DUST was conceived in 1962 by Len Fulton, a biostatistician. The name 'Dust' was selected, according to Fulton, because dust is "something that existed in literature and life without regard to style, age or place." There were seventeen numbers issued between 1964 and 1971. Poets, novelists and other writers and artists were featured including Charles Bukowski, d.a. levy, John Williams and Doug Palmer. The magazine featured interviews with Alan Watts, Louis Simpson, Booker T. Anderson, among others. DUST had planned a special baseball-in-literature issue for its 18th number in 1971, but alas, issue number 17 was the last.

Some Cosmic Baseball Association history was made during this cosmic baseball game: The Littleton Magazines set a new CBA record of five doubleplays by one team in a regulation nine-inning game (former record was 4). Magazine shortstop, Dust, was involved in the middle of each doubleplay, establishing the new CBA record of most assisted doubleplays in a regulation nine-inning game (former record was 4). For the record here is the official scoring of the doubleplays:
