The Brother on the Shelf

Short Story by Philip Edward Kaldon

A little boy has his brother go off to war. He gets old and his grandkids want to hear about it. Very short, pretty well written, not terribly interesting. The alien Enemies could just as well have been replaced by Germans and this story could be in a lame middle school literature textbook. And the only other scifi element has been done much better by Rudy Rucker. This story was sad but dull and gets a sad 2 out of 5.
