Short Story by John G. Hemry

A series of disjointed scenes about rocks, and their utility in killing people through the ages. Starting with the asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs and ending with rail guns and bits of metal dropped from orbit. The changes in voice between scenes are neat, but some of them feel a bit off and most of them are distracting. This is the first Analog short story I've read that I wanted to stop reading part way through. The punchline is good but doesn't really make up for the suffering I went through to get to it. This one hit rock bottom for me: 1 out of 5
