Shiva in Steel

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Fred Saberhagen

Narrated By: Edward Lewis

Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Date: May 2011

Duration: 9 hours 15 minutes


In a sector of the galaxy occupied by Earthdescended people, one berserker computer has suddenly and mysteriously developed a tactical strategy unlike anything the human opposition has seen before. Shiva, like the Hindu god of destruction after which it was named, annihilates entire colonies with the help of its fiendish subordinates.

Commander Claire Normandy struggles to prepare for Shiva's attacks, while Pilot Harry Silver realizes that he must deal with his own demons in order to help her. When a decision is made to destroy the destroyer, neither side is prepared for the incredible risks that emerge as the attack becomes imminent. Can either side face the possibility that something wholly unexpected and eerily familiar lies gnarled within the steel?

'The berserkers, in their singleminded pursuit of their preprogrammed course of destruction, attain a kind of perverse stature that makes them worthy standins for the dark side of human nature.''New York Times

    This story was fine, but the narration/editing was so bad it was constantly distracting. There was roughly a two second pause between every sentence. I'll avoid this narrator in the future.
