Dust by L.A. Warman
5.5 x 8.5 inches
This book is an instant waypoint on my return to the revelation: if nothing else, my tears have a place where they belong—mixed into the dust of others.
- Wilmer Wilson IV
Cactus erotica. Dykes taking T erotica. Handmade rope erotica.
Tangentially alien erotica. Clit long like laffy taffy erotica. Death erotica.
In L.A. Warman's anti-sequel to her award-winning debut Whore Foods, two anonymous lovers traverse the vast and lonely desert which has blighted most of the continent. In their possession is the gift of the Vapors, a mystical substance which allows them to transcend death. Yet as they explore the desert realm and each other, they cannot help but wonder if their entwined destiny resides somewhere beyond transcendence.
