Alan Reid says: “The Honolulu Penny and other stories is a welcome new collection of short fiction by Ken Angus. It comprises thirteen tales, mostly short pieces, although the author’s ability to sustain a longer narrative is also evident in two stories, including the title one itself. Regardless of length, all the pieces included here reveal an elegant and precise writing style. There is an intelligence at work in these stories…..and often they feature a wry, observant humour……at other times a gentle line in horror is employed…..quite often the baddies in these stories get their comeuppance. This collection shows Ken Angus to be a writer in control of his prose. He tells his stories with authority – as soon as you start reading you know that you are in safe hands.”
