*Notes:
Thanks to Larry for the beta read. Thanks to Wendy Game for the wonderful cover.

Just a few little explanations and such:

Some things are from Canon and some are from what Disney now calls Legend.

A T-16 Skyhopper looks like the toy flyer that Luke is playing with at the first of A New Hope, but for our purposes, it is smaller, sleeker, more like a land rocket.

Luke’s pals were all in A New Hope originally but were cut before release. You can see them if you go to Youtube and search for Star Wars: A New Hope deleted scenes. You can also see more of Tatooine.

Most of the Luke stories are made up though the bit about water thieves is based on a Golden Book tale of Luke as a child.

There is no Zahn Range on Tatooine, but my own nod to Timothy Zahn, the Star Wars novelist who gave us the Thrawn trilogy. Grand Admiral Thrawn was such a wonderful character that Disney kept him when they threw out the rich canvas of Star Wars canon already created.

Thanks to George Lucas, for saving my life with your Jedi more times than I can count.

Notes: I'd like to thank Larry for beta reading this one for me. I have wanted to tell this tale for a long time and decided that this is the time. It is based on an old story I wrote and very loosely on the canon set forth by JMS as canon for the remainder of the series. I stuck to canon as much as possible as well. Those of you who are fan of the short lived series will see many references to the series itself in little ways, especially Alwyn's golden dragons!

Yankee Spinster cover by Zhie

Title: The Tale of the Yankee Spinster
Author: [personal profile] alexcat
Fandom: Sherlock Holmes
Artist: [personal profile] zhie. Zhie, I couldn't ask for more lovely art! Have I made a Sherlockian out of you?
Characters: Sherlock Holmes, John Watson, Lizzie Borden
Beta: Larry, [personal profile] larian, and [profile] luin77. Thanks to you all!
Summary: What if Sherlock Holmes had investigated the Lizzie Borden case?

~~~

Just a few notes on the story itself:
The story of Lizzie Borden is true. I included my source materials at the end of the story if you’re interested in checking out the case. There are many sites that feature Miss Lizzie. My conclusions are my own but I think they are as plausible as any others Ive read.

Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson are taken from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s canon as much as possible. I chose to write in Watson’s first person in that spirit, since the majority of canon is also first person. Though I love all the Holmes and Watsons depicted in movies and television, I still sort of see Holmes as portrayed by Jeremy Brett. Watson maybe looks like Martin Freeman, who plays him on the new BBC Sherlock.

I hope you enjoy reading The Case of the Yankee Spinster as much I enjoyed writing it.

Alex
