Oil and Dust
by Jami Fairleigh
Politics, Money, Power, Religion, and Greed. These are the things we never again need.
Artist Matthew Sugiyama can alter the physical world with his art and his future is secure… until he bucks convention and begins a journey to find answers about his birth family.
Determined to succeed, but without a clear destination, Matthew sets out across a post-technology world, guided only by random flashes of a vision. Bartering his skills as an artist for hospitality and supplies, he soon learns his sheltered upbringing has left him wholly unprepared to face the obstacles on the road or his unexpected yearning to join the communities he encounters. When he uncovers a mysterious adversary’s plan to harm the people he’s come to care for, Matthew must decide what’s more important; the adopted family he has created, or his need for answers about his past.
