Bonanza Fan Fiction
Ben Stories

Ben is either the star or co-star in each of these stories.   JS, AS or HS after the author's name means one of the other original cast characters costars. WF means the rest of the family plays a significant part in the story. AR means the story presents an alternative to series canon but takes place in the familiar Bonanza old west world. AU means the story takes place in an alternative universe - modern, scifi, medieval, etc. PT means the story is post-timeline.  SC means characters other than original cast Cartwrights play a large role. YC means the story takes place prior to the timeline of the Bonanza pilot episode.   These stories are cross-indexed in the noted categories.
