Lori Lopez has created a vignette of several moments and has brewed them so masterfully, brought them home and served them up in this fresh little story entitled Creep. A few of the pieces could well serve on their own if brought to further fruition, but together work just as beautifully. What a talented lady.

If you like stories of revenge and hatred with a little bit of regurgitation thrown in for good measure, this story is for you. There is action in this horror from the first page all the way through until the final sentence.
This is also one of the stories where you want to feel bad for the thing doing the killing.
I think this is one of those few stories where you want just the right kind of people to read it and have to spend a while looking over their shoulders from the guilt they feel in their heart.

Beware! Lori Lopez has set upon the earth a true menace. Be careful as you walk home! She uses her wide vocabulary to write this horrific and witty tale. I truly enjoyed the journey Ms. Lopez took me on to find out what was the true Creep.
