The Ballad of the Wayfaring Stranger & the Dead Man's Whore, by Sean Demory.
Sean sent me this short story because he knew I was interested in murder ballads. I found it chilling in a quietly persistent kind of a way and very memorable.
It's about 5,000 words long, and if you share my interest in murder ballads at all, I think you might enjoy it too. Click the Smashwords link above to read or download it free in whichever format you prefer.
