In the Sandbox

In the Sandbox

In the Sandbox is a story about a young archaeology student named Gabe, who is spending a semester in the Yucatan with his schoolmate and girlfriend Araceli, and soon discovers that there is something very weird about the dig site and their professor, Hank Olcott, a man with controversial ideas who is obsessively interested in uncovering the ancient secrets of a lost civilization called the Nacaal. That’s not all Dr. Olcott is interested in, though: Araceli soon catches his eye, and Gabe’s feelings of jealousy and inadequacy lead to anxious dreams of being a helpless child compared to his capable and intimidating adult professor.
