"The Music of Erich Zann" is a short story by American author H. P. Lovecraft. Written in December 1921, it was first published in National Amateur, March 1922. A university student is forced, by his lack of funds, to take the only lodging he can afford. In a strange part of the city he had never seen before, on a street named "Rue d'Auseil", he finds an apartment in an almost empty building. One of the few other tenants is an old German man named Erich Zann.
The old man is mute and plays the viol with a local orchestra. He lives on the top floor and when alone at night, plays strange melodies never heard before.
Dogging the flight of a Soviet Bear bomber in Libyan airspace, a U.S. navy fighter's crew are witnesses to a shocking display of military might: the unearthly power of an unheard-of weapon -- capable of untold devastation. Poised for action on the eve of Saddam Hussein's invasion of Kuwait, America's forces have reason to believe the new superweapon is the key to a Soviet-Iraqi conspiracy. And dire consequences await un the United States strikes first -- and fast. Scientist/pilot Wyn Gallagher and his East-bloc counterpart, Elena Pasvalys, are the key players in their governments' deadly game of strategy. Now -- as the desert war erupts -- they alone may be the only hope of stopping the unleashed fury of Stingray . . . . "White starts things off with a terrific bang . . . . Fast-paced and intelligent." -- San Francisco Chronicle
