Shelf Awareness reports on 30 October on the finding of a gun in a hollowed-out copy of Robert Stone’s Outerbridge Reach which had been presented to the PorterCounty Library in Indiana. “A staff member at the Valparaiso branch discovered the weapon, but Phyllis Nelson, assistant library director, said they have no way of knowing who donated the book, since thousands are received each month and no records are kept. The Times of Northwest Indiana noted that “police have determined the gun was not stolen.”
