Playa Dust: Collected Stories from Burning Man has been published by black dog publishing. The volume was edited by Samantha Krukowski (Ph.D. Art History, 1999)

Krukowski is an artist, author, and educator who has long been interested in the roles of impermanence, ephemerality and (in)visibility in creative production. She is curious about how images, objects, people, and places function in the context of a society where information is aggressive, multi-located, and slippery. Her writing has focused on the modes and problems of historicizing time-based artworks; presence and absence in the pictorial field; the nature of creativity; and the identity of the maker.
