Fred Saberhagen

Has any one by any chance seen the Swords, Lost Swords, Ardneh's World, or any other series of books by Fred Saberhagen available in eformat. Most of the Saberhagen books I've found are hit or miss on having more than one book of any particular series.

Thanks

Unfortunately, the situation for e-publishing whole series of Fred's books is a little complicated. A single publisher rarely (perhaps never - I'd need to check) owns e-rights to a whole series. Often Fred retained eRights. For books Fred retained e-rights, you'll see gradual releases. For books the publishers have eRights, I suspect there will be eBooks soon. Let me know if there is a specific eBook your interested in and I'll let you know the status. Please visit www.berserker.com or www.fredsaberhagen.com jsabe@berserker.com will do for correspondence off forum Best. Joan Saberhagen for the Estate of Fred Saberhagen

jsabe,

Thanks for the reply, unfortunately I am interested in them all.
Fred Saberhagen was one of those authors that I read anything I can get my hands on. I'll just keep picking up ebooks as I find them and hopefully my collection will start filling out. If I do come across any that I need more info I will definitely email you for status.

Thanks again

Unfortuntely, you're correct. Finding Fred's books in eformat is hit or miss.
Slowly, I'm trying to correct this. In some cases the delay is due to the publisher who holds the electronic rights but has not yet put the work into eformat. In some cases Fred's Estate holds the electronic rights but has not yet converted and uploaded the files. I'm working on making as many of Fred's works as possible easily available to his fans. Thanks for your patience.

Thanks for the reply, another thing I've noticed is, it's hard to get a lot of Mr. Saberhagen's book in print either. Seems like our local Barnes & Noble doesn't carry hardly anything by him.

Had the entire Swords trilogy in one hardback book for $5.95 in my hand Saturday. Almost got it too. I will see what other books that store had and let you know. They have over 1million books in this particular used book store.

Luckily I have all the Swords Books in hardcover, SciFi book club came through on that one. I'm looking mainly for some of the older Dracula, Berserker and Holmes-Dracula books. Preferably in ebook format.

It's good to hear from Fred Saberhagen's wife: Joan Spicci Saberhagen, and to know that your husband's writing continues to touch many people.

I remember being enthralled by his Berserker series, and following him with his Dracula series and some of the books in the Lost Swords series. However, it is the Berserker series that fired my imagination.

Welcome to MobileRead, Mrs. Saberhagen. There are many people who care about your husband's work. His writing gave much enjoyment to his many fans. And to me. Thank you.

Some of the books you mention are available from Fred's website - autographed. They're a bit pricey. So, only use as a last resort. I'm trying to get Old Friend of the Family up on the iPod/iPhone this week. Then I'll be working on H-D File. Seance for a Vampire will probably be put up by Titan Pub. sometime this year as Titan now has the eRights. One of the Dracula short stories that Fred wrote is already up on iPod - Legacy application, I think. Holmes maybe in that story too, not sure right now.(Title: From the Tree of Time)

I would really like to thank you for working so hard to get these books out in as many formats as possible. Mr. Saberhagen's work has been some of the most enjoyable books I have read. I started with the Swords/Lost Swords series and after that Mr. Saberhagen became one of my 'must-read' authors. Once again thank you. Please keep us up-to-date on any new formats being released.
