Review of "Heaven" by Janet Shell Anderson

"Heaven" by Janet Shell Anderson appeared in Daily Science Fiction on March 25, 2013.  "After they die, murderers from earth wind up spending eternity on Kepler 22b, a lush blue planet where spring never ends."

Ms. Anderson's premise is interesting, even fascinating.  I only wish she would have explained why murderers are sent to a kind of heaven instead of a kind of hell; the story was otherwise beautifully written, but due to this glaring flaw, I can only justify 3 out of 7 rocket-dragons.
