Original Fiction: Policing by consent

Another short story from the same 'Verse as The Problem of Jesus. I have hundreds of stories from this setting in my head: it's a fun place to write about. I've been working on a Tourist Guide to this place since about 2003, and I'm still working on it. I hope to share some bits with you soon.

As always, anything put up under Original fiction is Copyrighted: feel free to tell others about this, but please do not circulate without adding the little "© Aidan Farnan 2011. all rights reserved" bit.

And by the way, I did not intend to start both stories in with the words "The Problem is/ The Problem with." Clever continuity aspects, and any and all resemblance to proper writing conventions is unintentional and purely coincidental, as is similarity to any persons living or dead, except the people I base my characters on.

You know who you are.
