Scope and Contents of the Materials

The Fred Saberhagen Papers consists of printed (paper-based) and handwritten edited manuscripts (mostly of his novels), a small amount of short stories, correspondence associated with those materials, and some miscellaneous materials.  The collection is divided into series based upon format. Series I consists of novels, Series II includes short stories, Series III contains correspondence, Series IV is miscellaneous, Series V is Entertainment Media Adapted from Novels, and Series VI is Media. Each Series is broken down into book series by date of publication.  For example, Series I: Novels starts with his Berserker series (which was his first series) and each of the books in this series are placed in order by date of publication.

The order of his written materials is as follows: Berserker series, Empire of the East series, Vlad Tepes series, Mask of the Sun series, Book of the Swords series, Book of the Lost Swords series, Books of the Gods series, Standalone novels, Omnibus, Collections, Book series Saberhagen contributed to, Anthologies he edited, Anthologies containing his stories, and ending with short stories.

An Addendum was added on 8-28-2014 that added material to Series I, II, III, and IV and created Series V and VI. Another Addendum was added on 8-28-2015 that added material to Series I.
