There’s a new review for Detritus posted over at Horrornews.net. Thanks to Sheri White for checking the collection out. Sheri found the collection okay overall, but did mention some of her favorites from Kealan Patrick Burke, Brent Michael Kelley, Jeremy Shipp, and a few others.

You can check out the full review here: http://horrornews.net/51774/book-review-detritus-editors-s-s-michaels-kate-jonez/

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.

Douglas Cobb has reviewed the Detritus anthology. Here’s a snippet of his thoughts on the collection:

“All of the 15 short stories in Detritus are amazing, well-crafted gems of tales about the obsessive nature that often compels people to collect the detritus they like to collect. I won’t get into any great detail about any of the stories, but I’ll mention a handful that stood out for me to give you an idea about the subjects of the tales and to whet your appetites for what lies ahead when you plunk down your cash to purchase this anthology.” –Douglas Cobb

Detritus has received a nice review from The Eloquent Page. Please check it out here:
http://www.theeloquentpage.co.uk/tag/omnium-gatherum/

I’m thrilled the reviewer mentions Armoire among their favorites in Detritus. Here’s a snippet of what pablocheesecake had to say:

Armoire by Louise Bohmer – Sometimes when I read a short story it seems obvious to me that all I’m getting is the smallest of glimpses into a much larger world, Armoire felt like that. I think I could quite happily read an entire novel based around this stories premise – a young woman with magical powers becomes obsessed with collecting the spirits of inter-dimensional parasites.

–pablocheesecake

Thanks to pablocheesecake and The Eloquent Pen for the review.
