Review of "Parallel Lines" by Russell James

"Parallel Lines" by Russell James appeared in Daily Science Fiction on April 2, 2013.  "An elderly inventor shows his dying lost love scenes from a parallel world where things worked out happily for them."

Mr. James admits in his notes that he is a hopeless romantic, and even though his story concept is not terribly original, he tells it with such poignancy, poise, dignity, and romance that I was in tears (the good kind) by the end of the tale.  So, from one hopeless romantic to another, I offer 7 out of 7 rocket-dragons for this one.
