Vermilion Sands PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Vermilion Sands free pdf Vermilion Sands is a fully automated desert-resort designed to fulfil the most exotic whims of the idle rich, but now languishes in uneasy decay, populated only by forgotten movie queens, solitary impresarios and the remittance men of the artistic and literary world. It is a lair for beachcombers, hangers-on and malignant obsessions - a place where sensitive pigments paint portraits of their mistresses in a grotesque parody of art- where prima donna plants are programmed to sing operatic arias- where dial-a-poem computers have replaced poets- where psychosensitive houses are driven to murder by their owners' neuroses- and where love and lust, in the hands of jewel-eyed Jezebels, pall before the stronger pull of evil.
