  • Gerald's Car on Nov. 06, 2011

    A bloody good read...and I do mean bloody!
  • Chocolate-Covered Eyes: A Sampler Of Horror on Dec. 04, 2011

    A frightful, yet sometime humorous romp into the world of Ms. Lopez. Her stories will keep you on the edge of your seat as you turn the pages with glee. I recommend this collection for a great evenings reading.
  • Unleashed: Tail One on Dec. 25, 2011

    An enjoyable tale. Lori Lopez uses different POVs to weave this tale of dastardly deeds. One could almost see the cat stealthily strolling through the bushes in this remarkably detailed excursion. The author uses a refreshing wit as the story unfolds and the reader is treated to a summation of the evil feline's indiscretions. It will make you keep an eye on the neighbor's cat and give your dog a good scratch behind the ears. Yeah, Good Dog!
  • Creep on Jan. 24, 2012

    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.
