Crossover Cover: The Problem of the Haunted Tepee


In this story by Edward D. Hoch, an aged Ben Snow meets Dr. Sam Hawthorne and tells him about an unexplained mystery from his past. Hoch’s character Ben Snow, an Old West gunslinger frequently mistaken for Billy the Kid, is in the CU through Rick Lai’s story “The Voice of Zarnak.” This crossover brings in another series character of Hoch’s, Dr. Sam Hawthorne, a physician and amateur sleuth in the New England town of Northmont. The Hawthorne stories “The Problem of the Haunted Bandstand” and “The Problem of the Voting Booth” identify Northmont’s neighboring town as Shinn Corners, the setting of The Glass Village, the first novel written by Frederic Dannay and Manfred B. Lee under the Ellery Queen pseudonym that does not feature the fictional author and detective Ellery Queen. 

This crossover is one of hundreds covered in my book Crossovers Expanded: A Secret Chronology of the World Volume 3, which will be published by Meteor House! All three volumes are AUTHORIZED companions to Win Scott Eckert's Crossovers: A Secret Chronology of the World Volumes 1 and 2!
