The three shorts in this book are so different from one another that it is almost hard to believe that they came from the same mind, but as a fan of this author I can assure you they did. Lori Lopez has a way with her words that puts you right into the stories, just as she does here.

In Pound of Flesh I felt the pain and the need of the mother to make sure her daughter was safe while she suffered through pain and fear.
Followed by A Big Problem where I learned the most rational people are often the ones lacking common sense and fear.
Finally,Knock Knock where love can turn into horror in the blink of an eye. The character learns that love can even find you after death.

Great stories and I highly recommend them to anyone who enjoys zombies, horror or even a few quick and gripping reads to help occupy your mind for a bit.

These zombie takes all feature at least one twist, but they were the sort I saw coming well in advance. Enlivened a bit by some grim humor, but not my bag.

3-Z, by Lori. R. Lopez is vintage Lori. A Pound Of Flesh is beyond explaining. I have never read a Zombie tale which captured the human side of what might happen if the Zombie Apocalypse were to come any better than Lori has here. A Big Problem and Knock Knock are pure delight with what I must describe as a wonderful blend of bizarro and cognitive thought. The ending of Knock Knock was superb. A Big Problem was a gem of a read with many plots and subplots that had me hanging on for more. Read these gems. You will be delighted!
