STREET SCENES by Laura Mason

 

While reading in the Queen of Swords fandom, which boasts fanfic writers who consistently outdo the aired episodes, I came across a series of short stories by Lisa Weston, grouped under the title "Another Country Heard From." The stories brought to life the extras of Santa Helena, the Spanish settlement in old California where the show is set.

I started taking note of other authors doing what is usually called "bystander" fic in the X-Files and Highlander fandoms. I love these stories, even when the characters that brought me into the fandom aren't present. I hope you'll like them, too. If not, visit my links to other sites.

Inspired by Lisa's subtle and wonderful writing, here are some takes on Chicago life from people outside of the enchanted circle of Ray, Fraser and Dief.
