From the Publisher. Like a latter-day Palm Springs, Vermillion Sands is a fully automated desert resort designed to fulfill the most exotic whims of the idle rich. But now it languishes in uneasy decay, populated only by forgotten movie stars, solitary impresarios and artistic and literary failures, a place where love and lust pall before the stronger pull of evil.

I bought this secondhand only because the title is the namesake of the town in Ohio where I was raised. It was my introduction to Ballard and the inspiration for my Embryological House.
