A Tale of Two Outlaws is a gen crossover novel by Belle Book which features Carmen Sandiego and other characters from the Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? franchise.

From the author:

For some time, I've wanted to do a Zorro story, especially one based on the New World television series. My primary reason is the portrayal of Don Diego/Zorro as interpreted by fanfic writers and as done by the excellent actor Duncan Regehr. Finally, I decided to do a crossover with Carmen, another character I like, although an animated one.

The beginning point for my fic is the two-hour Zorro episode, "A Conspiracy of Blood". Since there are unanswered questions about the ending, it seemed like the perfect point to begin my fic. I am going to have this episode be a book in my fic, and take it from there. The fic occurs two months after the Carmen episode "Can You Ever Go Home again?


The title comes from the Dickens novel "A Tale of Two Cities" and refers to the fact that both Carmen and Zorro are outlaws, although for different reasons.[1]
