Norman Birnbach. It’s All Relative at the Space Time Cafe. (Fantasy and Science Fiction, Nov/Dec 2015)

fsf2015112A first SF story from an established writer, who is an SF reader, as the story clearly shows.

A light-hearted look at love, amongst an investigation into the disappearance (or not) of Schrodinger. The plot is just a way to get a guest appearance from every scientist who has a science theory relevant to SF who ever drew breath. And there are a lot of them from Copernicus and Ptolemy to Hawking and Hubble, all making pertinent and apposite comments. Whilst a previous story in the issue featured hairy canines as barbering customers, this story is entirely a shaggy dog.
