    During the 1958 World Expo in Brussels a section of the original Mozart Requiem Mass autograph containing the last four words that Mozart ever wrote was stolen. It has never been recovered. In his suspense novel, Requiem for Riley, author Roy Ziegler presents a gripping scenario about the quest to find the precious artifact involving international intrigue and a death-defying plot which unfolds in one of the most fascinating buildings in the world.

    My publisher Imzadi Publishing will issue my short story "Who Shot the Smart Guy at the Blackboard" as an ebook only on Nov. 24. It will be 99 cents on Kindle Unlimited.  When we have set up the actual link, I'll publish that. This is a fun, smart, tongue-in-cheek story about an encounter between a reporter and a politician -- and a smart guy at the blackboard.

    "Incarceration" anthology released on May 18th, 2017. Seventeen authors including "yours truly" wrote tales of possible incarceration methods. Some offer harsh punishments for what seems only a minor infraction, but you are able to explore these methods from a safe distance.

    An Interview with Michael Hauge

    On November 17th I was at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh for the 2016 induction ceremony of Eta Kappa Nu, the honors society of IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers). I was the evening’s speaker and I was also inducted into the Society as a “professional engineer”. The recognition was largely for my eight, recent electrical publications which included seven online courses for registered electrical engineers and a 400-page textbook for engineering students. I truly felt honored to speak to this elite group. The audience included students from the  electrical and computer engineering schools. Carnegie’s computer engineering school was named best in the Nation by US News and World Report; only one in 20 applicants is typically admitted to the School. The electrical engineering school, while not number one, was close behind. – Joseph Fleckenstein

    My latest book, Sodium Balls, A Reverend's Journey, has just gone to print at Dorrance Publishing Company, Pittsburgh. It is to be released in December (2016). It chronicles my rocky road to the ministry, which took some forty years. I call it my Jonah Journey -- God called Jonah, but he ran the other way. I did too. I wanted to sing opera, which I did for over thirty years. (That story you'll find in Tales of a Tenacious Tenor, ASJ Publishing, 2014, available on Amazon, Goodreads, and other venues. And you don't have to dig opera to enjoy this rollicking adventure.)
