Review of "Leaving Home" by Kurt Pankau

"Leaving Home" by Kurt Pankau appeared in Daily Science Fiction on April 8, 2013.  "An 'eraser man'--a time agent who erases people from timelines--appears at the doorstep of the mother of a seventeen-year-old son."

Mr. Pankau presents a tidy, original, and memorable piece of flash here, complete with mystery, suspense, moral questions, and heart-wrenching emotional impact.  That is not at all easy to do.  Bravo!  7 out of 7 rocket-dragons.
