Un'antologia di racconti del crimine e altre storie maledette tutti ispirati dalle canzoni di Joni Mitchell: si intitola The Beat of Black Wings ed è curata da Josh Pachter per Untreed Books, in uscita ad aprile. In indice alcuni grandi classici che già lasciano immaginare: Both Sides Now, Big Yellow Taxi, River, Cold Blue Steel and Sweet Fire, Shades of Scarlett Conquering, Blue Motel Room, The Dry Cleaner From Des Moines, Sex Kills, Ray's Dad's Cadillac e Harlem in Avana.

With nine Grammys, multiple lifetime achievement awards, inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame, and a Top Ten ranking on Rolling Stone's "100 Greatest Songwriters of All Time," Joni Mitchell has established herself as one of the most important singer/songwriters, not only of her generation, but in the history of popular music. In this collection, 28 crime writers pay tribute to Joni's musical legacy with short stories inspired by her lyrics, representing each of her seventeen studio albums from 1968's Song to a Seagull to 2007's Shine.
