin is the second of the novels and encompasses three linked novellas originally published 1967Thanks to the unique properties of the planet Sirgol the Berserkers have mastered time travel and send back assassins to kill a [...]

    6. Saberhagen set this story on the world Sirgol, stripped bare by Berserkers -- a race of intelligent machines with a singular purpose: destroy all life everywhere. The machines outlived their creators and now prosecute the war against life all across the galaxy. The planet Sirgol has unique qualities that are conducive to time travel. Lieutenant Derron Odegard knows this. The scientists on his world know this. Now so do the Berserkers. Derron fights to defend what is left of his world in the pres [...]

    7. Mildly diverting, with honest pulpy pleasure, but very weakly concluded. Also very much of its time, an era of science fiction when real men wore jumpsuits and lived behind computer consoles, and women were furniture. Note to aspiring authors-- when you set out to write a book about a time-travel battle of wits with unstoppable murder machines, you can end it by having the human heroes do something suitably clever, or you can end it with a sad deus ex machina. Don't choose the sad deus ex machin [...]

    8. I am quite fond of time travel novels and throughly enjoyed this one. The author obviously adapts actual historical events to tell the tale of a very "Terminator"-like tale in which Berserker's are sent back in time in order to prevent asignificant events from occuring which lead to the development of civilization on this plan to the point where it can resist a Berserker onslaught. A very good book.

    9. This story is a well-conceived and plotted piece of SF involving Berserker "Killing Machines" and time travel. Saberhagen keeps the suspense going while playing out the story in various interesting locales times. Heroic and special individuals targeted by the Berserkers are stymied by the resourcefulness of Derron Odegard, of the elite corps of Time Operatives.

    10. This book is badly named, really only describing one section of the book in the last third of the story. I like the interplay of machines bent on destruction, a society taking refuge beneath the earth, and saving the present through time travel into the past. However, the plight of the lead characters don't grab me, so by the end of the story, I enjoyed the ride but I'm happy to get off.

    11. One of the better books in the Berserker series that I've read to date. It had the feel of Terminator, machines traveling back in time to disrupt the flow of history and kill humans. We'll written and interesting, a worthy Sci-Fi read.

    12. Actually, a book about totalitarism, about good when it could be found even in the most unusual places and creatures, even machines If you lived in an ex-communist country, you'll see it's about the horror of such systems

    13. Quick read, pretty fun. Essentially three short stories involving time travel and berserkers messing with the time streams. Asymmetrical warfare on steroids. The stories are loosely based on actual historical stories, with an overarching story arc to hold the book together.

    14. Boo! Hiss! I can’t believe I wasted all that time on this. It was great for 2/3 and then it just fell apart. It was terrible.
