CRIMEWAVE issue # 9: TRANSGRESSIONS A HANDFUL OF DUST

Gumshoe Review

“Ian R. Faulkner’s “A Handful of Dust” is the other tale that I thought was exceptional. Matthew delivers a Jeep that he has sold to a widower. The man gives him tea and tells him his sad story. Matthew realizes that the man is clearly insane but does nothing about it. How this one ends will leave a very unpleasant taste in your mouth!”

TANGENT ON LINE. Short Fiction Review

“The premise behind “A Handful of Dust” by Ian R. Faulkner is seriously creepy…. Creepiness aside, Faulkner’s characterization and plotting are excellent, and the twist at the end lends a nice touch of the sinister.”
