Review of "A Little Sleep" by Melissa Mead

"A Little Sleep" by Melissa Mead appeared in Daily Science Fiction on May 22, 2013.  "A princess is destined to sleep for one hundred years--is it a blessing or a curse?"

I enjoy fan fiction faerie tales such as "A Little Sleep" which provide new twists on old plots and interesting backstories.  There is a nice dilemma at the end which Ms. Mead wisely chooses to leave ambiguous.  However, the story could have been edited to about half its length.  4 out of 7 rocket-dragons.
