"In the land of gods and monsters..." (in perpetuum)

Hot again today, but not as hot as much of the Lower Mississippi River Valley farther west. Currently, it's 93˚F, with a heat index of 99˚F. Our high was 94˚F, with a heat index of 101˚F.

And it was another more or less wretched day. I did a little work, mostly the last line edits on a story for Ellen Datlow.

The day's comfort movie was Justin Lin's Star Trek Beyond (2016). It's a lot of fun, this film, and I'm especially fond of Sofia Boutella's performance as Jaylah, but I do miss J.J. Abrams' direction. It is a shame there has not yet been a fourth film with this cast.

I forgot to mention in the last entry that yesterday I went back to listening to the Houses Under the Sea audiobook. I made it through a sorta screechy take on "The Dead and the Moonstruck" and a rather good reading of "Houses Under the Sea."

I look at Afghanistan, and I am appalled. I look at America, and I am appalled.
