"Leaving Home" by Kurt Pankau appeared in Daily Science Fiction on April 8, 2013. "An 'eraser man'--a time agent who erases people from timelines--appears at the doorstep of the mother of a seventeen-year-old son."
Mr. Pankau presents a tidy, original, and memorable piece of flash here, complete with mystery, suspense, moral questions, and heart-wrenching emotional impact. That is not at all easy to do. Bravo! 7 out of 7 rocket-dragons.
