"Restorative" by Andy Dudak appeared in Daily Science Fiction on June 20, 2013. "Units from an entity that is part of a plenum of joined consciousnesses possess humans for the thrill of experiencing human feelings and emotions."
This is the most original, mind-blowing science fiction story that I have read in while. Elements of horror are sprinkled throughout for just the right seasoning. The ending is at once thought-provoking, a triumph of the human spirit, and a non-preachy moral lesson. Bravo Mr. Dudak! 7 out of 7 rocket-dragons.
