Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The narrator does find a portal and he believes he sent his son through it, even though, by the rules of portals, he’ll never know what happened there.

Con: One can just as easily read this story as the delusions of the narrator and that there was no portal and nothing supernatural at all.
