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 frightening collection or a desperate need to gather up and keep things close.
We are looking for short stories, up to 5k words. The deadline for submission is October 15, 2011. Stories should fall into the horror/dark fantasy genre. Profits from sales of the anthology will be divided equally among contributors.
Please send submissions to [email protected].
