This is a work of fiction. In general, names, characters, places, and incidents are products of the author’s imagination or are used fictitiously, and are not to be construed as real. Any resemblance to actual events, locales, organizations, or persons, living or dead, is coincidental. However, in three stories—The Tammany Affair, The Ghosts of Red Lion, and The Mysterious Woman—a number of the characters named in the story are based on actual people who lived in and around Anaconda, Montana, near the turn of the century, although their use herein is completely fictitious. Many of the locales are also real, although the author “adjusted” geography and historical chronology a smidgeon to fit the story’s plot. The reader should not interpret these writings to be historically accurate.
