"These words launched over a dozen alternate realities and histories, invaded existing universes, and even inspired a book or two—with Debris and Detritus running amok through every world they touch.
"With nothing else to go on, writers from various genres created deities that might or might not actually be Greek, might or might not be of any particular gender, might or might not be of this Earth—but they always wreak havoc in ways that range from darkly horrific to brightly comedic.
"Join in the fun, but be forewarned about reading at night. Some of these compulsively readable tales will give you nightmares, while others will have you startling the parakeet by hooting with laughter.
"Debris & Detritus—Unpredictable, Unbelievable, Un-put-down-able"
How very much I wish I could give this anthology a ten-star rating. It is just that brilliant. A+++++++++++++++
When I first learned about it on the editor's blog I wondered what is so unusual about Greek gods running amuck. I mean, isn't what they are always doing in all the stories? I was captivated by the idea so much that I actually <<<gasp>>>> pre-ordered it. There are very few authors for whom I will go that far out on a limb.
Every story is extremely well-written and enchanting. This is really good prose and now I have to explore the Internet for every single one of these writers and start following them. It is a sublime collection of stories. Oh, dear, I just don't have the adjectives.
If you like science-fiction and/or fantasy, you will like this. If you want to have fun while you read and you enjoy guffawing your head off, you will like this. If you appreciate the craft of writing a short story, you will like this.
Honestly, I can't say too many wonderful things about it.
(Actually, this is what makes this particular themed anthology so fun!) Sometimes as two guys, sometimes as two gals, etc.
The stories range in length from flash fiction size to normal short story length.
What is more, it all started with Rhonda Eudaly's story during a 2015 reading at ConDFW.
I really liked Rhonda's story the first time I heard it. I also really liked Mark Finn's story.
The other stories in this anthology were new to me, as were most of the authors. I was thrilled that Robin D. Owens had a Celta story, though. (I've read all of the Celta stories and can't wait to read the next one. This is a paranormal/hard sf romance series on the planet Celta, settled by large ships from Earth many years ago.)
I've read a number of themed anthologies by this point but this one was unique in my experience (having the two lead characters in EACH story).
I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fantasy/urban fantasy/humor, etc.!!
The length of the stories varied as well - but all offered a fascinating take on the idea. I'm a sucker for anthologies because short stories are like afternoon snacks - they feed my need to read in short bites - but with this, you may find that you lose hours as the contrast of the created personalities of Debris and Detritus becomes more addictive with each tale.
