Summary (From the publisher):

Welcome to an interstellar concert beyond your wildest imagining, as you rocket to distant worlds in twenty original science fiction tales powered by the music of the galaxies.

From a detective/choral singer whose perfect ear for music offers the only clue to catching a criminal who has been illegally selling sentient avians... to an isolated space beacon keeper for whom music may prove the only means to save a spaceship caught in an ion storm... to a photographer on a shoot in a desolate part of Africa whose search for the source of a distant melody carried on the desert winds could forever change his life - these are magnificent and evocative tales, memorable performances by today's finest masters of space and time.

Edited and with an introduction by Anne McCaffrey and Elizabeth Ann Scarborough
