I received this novella free as part of an author event held by Dark Fuse.
A man returns to the family homestead after an extended absence. His grandfather has died and in so doing, brings the family back together.
But something else is visiting the homestead as well. Something that sings...something that will sing for generations to come.
I enjoyed the hell out of this story! I look forward to seeing where this author's imagination can take me in the future.

This is my first read of Justin Paul Walters work, and I can definitely say that while not entirely without a few speed bumps, certainly a success as a debut novella with Dark Fuse.

I think what I liked most about this story was the effort and craft that Walters dedicated to developing atmosphere and setting. The barren mid west setting was believably bleak and left this reader with a disquieting sense of dread throughout the entire story. In fact, this setting and atmosphere closely approached

Justin Paul Walters writes a jarring story. Chorus of Dust was ethereal and the theme was one of longing and belief and confronting your fears.
The story follows a man named Adem Comeauxa. When his grandfather dies, he returns to the family farm after a mysterious absence to recollect his past and mend his relationship with his sister Sam (Of course with much trepidation). As Adem does this, he uncovers an evil on his grandfather’s cotton farm... an evil that will force Adem to test his beliefs

Chorus of Dust is one of those stories that's just a pleasure to read. As Walters' debut effort, it sets him up as an author capable of building an atmosphere and tone that runs throughout the story, creating a successful portrait of small town life that tends to be synonymous with horror fiction.

One of the aspects of this novella that I found myself really enjoying was the pacing. Walters manages to give us a languid pace that allows the story to slowly unfold without ever feeling plodding, slo

A so-so minus read that was lacking in the luster department. Simple sentence structure caused my attention to waver. More action, more emphasis on the big moments would have been helpful. At one point the main character, Adem, was being asked why he left for 10 years and never called. He hits the table or whatever, goes to his room, get his coat, gets in his car and leaves. No logical reasoning and very amateurish. We find out later why he left and it does not warrant the amount of tim

Justin Paul Walters lives with his family in Richmond, TX. He currently works as an Electrical Engineer by day and spends his spare time craftily writing through the night. He's kind of like Batman in that way, if Batman were also an engineer who wrote in his spare time. Yup, just like Batman. He writes primarily in the genres of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror, though anything is fair game. ...more
