IF–Dusty

“He would not respond, but only stood there, unmoving. In the dark, he didn’t even look substantial, just little more than tiny particles, dust motes floating together in his shape. Sylvia fancied that if she approached him, and reached out her hand to touch him, he would simply fly apart, and she’d be left with nothing but a dusty pile.”

–From “Inherit the Dust” by Dorian Grimwater.

A note on the above quote. Dorian Grimwater is a famous author of several puzzling (literally) books in his home country. Most of his books offer clues to the whereabouts of multiple stolen treasures. Needless to say, he is wanted by authorities, and his books are bestsellers if only because of the multiple attempts at uncovering the valuables. Dorian’s books come to us only in pieces, and entirely by a fluke, as his home country resides in an alternate universe.
