Review of "Downsizing Pluto" by Shane Halbach

"Downsizing Pluto" by Shane Halbach appeared in Daily Science Fiction on January 7, 2013.  "Hades gets a pink slip from Zeus."

The author notes the obvious--that his story was inspired by the recent downgrade by astronomers of Pluto from planet to dwarf planet.  I enjoyed the witty banter between the personified ex-planet Pluto aka Hades and his boss Jupiter aka Zeus.  Entertaining if predictable.  5 out of 7 rocket-dragons.
