Format: Kindle Edition
Most of the stories in this anthology are excellent, which says a lot because I don't usually find collections that are so well rounded as this one. The formatting, editing, the whole look and feel of Detritus is wonderful. These stories bring on a flood of emotions, from melancholy to horror to fear and remorse, all key ingredients for true horror.

This collection is also very unique because it isn't just completely horror or fantasy or bizarro but a combination of many different genres. While there was one, maybe two I didn't care too much for, it wasn't due to poor writing or grammar. All stories are banging. Two of the ones that really stood out for me were "Let Them Into Your Heart" by Lee Widener and "Shots and Cuts" by Mary Borsellino. There were also some names of authors I recognized in the anthology like Patrick Kealan Burke, Jeremy C. Shipp, and Louise Bohmer.

This collection is a must have if you enjoy creepy stories that make you think long and hard about things after you've finished reading for the night.

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.

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.

Note: This book was provided free of charge in exchange for my honest review.

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 with her heart out of tune. She says "I can fix it" 3.5★'s

(Candy Lady by Neil Davies) a bloody collection. The story of a stalker. 4★'s

(Crawling the Insect Life by Opal Edgar) A Creepy taxidermist finally set free of his cumbersome emotions. Sure to have you checking you pillows before you go to bed 4★'s

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.

There were others to be sure but those are the first two that came to mind, at the moment.
