(Reprinted from the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography [cclapcenter.com]. I am the original author of this essay, as well as the owner of CCLaP; it is not being reprinted illegally.)

This sampler of short horror pieces (both stories and gothic poems) by Lori R. Lopez just barely qualified in length to get reviewed here, with a reading experience to match -- it is certainly competently done, but with very traditional pieces that leave not much of an impression, the whole thing over and done before most people will even have a chance to let the work soak in. And while that's not bad, it's not that great either, a wispy collection that I don't have much to say about precisely because there's not a lot to say; and so I will instead give it a standard middle-of-the-road score, encourage horror fans to pick it up if they have a chance, and mention how much I'm looking forward to Lopez giving all of us something more substantial in the near future.

Out of 10: 7.5
