    Summary

    This is an ‘Alternate Universe’-type story, set in late 1968 and early 1969.

    Plot does not connect to my other stories. There are several departures from the canon, both from the TV show and the Colin Dexter books.

    Takes place in Oxford. Begins before the shootout in “Icarus.” I have rearranged the scene a bit. Some new characters are there, some old ones are not.

    A ‘regular’ soda is the old word for ‘medium-sized.’

    A tam o’shanter is an Irish hat, somewhat like a beret with a puff on top.

    The Museum of Modern Art (in) Oxford opened in 1965. I don’t know if they had glass sculptures in the early exhibitions. Maybe they did.

    The Oxford Botanical Gardens charges admissions today, but I don’t know if they did in the late 1960s.

    Yes, it’s a fantasy, ultimately, but so are all my stories.

    Thank you for reading them. I hope you enjoy.

    Please note: story contains graphic violence, sexual situations, and foul language.

    Summary

    No matter what you subscribed to, there was one undeniable fact: Anything that was born would eventually die and they would only live on in hearts and minds.

    Except, of course, for the times when things died… and stuck around.

    Which was how Detective Sergeant Robert Lewis found himself bound to the ghost of his freshly deceased governor, the ever ornery DCI Morse.

    Summary

    Set in Oxford, in the second half of 1969. A building burns to the ground. The circus rolls in. Endeavour’s relative pays a visit, for the first time in years. A baby boy needs a christening. Unwelcome gossip causes Joan to take drastic measures. Lewis and Valerie have a big day ahead. Also, there’s a cat. The Seventies are just around the corner.

    ‘Elkwood’ was not a real drama show on the air in 1969. I made it up.

    Please note: story contains graphic violence, sexual situations, and foul language.

    Thanks very much. I hope you enjoy the story.

    Please forgive my relatively simple knowledge of cricket.

    Featuring the standard main characters, and some new ones. I have invented some names and locations.

    Summary

    Set in Oxford, in the spring of 1969. The city is bracing for a boat race between Oxford and Cambridge. DCI Thursday considers retirement. Jim continues his stint as the acting replacement for Thursday. Endeavour and Lewis are not prepared for very dangerous situations. The year rolls on.

    I added middle names for two main characters. I haven't heard these names mentioned on the show or in the Colin Dexter novels. If I got it wrong... somebody let me know. :)

    Summary

    Set in Oxford, in early 1969, after the close of “Union.”

    (Please note, I have no idea what the actual geography of Oxford is like. I just imagine the Tolkien papers, if they have any, being kept in some library, at some college. Forgive any errors.)

    A robbery sees the loss of key papers from the Tolkien collection. Morse and Lewis follow the trail from the crime scene, to the Eagle and Child, where the Inklings used to meet, to neo-Nazi ultranationalist groups. Illness threatens the peace of the Thursday household. Endeavour and Joan have a rehearsal to go to. It’ll be a busy season at the Thames Valley PD.

    Warning: some foul language, graphic depictions of violence, and graphic sexual situations.

    Also, story contains the death of a major character.

    I have again invented some names and locations.

    Summary

    Debryn held Lewis in silence until the climax of the ranted speech resulted in him mouthing a silent yet perfectly synchronized pantomime of Morse shouting, ‘We should’ve gone to Italy!’

    Summary

    Set in late 1968 and early 1969, around the beginning of series six, and right after the close of “Shadow.” A new detective joins the Thames Valley PD. Someone in Joan’s life comes back for a visit – with sinister results. Endeavour and Joan are tested early.

    I have invented a maiden name for the future Valerie Lewis. If anyone knows what her actual premarital surname was, please fill me in.

    Also, I have no idea where the good hotels are in Oxford. As before, I have invented some names and locations.

    Warning: some foul language, sexual situations, and graphic depictions of violence.

    Thank you. I hope you enjoy the story.

    Summary

    Wearing white coveralls and a net veil, Max hunched and murmured over a single bee hive. Morse couldn’t hear what he was saying and he daren’t approach so he simply observed from the back door, content to do so.

    Summary

    He didn’t think about Morse’s will until his solicitor contacted him. There had been too much to do – book the killer, do the paperwork, and then, there had been Morse’s… not-funeral to attend.

    Summary

    Songbirds retain their beauty and grace throughout their lives, and are capable of sating even the most strenuous or exacting sexual appetites with ease. To be able to grant their unique gifts to humans would be to have the golden touch.

    Summary

    But Morse no longer needed to preen. He did it to keep himself in check; one couldn’t show up to work with a five o’clock shadow, after all. (He knew if he did that he’d get away with it; he had before. Half drunk and unshaven, those were always the best times.)

    But he wasn’t trying to attract a mate. Was he?
