Passages: Fred Saberhagen: June 29, 2007

Wednesday, Jul 11, 2007 at 3:28pm

Prolific Science Fiction and Fantasy author Fred Saberhagen died June 29 at the age of 77. Depending who you talk to, he was most well known for one of two things. The first was a long running science fiction series around the Beserkers, a machine race that might well have inspired Star Trek's Borg, which was out to destroy all sentient biological life. The second is a well done series of fictional autobiographies of Dracula, epitomized for many by The Holmes-Dracula File.
