Desert - A waterless, desolate area of land with little or no vegetation, typically one covered with sand.

Dessert - The sweet course eaten at the end of a meal. Infinitely different, but easy enough to mix up.

Colp: Desert/Dessert features seventeen short stories from new and returning authors. Some are about deserts, some are about desserts, and some are about both.
