Some Thing

Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
A tongue-in-cheek tale about a man who drank the water, another man and his bazooka, and a lady with a loaded gun. Brought together in a showdown between paranoia and reality, three once-ordinary lives will never be the same. This horror fable is based on an actual environmental hazard along the Mexican border and the potential for disaster. More

Review by: Parents' Little Black Book Reviews on June 18, 2012 :
I'm not sure, after reading this short story by Lori R. Lopez, that I will ever be able to drink water again. At least not unless I boil it first, or better yet take it to a chem lab to be examined.

Our erstwhile protagonist, a man who should be doing his job correctly, has been taking a little less care with his duties than he should. In fact, he has been corrupted by the lure of a quick buck to not report his findings.

Unfortunately for him, maybe he should have been more diligent. His lack of consideration to duty may, in fact, be the start of something much bigger. Is the apocalypse right around the corner? In the local water supply maybe.

Another good short by Ms. Lopez that will keep you thinking.

Review by: JENNIFER THOMAS on May 23, 2012 :
This short story will be an eery reminder of all of the water warnings from around the globe. What happens when someone does drink the water? Well I will tell you know that it can turn into a nightmare!! You will learn just how scary it can be.
Imagine sitting in your home and Something is there with you, you are not sure what it is but for Bash, all he can think is danger and gets his bazooka, yes bazooka. That is all this review will tell you about it, you will have to read to find out, but there is also the lady across the street. With all of the noise in the neighborhood Henna, that lady I mentioned, decides to investigate. Henna is a pistol packing lady with the intention to help her neighbor and keep her neighbor hood safe.
This story is awesome. Another Lori Lopez story that is a must read for all
