Review of "A Hairy Predicament" by Melissa Mead

"A Hairy Predicament" by Melissa Mead appeared in Daily Science Fiction on February 13, 2013 as the next installment in DSF's every-other-Wednesday fairy tale series.  "Rapunzel's mother tries to find a way to dispose of her daughter's continuously growing hair in this humorous mash-up between Rapunzel and Jack and the Beanstalk."

As an organic gardener (well, a former one), I could not help but be bothered by the thought of composting human hair.  This plot point aside, Ms. Mead offers a clever twisted fairy tale with a plot that is likewise twisted (in a good way).  5 out of 7 rocket-dragons.
