Gates of Plasma by Carlos Gonzalez

A semi-truck driver meets a mysterious woman while participating in a research study for a pharmaceutical corporation. Romance blooms, but they are separated when it is discovered that this woman emits an unknown substance from her ear that is of great interest to the CEO of the drug company. A cult-like inner circle consume untested drugs and dabble in a primitive form of plastic surgery, while obsessing over an unperformed theatrical script that holds the key to their prophecies. This 320 page opus weaves a labyrinth of narratives and characters into an astonishing dreamscape that examines human flaws and our quest for connection, oblivion or transcendence. Text from here.
