filmmaker and author Austin McKinley describes the anthology as
"fascinating, clever, funny, and convincingly chilling. The syncopated
stream-of-consciousness style—almost beat poetry—makes each conceptual
nugget snap, pop, and crackle with life. This is modern sci-fi with
shades of Phillip K. Dick and Harlan Ellison, but with a sharp
pop-culture sensibility and a literary perspective all his own. Marty's

laugh-out-loud hilarious. Between these pages are ideas you'll be
considering for some time to come.”
New Yorkers in an alien slave
ship contemplate the perfect bagel. The victim of a horrific crime
fights to keep his memories private. A near-future cop takes the blame
for the decadent elite and considers a new career. Addicts in Edwardian
London bless Dr. Jekyll for the potion that frees them from repression.
These are just a few of the fascinating worlds of Cosmic Debris.
