Review of "Rocket Dragons" by Larry Kincheloe

"Rocket Dragons" by Larry Kincheloe appeared in Daily Science Fiction on April 3, 2013.  "In a post-apocalyptic world, a grandfather gives his grand-daughter some carefully preserved stories from DSF."

There is quite a bit of "telling" rather than "showing" in Mr. Kincheloe's predictable tale (the title really does give the plot away).  Most would consider this to be a flaw, but not I.  I like to be "told" a story by a story TELLER.  If I want to be shown a story, I go to the movies.  So, I will muster up 4 out of 7 rocket-dragons for this one.
