Welcome to the first collection of Poltergeist The Legacy™ fan fiction and links
! This is a compilation of all the fanfic I received since I began my website in the Fall of 1996 until the time most fanfic writers felt comfortable hosting their own stories (c. 1998.) MaryW., Katy, Michelle and Deb T. were among the first writers who took the plunge and submitted their stories here on legacyweb.com.

Fans are still writing! To read the latest stories, Join the PTLFANFIC mailing list (for ages 18+ only) See Legacy Linkage's P:TL Fanfic Category for more stories that are available on the Internet.
