I love reading, and writing, short stories, so this unique concept caught my eye - stories inspired by the music of singer Joni Mitchell!
The Beat of Black Wings: Crime Stories Inspired by the Songs of Joni Mitchell (Available 4/7)
What a cool concept! Anyone who loves Joni Mitchell's soulful music I'd guess would love reading this collection!
Here, 28 crime writers pay tribute to the multiple Grammy winner's music with stories inspired by the lyrics from her 17 studio albums from Song to a Seagull (1968) to Shine (2007.)
Entries include "Both Sides Now," a first collaboration between award-winning writers Art Taylor and Tara Laskowski; "Big Yellow Taxi" from Kathryn O'Sullivan, author of the Colleen McCabe series; and "River" from Stay Woodson, 2019 winner of the Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine's Readers Choice Award. Other stories include "Cold Blue Steel and Sweet Fire" by Donna Andrews, author of the Meg Lanslow series; "The Dry Cleaner From Des Moines" by Amber Sparks; and "Ray's Dad's Cadillac" by Michael Bracken.
** Of note is a third of the royalties will be donated to The Brain Aneurysm Foundation in Mitchell's name.
