"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.
