Liavek, Wizard's Row is the third in a series of 5 short story anthologies about a shared universe called Liavek. Wizard's Row was published in 1987 and edited by Will Shetterly and Emma Bull. The Megan Lindholm story co-written with Steven Brust in it is titled An Act of Mercy. Instead of "An Act of Mercy", the Lindholm title is sometimes listed as An Act of Contrition, but this is an error.
