Publisher's Summary

Winner of the 2016 St. Louis Writer's Guild short story contest.

A washed-up musical composer has one last chance to be remembered as one of the greats. In his glory days, Malcolm's career was built on his ability to transfer his emotions into his songs, feeding them to his listeners and losing them forever. After years of not feeling, he now has enough of himself back to either live in peace or to perform his masterpiece. The Rhythmancer must choose to love or to sacrifice his humanity on the altar of fame.

    Story
    "Unique, gripping, and emotional."

    The Rythamancer is unlike anything I have read (or listened to) before. Nathan Beck introduces us to a world of music and magic that is subtle and echoes a story much larger than this one tale. Not only is it compelling in its universal quest to find meaning and loose oneself in accomplishments, but it also gives the listener insight into the magic of creation and the beauty of composing music firsthand.

    Alex Freedman delivers the work with skill and provides a perfect setting to experience this work. His skill with voices and flow made listening to this short quite possibly more enjoyable than simply reading.

    If you haven't read it, I highly recommend. And if you haven't already started, please write more in this series!

    "Amazing short story... would love a series"

    I Love This Story... It's complete and yet I want more! It feels like a series could easily come from it. Can't wait to hear the next book.
    The language after the opening built anticipation and felt so natural to the character. I could see the story play out in my mind's eye and when that happens both writer and voice character have created something special. Thank you.
