The MadmanDjarin was not sane. The sun had cooked his flesh, and blisters tore at his skin in wrenching agony as he clawed his way through the sand. The wind was harsh. The desert, a cruel mistress even in the best of years, had turned into a demonic succubus with his own life trapped in her eager claws. Sand pushed against his cracked eyelids and he squinted, groaning against the wrath of these vicious gods.

as it bobs in the bleak mad sea.
Keep in Touch!
