    1. Detritus a collection of stories about collections of strange and grotesque things people decide to horde for whatever reason. Hearts from living people, clocks to stay in tune with their pacemakers and severed heads. Overall the shorts gave me a lot of yawns.(Shots and Cuts by Mary Borsellino) Real articles about killers and lesbians doing shitty stuff. And YouTube videos with people's reactions. After watching them. 3.5★'s(The Tick Rock Heart by L.S. Murphy) When her sister comes to visit wi [...]


    2. The impulse to collect springs from deep within the human psyche Squirrels gather acorns, rats collect shiny things, but only humans assign meaning to the objects they collect. Detritus is a collection of stories about the impulse to collect, preserve, and display gone horribly wrong. The stories in this collection can be about hoarders, cat ladies, people who keep cabinets of curiosities, folks who have secret stashes of strange and disturbing things or any other sort of person who has a fright [...]


    3. Overall, the stories in Detritus are very compelling when taken as a whole; each offers a slightly twisted view of the world. Some stories, such as "The Highest and the Sweetest," deal with more contemporary issues such as the obsession with placing "unique" families on reality TV; others, such as "The Tick-Tock Heart," are throwbacks to the macabre tales of Edgar Allen Poe. The noir/fantasy genre usually doesn't appeal to me, but this collection of stories is well-edited and is fast-paced.


    4. This was a mixed bag of short stories by various authors. Some were good others not so good. A few were just too short to care about at all. But L.S. Murphy (author) of The Tick-Tock Heart was one of the best stories in the book. It was a little predictable, but it was written well.Brent Michael Kelley (author) of Ride, was the most twisted but he writes very well so it was a twisted fun read.About the .epub version I received my only negative mark about the format is there should have been a T [...]


    5. Detritus means: waste or debris of any kind. This collection of story is not a waste at all. Out of 15 stories, I found 3 I didn't care for. I consider that a very good ratio.So quick recap on each story. 1. Chewed Up - Marcus is estranged from his wife Aubrey. He can't figure out why she won't talk to him. Is it his strange compulsion to collect used bubble gum? Or something more? I enjoyed this story and was surprised by the end. 2. Shots and Cuts - A homicide detective recounts tales of gore/ [...]


    6. I enjoyed all the stories with the common ground of "collecting" Quite a few made me cringe. However, one bothered me- it was the Comic book story which seemed to recreate the story from a movie I've seen and upon research it appears the movie came first. This really bugged me as it seemed to steal a great idea. Other than that I was quite impressed with the collection.


    7. Not one of the best anthos I've read - a few good stories, some I couldn't even finish. Full review on horrornews soon.
