The Sandburg Zone

Welcome, friends of "The Sentinel", and thanks for taking a brief detour into the Sandburg Zone. This page was created to house my TS fiction, and hopefully some other fun stuff on down the line. It's a bit on the weenie side now, but check back again, for I hope to be adding more stories periodically.

This page is dedicated with my sincere thanks and deepest curses to my dear friend, Arianna, who dragged me kicking and screaming into the city of Cascade, where I immediately fell in love with Blair, Jim and the rest of the gang.

And the obligatory crap: I stake no legal claims on characters and images owned by Pet Fly/Paramount. No copyright infringements intended, just borrowing the guys for a little non-profit fun, and I'll return them after I batter them around a bit.

And now on to the stories! Hope you enjoy, thanks for looking, and comments are always welcome!
