Pronghorn Java is a coffee house on PSU's campus. It is frequented by Jennifer Heyward, where she sometimes reads Straka novels. Both Professor Moody and Ilsa Dirks have been spotted there. The manager, Vanessa, is a trusted friend of Jen's and at one point Jen requests her mail be sent there because she is in fear that it is being monitored (231). Eric Husch visits the place also and leaves an ornate S symbol on the chalkboard as a means of saying hello to Jen.
