Today’s featured story is from Edgar Award Nominee Joseph S. Walker. The Edgar Allan Poe Awards are presented every year by the Mystery Writers of America. The story Joe chose for the podcast is a short story titled Mercy. It was inspired by the growled word ‘mercy’ in the the Roy Orbison song Pretty Woman. It’s published in a clever anthology called Peace, Love and Crime where each story draws inspiration from a song of the ’60s. Listen to why Joe enjoys contributing to anthologies and what essential thing he fights for every day. You can find all his published work through his website and find the anthology with Mercy in it at Untreed Reads Publishing. Thanks for listening.
