Review of "Substitutes" by Colin P. Davies

"Substitutes" by Colin P. Davies appeared in Daily Science Fiction on February 1, 2013.  "A father tries to save his daughter from alien overseers that spread a disease among earth children, kidnap them for use as interstellar navigators, and replace them with 'substitutes.'"

Mr. Davies knows how to tell a good story, particularly when it comes to building suspense.  The ending has a nice, if somewhat predictable, twist.  6 out of 7 rocket-dragons.
