Library Reacts to Geology

What fell off the shelf in the October 30 temblor? Geologic forces reached up and pulled... Great Science Fiction by Scientists (ed. Conklin); Alternating Currents (ed. Pohl); J. G. Ballard's Kingdom Come; Philip K. Dick's The Golden Man; Tolkien: A Look Behind the Lord of the Rings by Lin Carter; Bored of the Rings by the Harvard Lampoon; and J. R. R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy, the 1970 boxed set from my childhood with triptych cover artwork by B. Reul (?). The boxed set stayed intact when it fell, so none of the volumes was injured. -- MSP
