Review of "Beyond the Gate" by Terr Light

"Beyond the Gate" by Terr Light appeared in Daily Science Fiction on January 15, 2013.  "A retired old man tells his grandson a story about how humans sent all androids into space, and then suddenly has a feeling that the androids have returned."

Mr. Light's tale is worthy of a Twilight Zone episode complete with a twist ending that I never saw coming.  In the author's note, he admits that the story once had a different ending.  I must admit, I am curious about what it was.  The ending as presented is perfect.  7 out of 7 rocket-dragons.
