The store entrance.

"I told him not to speak up against Mr. Ryan's policies, and now he's missing! Just never came home! I went by the bookstore and all his books are gone too. "
Gloria Parson[src]

Books was a small shop run by Harold Parson on Skid Row in Pauper's Drop. After his disappearance, the store was shuttered by Ryan Security.

HistoryEdit

Harold Parson wanted to help educate inhabitants and improve the conditions of Pauper's Drop, leading him to open his bookstore in its poorest section, Skid Row. Aside from the usual publications, he began stocking and advertising Sofia Lamb's controversial book, Unity and Metamorphosis.

When word got out that he was speaking out against Ryan's policies, Parson suddenly disappeared and his shop closed down. He left his wife and child behind in The Sinclair Deluxe wondering where he was.

The ransacked bookstore.

When Subject Delta arrives at the bookstore, the front door is locked. However, a hole in the wall of the backroom of the neighboring Dr. Hollcrofts allows access to a Control Panel to unlock the door.

The bookstore has been stripped down to empty shelves, with only advertisements for Sofia Lamb's services and a Women's Club adorning the walls. There is a Safe, an audio diary, some potato chips and some ammunition around the sales desk. A Gene Bank is in one corner.
