So, apparently some professor at the university must be doing something with McCarthy, because both The Crossing and Blood Meridian are checked out from the end of Dec to 31 Mar! And that far surpasses regular borrowing length, which is 6 weeks. So unless something changes, I won't be able to get to it until next month >_< Just wanted to give you a heads up. :|
