Book #16, The Del Rey Book of Science Fiction and Fantasy, edited by Ellen Datlow

Finished this anthology last night. Some superb stories. Just wished there would have been a few more. Review to follow shortly.

Went to the theater and caught Indy IV. Despite the jaded snickering teenagers, the film delivered all the classic ingredients and managed to sustain the charm and derring-do of the originals without ever becoming overtly self-aware or condescending. Some of the physical violence seemed a little over-the-top (who's quaint now, huh?) and the climax was a kinda weird choice, but I thought it worked overall as the pulpy, escapist entertainment it set out to be.
