“Downsizing Pluto” is now available at Daily Science Fiction.
From my story notes:
I was having a discussion with my sister-in-law Anna about the removal of Pluto as a planet, and she wondered, “What will happen to the Roman god Pluto, now that his planet isn’t a planet anymore?” Call me old fashioned, but I believe that all physical phenomenon in our world can be explained by the antics of powerful supernatural beings. Logically, it was the other way around: the god wasn’t hurt by the downgrade of the planet, the god was downgraded, and the planet followed suit. Or at least that was a more reasonable explanation than a couple of scientists got together and decided that something we all agreed was a planet wasn’t a planet anymore.
