    The Library Phantom Returns!
    by Robert Krulwich

    He? She? It? Whoever it is, the Phantom Sculptor is suddenly back!

    And they will be the last.

    In mid-November, someone at the Scottish Poetry Library spotted a fresh, handwritten entry in the guest book, which said "I've left a little something for you," at the shelf marked "Women's Anthologies X."...

    Thank god you are over that weird spell Steely....these are awesome. Incredibly time consuming (the feathers at least) are amazing. I love books and museums and reading but alas I do not have that kind of talent. What a great little mystery!
