Review of "Such Days Deserved" by Lee Hallison

"Such Days Deserved" by Lee Hallison appeared in Daily Science Fiction on June 26, 2013.  "It is a magical summer, and some children imagine that a bum found collapsed in an abandoned lot is really an alien in disguise."

I love reading good stories about "that magical summer," and "Such Days" definitely falls into this category.  All the necessary elements are there:  danger, magic, horror, a moral dilemma, and the inevitable growing up that must occur when summer is at an end.  6 out of 7 rocket-dragons.
