A little while later, she returned, saying she was looking for a series of Kryon books. "Kryon?" I asked. "Is that the author?" She shrugged and spelled it for me. A quick search turned up nothing - nothing by or about Kryon in the catalog.
"Is this fiction?" I asked. She insisted that it wasn't and suggested I search for books by Dave Carroll. Still nothing.
A little more librarian-fu showed that she was actually looking for a series of books written by a Lee Carroll, who channels an angelic entity named Kryon. Kryon is from outer space (or an alternate dimension or something) and makes predictions about world events, spreads blessings, and is the most likely source for all hopenchange. Mr. Carroll is also largely responsible for that "indigo child" movement that convinced stupid people that no, your child doesn't have behavioral problems because of your crappy parenting skills, he's gifted! Unique! More highly evolved!
Anyway, another search showed that we didn't have any of those books, either. I explained to the patron that perhaps the subject was too obscure and, as a result, none of the libraries in our system had ordered the books. (Sounds much nicer than "Lady, I can't find your kooky books, okay?") I then offered her an interlibrary loan which she declined.
I decided to investigate the subject further after she left (whether out of boredom or curiosity, I do this a lot, which explains all the useless trivia cluttering up my brain) and discovered something even more disturbing than a mere prophetic transdimensional interloper...
Lee Carroll been invited to channel Kryon at the United Nations.

But don't worry - the guy's a lightworker, just like Barack Obama.
