Review: 2020.048 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: It’s amusing watching how the professor’s attempt to protect the naked young woman ends up getting him deeper and deeper in trouble. His concern about his inappropriate relationship with one of his students ties in nicely with what’s happening to him.

Con: It’s a little hard to believe that ancient Greek gods and goddesses cared much about infidelity, given their track record. And, even if they did, a middle-aged professor seems like an unworthy target.
