    Summary

    Before the events of Arcadia, after Morse’s return in Ride, the detective constable is sent out to look over a sudden death and finds himself caught up in a double homicide, both bodies arranged in symbolic manners that reflect the works of the acclaimed bard. A message from the killer indicates that this is not the end, merely the beginning of his work. The spirit of Mason Gull shows it’s hand in this, but dead men don’t walk, and they certainly don’t kill. Could it be the work of an accomplice or a much more convoluted and sinister plot than Morse realizes, one that threatens to choke the light out of him.

    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.

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.

    Summary

              “After him, after him!” As the DI’s cry rang out, the other five officers turned just in time to see the bolting shadow flicker into the mist. “Pair up and split when we get to the road, don’t lose him!”
    All the officers started running, foxes after a hare, but Morse and Jakes, younger than the rest, reached the head of the alleyway first, their partners far behind.
              “You go left,” Jakes panted, pointing, and then sprinted off into the fog.
    -or-
    Our Oxford City boys have cornered a murderer, but he's not giving up without a fight.
