"Stork Trek"

written with Edward Wellen

"Another story beyond categories is 'Stork Trek,' by Ed Wellen and Josh Pachter. This brooding tale shows us that we cannot escape our fate, even though we travel to the other side of the earth to avert it."

from Sara Paretsky's introduction

"JOSH PACHTER's short stories have appeared in Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine and Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine. He is co-author of a collection of collaborative short stories entitled Partners in Crime and is the editor of two anthology series, Top Crime and Top Fantasy. He currently lives in West Germany and teaches at the University of Maryland in Hagenau."

from "About the Contributors"

That brief contributor's note includes several mistakes. Partners in Crime never made it into print as a "collection," although all but one of the stories were published individually. Top Crime and Top Fantasy are not series; they are volumes 1 and 3 of the four-volume Authors' Choice series. And, although I lived in Hagenau, the University of Maryland was not located there.
