In 2001, after winning the A.E. Coppard Award for long fiction in 2000 with Better Than Home, Joe judged for his succesion of the award. He chose Katherin Glovers story, Raped Diaries!

When they story was published he wrote an introduction for the chapbook!

“Katherine Glover writes with a care and cool precision that reminds me of Ruth Rendell, and with a bleak, deadpan sense of humor that brings to mind the comic vision of Steven Wright. She is a writer of unmistakable talent, and Raped Diaries is as chilling a debut as you are likely to read anywhere.”

A PDF of the story can be found here or at Katherine’s site,
