Notes

First Ballantine Books editions, first printings. Presentation copies, inscribed by the author on the title pages, "For Dink Bruce, with thanks and best wishes, Bob Stone". The recipient was Benjamin "Dink" Bruce, a cult figure in Key West, Florida. Dink's father Telly Otto Bruce ("Toby") originally moved to Key West at the behest of his Arkansas friend Ernest Hemingway in 1935, serving the author in a vague capacity of general fixer for some thirty years, and Dink later became a local cult figure in his own right: "Bruce seemed to cross paths with every celebrity who came through Key West. He didn't seek them out; they found him. In Key West, Dink Bruce was royalty" (McKeen, Mile Marker Zero: The Moveable Feast of Key West, p. 90). Robert Stone lived in Key West until his death in 2015. Dog Soldiers was first published by Houghton Mifflin in 1974, A Hall of Mirrors was first published in 1966, also by Houghton Mifflin. Dog Soldiers is a National Book Award Winner and was adapted by Stone and Judith Rascoe into the 1978 film Who'll Stop the Rain.
