Review of "Said the Princess" by Dani Atkinson
"Said the Princess" by Dani Atkinson was today's offering from Daily Science Fiction. Once upon a time, a princess was imprisoned in a tower by a wicked witch, but this princess can actually hear the third person semi-omniscient narrator narrating her story. It seems that the fourth wall has come tumbling down--or has it? The author comments that the story may have worked better as a play--I agree--but it is still one heck of an original, playful, humorous, tale as is. 7 rocket-dragons.
