Review of "Three Kisses: The Mirror of Reason" by Henry Szabranski

"Three Kisses: The Mirror of Reason" by Henry Szabranski appeared in Daily Science Fiction on January 24, 2013.  Two other stories by the same author, the result of the same writing exercise prompt, recently appeared in DSF and were reviewed in Songs of Eretz:  "Three Kisses: Defenders of the Crystal Casket" on January 22, 2013, and "Three Kisses:  A Royal Breakfast" on January 23, 2013.

"Defenders" and "Breakfast," while beautifully written and executed, were re-tellings of old household tales.  In "Mirror," Mr. Szabranski finally directs his considerable talent to the task of writing an original fairy tale--it is not about what one might think from the title.  6 out of 7 rocket-dragons.
