Village outskirts


As you know, not all is safe and sound in the land of Bruges.

Sometimes strange...

Maybe weird...

Could even be creepy..

LURKS...

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.

Kate Jonez and S.S. Michaels have assembled a diverse range of exceptionally disturbing stories from authors from around the world. Each of the stories, whether about a collection that is world changing or intensely personal, is sure to linger in readers’ thoughts and make them consider the possibility that malice and evil just might lurk in their own hoard of stuff.


My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): creepy
This book houses quite a collection of odd collections that get under your skin and may cause some nightmares.

One story reminded me of the tv show, Dexter. Another one based on viral videos really grossed me out.
