We've selected the stories and authors below as particularly well written representatives of this different, but related, fandom.  Most of the titles will take you to specific story pages on the site TALES OF THE PONDEROSA  Occasionally one written by an author who also has Bonanza stories on our site will be posted on this site, but listed only on this page.
[At this time the Tales of the Ponderosa site has the author email addies on a page separate from the stories, making feedback a little cumbersome.  We urge you to either use the email addies provided here (click on author's name), or take the trouble to seek out the author page on the Tales site.  Feedback is important.]

Most of the links below are NOT to stories posted on this site.  The links will take you to a public internet page where the story is posted.  At this time the links all go to the comprehensive Ponderosa fanfic siteTALES OF THE PONDEROSA.   We will not link to pages on sites which are password protected or which cannot be located through a search engine.
