People in Bangor, Maine, were very afraid. Here was this wrapped… thing plopped at author Stephen King’s gate last June. And King was nowhere in sight. The horror! Was it a bomb? One suspicious neighbor called the cops — who prepared to do what brave men must: detonate! In the midst of which, the shining author arrived home and told the police, ”I bet you 25 bucks it’s a book somebody dropped off… By all means, blow it up.” They did. It was… It. Left by an autograph hound. Ooooo.
