Short story to be published in ACES ‘The Terrier’ magazine, most likely in the Autumn 2019 edition.
‘Due Diligence’ is the seventh short story in the ‘Selwyn’ series. Please read ‘The Final Vote ‘ ,‘Lost Sheep’, ‘Weapon of Choice’ , ‘The Fee Generation Game‘ , ‘Faster than a man can run’ and ‘Pannus mihi Passionis’ the first six stories in the ‘Selwyn’ series before this.
The Selwyn series is written specifically for the Terrier. Each story is a self-contained episode in the life of an early-retired Council Property Manager from 2003 to the present day and beyond as he continues to maintain occasional contact with his former colleagues from the fictional Herdwick District Council. The characters often present controversial and outspoken opinions on local and central government policy and practice. Please accept that those stories, all names, characters and incidents portrayed are fictitious and are views expressed by the author, not those of ACES. No identification with actual persons (living or deceased), places, buildings, and products is intended or should be inferred. Also, occasional historical background details may have been changed to fit the chronology. Enjoyment of these stories will be enhanced if they are read in order from the beginning. The first ones are available by clicking on these links – ‘The Final Vote’, ‘Lost Sheep’ , ‘Weapon of Choice’ , ‘The Fee Generation Game’, ‘Faster than a man can run’ and ‘Pannus mihi Passsionis’.
