Barry Malzberg is one of Science Fiction’s greatest writers of the last fifty years. He helped judge last year’s Galaxy contest and wrote to me expressing admiration for my story. An exchange of emails led us to discover a mutual passion for classical music and interest in music’s greatest mystery: Mozart’s Requiem Aeternam. Who finished it? How? It was my great honor to collaborate with Mr. Malzberg on a story inspired by this mystery. “The Man Who Murdered Mozart” was just published in “Fantasy and Science Fiction“, the March/April edition. You musical friends of mine might want to have a look at it.
